LINEO™ DIMENSIONAL STONE
The simple design of Lineo Dimensional Stone makes it a popular choice for contemporary walls, pillars, fire features, grill islands and other vertical features. Sold in a 4-stone random bundle, with the largest unit 24” (61cm) in length, all the sizes contribute to the long, linear look. Spacer strips, sold with the random bundle, ensure even separation between each unit and create shadows that help define each stone. Ledgestone™ or Unilock Natural Stone are both excellent choices to complete the look with coping and pillar caps.
LINEO™ DIMENSIONAL STONE
Lineo Dimensional Stone is a modern version of the well known Brussels Dimensional Stone family. Lineo is the un-tumbled version with uniquely modern features.
APPLICATIONS – Design and build projects such as planters, steps, grill islands, pillars, seat walls and water features. Recommended for straight applications only.
CAPACITY – walls up to 2 ft. (60 cm) in height and hardscape features up to 4 ft. (1.2m)
RECOMMENDED BASE STABILIZATION – one layer of DriveGrid™ stabilization grid between subgrade and base material. Use under Standard Base or Permeable Base.
STANDARD BASE – Min. 6” – 8” of ¾” Crusher Run gravel (any road base standard in accordance with ASTM-D2940) compacted to 98% Standard Proctor Density (SPD).
ALTERNATIVE PERMEABLE BASE – Min. 6” – 8” of ¾“ clear open-graded stone compacted to achieve full particle lock-up and consolidation. (Clear open-graded does not compact but does consolidate slightly by rattling the particles together).
LEVELING – Leveling retaining wall blocks directly on top of gravel is tedious and generally does not yield the best results. U-Grip Base units or universal base pads are recommended under all Unilock walls for improved accuracy and speedier installation. Additional benefits include long term structural integrity and an overall better appearance. Poured concrete leveling pads, reinforced with rebar, are also a great way to accomplish leveling, particularly for larger installations. You must ensure that the concrete is poured and finished perfectly in order to achieve a good visual appearance.
CONNECTION – Lineo has small spacer strips that are placed between the blocks during construction to create a 3/16” (4mm) gap between units. Lineo relies on a concrete adhesive for connection between units. In order to make a connection between blocks, the adhesive must be “mounded” higher than 3/16” (4mm) in evenly spaced blobs so that it adheres the units together. Always read adhesive manufacturers’ directions prior to gluing.
HANDLING – Handle carefully so you don’t chip the nice crisp edges.
COPING - This wall does not require coping, but coping is generally used to complete the installation visually. Choose a manufactured coping such as Unilock Universal Coping or any of our natural stone coping options. Install with tight joints or 3/16” gap between units and amend with an exterior latex caulking. Cutting may be required; a diamond blade saw is required to cut coping properly. Glue all coping using a specially formulated concrete adhesive that is strong and will not break down over time. Always read adhesive manufacturers’ directions prior to gluing.
