Wrapped-Face [MSE] Structures
Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls (MSE walls) use multiple layers of soil reinforcement to stabilize slopes and retain soil. This technology is often used to build retaining walls, highway embankments, and bridge abutments. Unlike a standard MSE wall, a wrap-faced vegetated solution stabilizes the wall face with fully synthetic components to promote a vegetated surface. That means no metal, no concrete, and no pollution! The durable, vegetated wall face resists environmental conditions for up to 75 years, is environmentally friendly and graffiti resistant. MSE walls can offer significant technical and cost advantages over conventional reinforced concrete retaining structures.
