TensarTech® RockWall® System
- Rock fill gabion faced reinforced soil retaining wall system
- The attractive look of rock fill gabions at a lower cost
- Value engineered design by Tensar’s experienced team.
- Rigorously tested for stability, durability and load bearing capacity
For the attractive look of steel wire and stone from a traditional gabion face, but typically at a lower cost than a mass gabion structure, TensarTech RockWall is a perfect solution for many earth retaining structures.
By using only a single, narrow gabion unit at the face, with lower cost (often site-won) soil fill material behind, reinforced with Tensar uniaxial geogrids to create a stable soil block, the cost and time savings become clear.
The prefabricated galvanised steel cage facing units have been specially designed for face angles between 70˚ and 85˚. The face units are securely connected to the Tensar geogrid soil reinforcement using Tensar’s polymer bodkin joint rather than relying on friction alone, ensuring the structure remains permanently stable.
The TensarTech TW1 System includes advice, training and services from Tensar’s design and on-site teams, pre-construction drawings and installation guidance (including state-of-the-art software) as well as two specific products. These are the Tensar uniaxial geogrid reinforcement (independently BBA certified) and the welded wire units and polymer bodkin connector s.
