The DuraMesh system is a proven, engineered, reinforced soil system with a steel mesh facing for slopes up to 90°.
Waiomu Valley Road, Thames Coast - DuraMesh® MSE Wall
Although the first option considered by the project engineer was a timber pole retaining wall, the geotechnical investigation concluded that this was going to be both impractical and very expensive due to the required size of the poles and the amount of rock underneath the structure that could not be easily drilled. After evaluating different options, a DuraMesh MSE wall was chosen. As experts on the system, the Cirtex technologies team worked hand in hand with Llandem Consulting Engineers, to provide a concept design, analysis and optimising the geogrids needed in the reinforced soil structure.
The products used provided the following benefits to the project:
