Of the Hilfiker systems, the Welded Wire
Wall is the most economical and adaptable to a variety of
site conditions. Welded wire mats are used to reinforce
the soil, providing the tensile strength to make the compacted
soil into a stable structure.
The face of the wall can either
be designed as battered, vertical, or cantilever walls;
left exposed, vegetated, or covered with a concrete
skin or blown mortar (gunite).
Hilfiker was the first manufacturer
to incorporate the wall face and soil reinforcing
mechanism as one unit. The reinforcement mats "stand
alone," and are ready to backfill once in place. Unlike
competitors' products, they require no extra external
bracing or internal supports.
