The fence post anchoring solution.
Sleeve-It® SD-1 is a pre-engineered fence post anchoring solution for enhancing below-grade foundational stability in fences placed on top of a segmental retaining wall (SRW). Because of its cantilevered form and other properties, using Sleeve-It during the SRW build permits a code-compliant fence to be constructed eliminating the 36” offset requirements of IBC 1015.2.
How Sleeve-It Works
The face of a Segmental Retaining Wall consists of dry stacked, mortarless concrete units. These units cannot resist an overturning moment generated when a load is applied to a fence post. The Sleeve-It System uses a traditional cantilever design to engage the overlying soil mass, thereby providing resistance to the fence load.
1: Install the cantilevered Sleeve-It units near the elevation of the top of the wall
2: Fill and compact soil to the top of the sleeve
3: Leave the disposable lid on the sleeve until the fence installer places the fence post in the sleeve and fills with concrete
4: The fencing contractor finished the fence, supported by the buried Sleeve-It System
