Mesa® Retaining Wall Systems
A lower cost alternative to cast-in-place and other conventional solutions, Mesa® Retaining Wall Systems have it all: the dependability engineers require, the efficient installation contractors expect and the aesthetics architects and owners demand. One of the only segmental retaining wall (SRW) systems with a positive mechanical connection between block face and geogrid reinforcement, Mesa Systems offer a full line of smartly designed, cost-effective solutions for both structural and landscape retaining wall needs.
Unlike modular block walls or other SRW systems, which mix and match components from different sources, Mesa Systems are fully integrated; every component, including high strength Mesa Units, Tensar® Geogrids and the system’s unique locking connector, was developed by Tensar International. These components are designed to work together for optimum efficiency and performance, meeting or exceeding industry standards – so much so that core fill is rarely needed.
Their block-to-geogrid connection assures full load transfer from wall face to reinforcement, resulting in unsurpassed reliability. High strength concrete blocks feature compressive strength exceeding AASHTO standards (>4,000 psi). High-density polyethylene (HDPE) geogrids, inert to chemical and electrical corrosion, withstand a variety of backfill materials.
All that makes Mesa Systems the retaining wall solution of choice, serving professionals as well as Homeowners. Independently reviewed by HITEC, Mesa Systems have received DOT approval in most states. They achieve near-vertical or 5/8" setback of the wall face. They’re available in a variety of facing options, including styles, colors, dimensions, textures and finishes. And like all of our systems, Mesa Systems are supported with Tensar’s full range of services, including engineered drawings and site assistance, to ensure successful installation.
