When vegetation is not an option, a rock facing is recommended. Galvanized welded-wire units function as the construction form and also provide the long-term facing stability.
Welded Wire rock faced retaining wall systems work when your site requires a retaining wall for grade separation. Welded wire basket forms are used in place of the concrete facing units. The baskets are wrapped in a biaxial geogrid reinforcement to hold the stone in place while a uniaxial geogrid product is used to reinforce the soil. Baskets can be made of galvanized steel for applications near water that need to withstand hydraulic forces of streams or rivers.
