Reinforced Earth® MSE barrier bunds
These robust yet narrowly placed back-to-back MSE barriers are capable of withstanding extraordinary, record-breaking impact loads and debris volume assault while remaining intact while deflecting, separating and diverting high-impact debris flows.
These structures are easily installed, reparable from impact, and are easily enlarged or strengthened as needed. MSE barriers are constructed using a decisive choice of facing materials, soil reinforcements and backfill material. Facing materials may consist of precast concrete panels, wire mesh facing, or metallic panels. Soil reinforcements may consist of either geosynthetic strips or grids, or metallic soil strips. The requirements for backfill types used to construct MSE barriers is also flexible depending on site-specific conditions and service life requirements.
