TensarTech ARES® Retaining Wall Systems

The TensarTech ARES Wall System consists of concrete panels in combination with Tensar geogrids which reinforce the soil mass behind.  The high efficiency connection between panel facing and geogrid is a distinctive feature of the system, creating strong and durable, maintainence free retaining wall structures.

Either pre-cast factory produced or wet-cast on-site panels made to exacting standards and close tolerances are combined with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) geogrid reinforcement to provide resillient permanent retaining walls and bridge abutments which can have design lives up to 120 years.



Tensar’s Design service is on-hand to provide standard Application Suggestions to establish viability of Tensar’s products and systems and enable planning costs, right through to preparing certified detailed design and construction drawings for using Tensar products and systems on your project. Upon request, we can provide all necessary design certification and working calculations in a form ready for checking, with drawings issued for construction as well as installation details and construction advice once the project is on site.
