The Flex MSE Vegetated Wall System is a unique patented engineering solution for vegetated retaining walls and erosion control.
Using mechanically stabilised earth (MSE) principles along with geotextile technology, the combination of nonwoven Flex MSE bags and patented interlocking gripper plates gives a strong and easy to install geo-modular block structure.
HBB GeoSales Ltd are approved suppliers and our specialist staff are fully accredited to carry out installation works. We also offer a fully indemnified design service through our 3rd party design partners, so we are well placed to assist you from initial concept, design, supply and installation.
Flex MSE is a fully recycled product which is non-toxic, using 97% less greenhouse gas when compared to a concrete block solution.
The bags are filled with a sand/compost mix and once installed are vegetated by hydroseeding or plug planting depending on requirement.
A foundation of only 300mm wide and 300mm deep is required making the system great for installations in situations where access is limited, again, a huge advantage over some alternative products.
Flex MSE bags are easy to handle making installation easy and requiring minimal mechanical input.
With a 120-year design life Flex MSE out lives many other products by 2 to 3 times reducing lifetime cost dramatically.
Flex MSE has multiple applications which are almost unlimited but include:
- Civil Infrastructure
- Culvert headwalls
- Erosion protection for lochs, reservoirs, road and railways
- Retaining walls
- River, stream & canal revetments
- Sound Barriers
HBB GeoSales Ltd can supply pre-filled Flex MSE bags or unfilled bags depending on client requirement. Both solutions are delivered by pallet for ease of loading/unloading.
When comparing whole project cost Flex MSE offers a significant capital advantage as well as an Environmental one over competitor systems.
