Millenia Wall Solutions® is revolutionizing the segmental retaining wall (SRW) industry by advancing the most remarkable technical innovation in retaining walls since the 1980s. Millenia's recycled polymer retaining walls offer refined aesthetics, outstanding durability, labor-saving installation efficiency, and a lower environmental impact than traditional wall products. Now with 90° corners, Millenia SC100™ wall units can be used for freestanding border walls, columns, terraces, pilasters and planters.
Millenia® wall units express the true beauty of natural stone. "With Millenia's proprietary imaging technology, we make precise impressions of real stone faces and quarried stone from which we form the molds for manufacturing our retaining wall faces and caps," said Paul Forsberg, president, Millenia Wall Solutions. "Injection molding pressures our 100 percent recycled pre-consumer polymeric material into every nook and niche of the molds, capturing every fine detail. Distinctive paints and additives impart the color and texture of natural stone."
"Millenia gets closer to the look of a real stone wall than any other material I've seen," said James S. Martin, president, RidgeRock® Retaining Walls Inc., developer of RidgeRock retaining walls and Millenia's exclusive dealer in North and South Carolina and Southern Virginia.
"The Millenia® product takes on the look of natural stone, and it feels like real stone, too," said Mark Sawyer, president, Stone Center of Indiana, which distributes Millenia® products in Indiana.
"Landscape architects and contractors are looking for a new alternative that is more natural in appearance than conventional SRW materials, and that's what Millenia Wall Solutions has achieved," said Steven M. Link, president, Service Konstruction Supply, Inc., Millenia's dealer for Northern Illinois, Northwest Indiana and Southeast Wisconsin. "The addition of 90° corners enhances the product and supports a wide range of construction applications."
Corner units are available in each of Millenia's four exceptional wall unit styles:
AshlarStone - the traditional look of cut stone with varied sizes of rectangular shapes
ChiseledStone - the timeless appearance of hand-chiseled quarried stone
LedgeStone - a true expression of the texture and cleft of natural stone
SandStone - a classic style with the intricate detail of linear, hand-cut stacked stone
Millenia produces each style in five varied patterns so that finished walls have the subtle differences in texture and intricate detail that are elemental qualities of natural stone. And each style is offered in several natural colors, including Adobe Tan and Slate Gray.
