Tensar® Temporary Retaining Wall System

The Tensar® Temporary Retaining Wall System is the lower cost alternative to traditional temporary grade separation solutions including sheet pile or soldier pile and lagging walls. Proven in heavy load applications, Tensar Temporary Walls are ideal for traffic maintenance; staged or phased construction, including bridge improvements and road-widening projects; and construction of surcharge load cells. They’re constructed with welded wire forms which provide facial stability during placement and compaction of fill material. And like all of our Grade Separation Solutions, Tensar Temporary Walls are reinforced with Tensar® Geogrids. Manufactured from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), this polymeric grid is inert to chemical degradation and can be used with a variety of backfill materials.


In addition to their lower cost components, Tensar Temporary Walls are quick and easy to install, requiring no skilled labor or heavy lifting or pile-driving equipment that is expensive to use. Likewise, they’re easy to remove or can be left in place and buried in phased construction. Either way, Tensar Temporary Walls reduce overall project costs.
