Quick and easy MSE wire walls for permanent or temporary applications.
Save time and money on your next embankment project with MSE Wire Wall Systems from AIL. These historically proven, cost-effective wire mesh retaining wall and abutment systems feature alternating layers of heavy-duty galvanized steel soil reinforcement and select backfill to create an extremely stable mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) structure.
Fast and easy-to-install retaining wall systems
Our MSE Wire Walls are ideal for fast and economical installation using native backfill materials whenever possible. These types of retaining walls and abutment are ideal for permanent or temporary applications, including bridge abutments, grade separations, crusher walls and, of course, headwalls for AIL’s Buried Metal Bridges or abutments for our prefabricated span bridges.
The versatile Track-Strip Soil Reinforcement System
Our MSE Wire Walls use our innovative Track-Strip Soil Reinforcement System to retain the soil mass behind the walls. Track-Strips make the walls easier to design, store on the job site and construct — resulting in greater project savings. See our brochure for more on this innovative advancement in MSE wall construction.
Retaining walls that adapt well to curves, angles and steps
Our MSE Wire Walls easily accommodate curves, angles or steps. The wire mesh retaining wall facing and soil reinforcement mats can adapt to culverts, bridge piles or other site anomalies.
Wire Wall retaining wall finish options
Wire Walls can be left “natural,” with exposed wire and select rock face, or they can be designed to accept a variety of finishes such as grass, vegetation and shotcrete. Temporary wire mesh retaining walls, with black steel and filter fabric at the face, are also available.
