MSE WALLS & SLOPES
Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls & Slopes are engineered wall systems comprised of alternating layers of backfill and reinforcement via geosynthetics.
CrossSlope is vegetated wire form reinforced soil slope (RSS) system. CrossSlope requires a batter no steeper than 3H:8V, for successful establishment of wall face vegetation. Angles shallower than 1H:1V do not require wire forms. Fabricated with alternating layers of less expensive backfill and geosynthetics. CrossSlope offers ease of construction, technical certainty and a natural appearance when vegetated. With various angles available, CrossSlope allows designers to strike the right balance for their project between cost savings and usable land.
CrossSlope facing is comprised of black wire baskets and struts that act as building forms, UV stabilized biaxial face wrap, and coco matt. Face wrap is there to provide structural stability while coco matt provides 36 months of erosion protection for vegetation to establish. The wall is reinforced using high-strength polymeric geogrids.
MSE systems make for more efficient use of limited land resources by allowing steeper, stable slopes that are also aesthetically pleasing and technically sound.
CrossWall is a rock faced wire form mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall system that is an economical alternative to cast-in-place, and other conventional retaining wall systems. CrossWall can be built near-vertical or with a setback to create desired esthetics. CrossWall’s flexibility allows it to provide greater settlement tolerances than a conventional concrete wall. It is also easy to install and does not require specialized training.
CrossWall facing is comprised of galvanized wire forms and struts and UV stabilized biaxial face wrap. The wall is reinforced using high-strength polymeric geogrids.
Cross Country Canada can supply all the elements needed to create your MSE wall and/or slope system.
Uniaxial Geogrids are typically used in reinforced slopes or MSE Walls where their high tensile strength resists creep and elongation when exposed to high loads for long periods of time.
