TensarTech® Mesa® retaining wall systems provide the dependability engineers require, the efficient installation contractors expect, and the aesthetics owners and architects demand.  

TensarTech® Mesa® wall systems offer both aesthetic appeal and structural stability, providing the ideal solution for almost any transportation, industrial, commercial, and residential application. Offering long-term durability, increased structural integrity, and simplified construction, all at costs lower than most  alternative wall construction options. 

System Components

The TensarTech®  Mesa® System includes advice, training and services from Tensar’s design and on-site teams, as well as three specific products. These are: 

  • Tensar uniaxial geogrids: high density polyethylene with extremely high durability and no corrosion potential.
  • TensarTech®  Mesa®  modular blocks: high strength, durable factory produced pre-cast concrete blocks that can provide a battered or vertical facing.
  • TensarTech®  Mesa®  connector: for high strength connection between blocks and geogrid reinforcement. 

Single Source Solution 

TensarTech®  Mesa®  system components have been specifically designed to work together for optimum efficiency and performance. High-strength, low-absorption TensarTech®  Mesa®  concrete blocks, high-shear strength connectors, and Tensar uniaxial geogrids work together to form a reinforced soil wall system that meets or exceeds the industry standard.  Tensar’s experienced engineers, using our sophisticated TensarSoil software, can provide everything from free application suggestions to a full design and supply service.

No Fuss - No Risk Construction – Simple and Rapid 

TensarTech®  Mesa®  systems modular block facing requires no heavy lifting equipment. The interlocking block geometry makes placement and alignment of the block easy; placement of the geogrid reinforcement and connection to the block face requires no specialist skills. 

The rest is straightforward earthworks. Typically with TensarTech®  Mesa® , no structural foundation is necessary, mobilisation costs are minimal and staged construction is easily accommodated. Tensar can provide detailed construction drawings as part of the design and supply service, and site assistance is available when needed. No fuss, simple and quick.

Aesthetically Versatile

TensarTech®  Mesa®  concrete facing blocks have a distinctive geometry, which allows the creation of both internal and external curves. Corners, stairs and other features are easily formed. Based on your aesthetic requirements, TensarTech® Mesa® units can be varied by colour and walls can be built mixing different facing options, meaning: designs are nearly limitless.
