Two-Stage Walls

Highly Flexible structures for differential settlements.


Accommodates wall movements that often occur when a heavy MSE backfill structure is built on compressible foundation soils.


This system is recommended for all MSE installations with expected differential settlements of 1/100 or more and the total expected settlement is greater than three feet.


An MSEPlus™ Wire Wall with an outer covering of concrete facing panels for an architectural finish.


Construction involves first building the wire-faced wall to accommodate the expected foundation settlements. After primary settlement and a portion of secondary settlement is complete, the concrete facing panels are placed approximately three feet in front of the wire wall face. Each panel is connected to its reinforcement in the backfill by means of coil loop connectors and threaded coil rods, allowing for appropriate relative movement between the primary soil reinforcement and facing panels.
