Short summary

GRS Muralex is a double-skin retaining system comprising a retaining element reinforced with Fortrac geogrids and an attached, stone-filled front facing. It is used to build steep, hard faced retaining structures (e.g. retaining walls, noise bunds, road and railway embankments, bridge abutments) or for applications that require longer waiting times for consolidation settlement prior to installation of the front facing. The system's front face features a steel mesh that is protected against corrosion by a special zinc coating. The cavity between the GRS structure and front facing is filled with stones sized in line with the steel mesh dimensions. The GRS forms the primary structural element.

Features

  • Economic and eco-efficient construction, e.g. through use of locally sourced materials (soil, stone)
  • Protection against fire, vandalism, UV radiation and external mechanicalaction (e.g. impact/accidents)
  • High-quality earthwork structure due to functional separation of GRS and front afcing
  • Freedom from restraint and deformation due to phased installation of GRS and front facing
  • Logistical flexibility during construction phase due to phased installation
  • No elaborate foundations needed
  • Optional use of machinery for stone filling
  • No extra costs for maintenance and care
  • Wide-ranging design options
