This system is similar in concept and construction to the Welded Wire Wall,
with the addition of either precast full-height fascia panels, or a cast-in-place [CIP] finish.
For CIP, as the wall is erected form anchors are installed in the correct size and pattern to
accommodate the desired form system and pour rates. Upon completion of the wall and any settlement
period that may be required, the reinforcing steel and forming system are erected utilizing
previously installed form anchors, then the 6"-8" thickfascia is poured and stripped. For Precast,
typically two connection brackets are provided at the top of each panel. The completed wall will
have the appearance of a non-proprietary cast-in-place wall utilizing virtually any architectural
treatment that may be desired. This system is typically utilized in applications where you may
encounter poor foundations causing differential settlement within the wall or in an application
that may require a special or full height-architectural pattern without horizontal lines. The
ERS can also just be treated with a blown mortar [shotcrete] finish. The ERS offers the contractor
all of the advantages of “Two-Stage” construction.
