Reinforced Soil Structures – Face containment

The face of the system is a metal formwork made from a pre-formed differentiated mesh, usually 8 mm dia. electro welded wires. Each panel is fitted with tie rods to increase the rigidity of the face and to enable suitable compaction within 1 meter of the face.

The metal formwork is not a structural part of the face but it gives fast installation and linearity.
