The Same Dependable Allan Block System in a Brand New Centuries Old Look

AB Aztec Collection

Introducing the AB Aztec Collection. Inspired by the walls in Cusco, Peru, Capital of the Incans which are more than 500 years old. No need to learn the tricks of a new system, AB Aztec uses the same installation steps and engineering calculations as the AB and AB Europa Collections. The difference is in the smooth, molded face that is subtle but impressive.

AB Aztec Collection



Easy Installation

The AB Aztec Collection is easy to install. These blocks dry-stack without mortar or footings. The hollow core feature makes them easier to handle and promotes good drainage behind the wall. The raised lip and notch lock each block in place and creates a natural setback. Use one block size or mix the different block sizes together in the wall to create a beautiful pattern. The AB Aztec Collection is right at home in residential settings where retaining walls 6’ and under are typically called for, and up to the task on larger retaining walls 6’ and over.


New for 2016! Currently available in British Columbia, Canada with more locations on the way! Check with your local Allan Block manufacturer to ask when this product will be available in your area.
