DuraGreen – Reinforced Soil System

The DuraGreen is a vegetated reinforced soil wall system, also called Mechanically Stabilised Earth Wall (MSEW), that is a proven engineered solution for slopes up to 70 ̊.

DuraGreen is a cost-effective and fast method to build MSE wall systems and consists of StrataGrid® PET geogrid and soil filled facing socks or bags. The facing forms the correct angle and provides a medium for vegetation to establish.

StrataGrid is wrapped around the face to form the face angle, bags or socks filled with soil are used this provides a medium for vegetation to establish in.

MSEW’s are becoming increasingly popular as an economical and effective solution for steepened slopes and retaining walls.

Each DuraGreen Reinforced Soil System component is carefully selected and engineered to work together to provide a structurally sound long term solution. Cirtex® can provide design support using the latest slope reinforcement and MSEW programs. Cirtex also provides plans and methodologies in CAD format customised to suit your project. This is available either as a concept service free of charge or as a complete service with producer statement provided. Some costs would be incurred if a producer statement is required.
