DuraMesh® – Reinforced Soil System

THE DURAMESH® SYSTEM IS A PROVEN, ENGINEERED, REINFORCED SOIL SYSTEM ALLOWING MSE WALLS AND SLOPES TO BE CONSTRUCTED UP TO 90° WITH DIFFERENT VISUAL APPEARANCES, FROM VEGETATED TO ROCK FACED.

The DuraMesh system consists of the DuraMesh facing panels providing the face support, StrataGrid® PET reinforcement geogrid, and DuraFlow or Secudrain® drainage composites providing drainage at the back of the MSE mass.

The facing can be vegetated, stone face for a gabion type appearance or a geotextile wrap when there is a concrete facing panel being placed in front of the MSE wall. Cirtex® offers typical plans and methodologies and can customise this to suit your project.

The DuraMesh system is available in a number of different face angles ranging from 60 to 90 degrees available to meet the requirements of the project.

Facing panels are available in a range of materials and coatings as listed: black steel, galvanised steel, galfan + PVC coated steel and stainless steel to meet requirements of the different design service life.

The DuraMesh facing panels are available in a range of materials and coatings as listed: black steel, galvanised steel, galfan + PVC coated steel and stainless steel to give a design service life of up to 120 years.

Reinforced soil walls, also called Mechanically Stabilised Earth Walls (MSEW), are becoming increasingly popular as an economical and effective solution for steepened slopes and retaining walls.

Each DuraMesh reinforced soil system component is individually selected and engineered to work together to provide a structurally sound long-term solution. All structural elements are manufactured to strict ISO 9001 procedures and quality assurance data is available to the engineer as required.

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.
