About

The DuraMesh sytstm is a proven, engineered, reinforced soil system allowing MSE walls and slopes to be constructed up to 90° with different visual appearances from vegetated to rock faced.
The DuraMesh system consists of the DuraMesh facing panels providing the face support, StrataGrid® PET reinforcement geogrid, and DuraFlow or DuraFlowQ drainage composites providing drainage at the back of the MSE mass.

The facing can be vegetated, stone face for a gabion type appearance or a geotextile wrap when there is a concrete facing panel being placed in front of the MSE wall. Cirtex® offers typical plans and methodologies and can customise this to suit your project.

The DuraMesh system is available in a number of different face angles ranging from 60 to 90 degrees available to meet the requirements of the project.

DuraSlope system is used for slopes up to 45º, utilising primary structural geogirds for internal stability of the slope.

The DuraSlope system will often incorporate a permanent Turf Reinforcement Mat (TRM) laid over the slope surface to prevent erosion and promote vegetative growth at the face.

Reinforced soil walls, also called Mechanically Stabilised Earth Walls (MSEW), are becoming increasingly popular as an economical and effective solution for steepened slopes and retaining walls.

Each DuraSlope reinforced soil system component is individually selected and engineered to work together to provide a structurally sound long-term solution. All structural elements are manufactured to strict ISO 9001 procedures and quality assurance data is available to the engineer as required.

Cirtex® can provide design support using the latest slope reinforcement and MSEW programs. Cirtex also provides plans and methodologies in CAD format customised to suit your project. This is available either as a concept service free of charge or as a complete service with producer statement provided. Some costs would be incurred if a producer statement is required.

The DuraGreen MSEW is a proven engineered solutions for slopes up to 70 ̊.

DuraGreen is a cost-effective and fast method to build MSE wall systems and consists of StrataGrid® PET geogrid and soil filled facing socks or bags. The facing forms the correct angle and provides a medium for vegetation to establish.

StrataGrid is wrapped around the face to form the face angle, bags or socks filled with soil are used this provides a medium for vegetation to establish in.

MSEW’s are becoming increasingly popular as an economical and effective solution for steepened slopes and retaining walls.

Each DuraGreen Reinforced Soil System component is carefully selected and engineered to work together to provide a structurally sound long term solution. Cirtex® can provide design support using the latest slope reinforcement and MSEW programs. Cirtex also provides plans and methodologies in CAD format customised to suit your project. This is available either as a concept service free of charge or as a complete service with producer statement provided. Some costs would be incurred if a producer statement is required.

Sustainability Outcomes

The Duramesh / Duragreen / Duraslope system allows for low impact structures versus timber and concrete alternatives reducing carbon impact and materials brought to site. Also allows for the fave to be vegetated for long term benefits.
