Miramesh®

Biaxial Geosynthetics

Miramesh® biaxial geosynthetics provide surface erosion protection and secondary reinforcement in MSE structures.

TenCate develops and produces materials that function to increase performance, reduce costs and deliver measurable results by working with our customers to provide advanced solutions. TenCate Miramesh® geosynthetics provide surface erosion protection and secondary reinforcement in MSE structures. The erosion protection facilitates establishment of vegetation and provides structural support for the forming of battered and vertical face MSE walls and oversteepened slopes. The secondary reinforcement facilitates compaction and prevents surficial sloughing at the slope face.

The Difference Miramesh® Biaxial Geosynthetics Make:

  • Strength: Biaxial strength to provide uniform design strengths and facilitate one layer installation for secondary reinforcement and face erosion protection.
  • Vegetation Support: Vegetation testing shows Miramesh® geosynthetics perform better than biaxial geogrids and geotextiles in providing a suitable platform for plant growth. The uniquely designed aperture construction allows for retention of soil particles, while encouraging vegetation growth.
  • Flexible: Easily conforms to the slope or wall face to provide a stable platform vegetation.
  • Color:  Available in green and black color.
  • Design Life: Available in 75 to 100 year permanent design life exposed to sunlight

Miramesh® TR

Miramesh® TR is a black mesh facing offering high biaxial tensile strengths with standard UV protection offering economical facing before vegetation growth. Miramesh® TR may act as a temporary or permanent face wrap based on the MSE structure type.

 Miramesh® SG

Miramesh® SG has a synthetic grass face, combining Miramesh® GR biaxial geosynthetic with synthetic grass green fibers to produce a finished grass face without the need for vegetation. The synthetic grass fibers provide an extra layer of UV protection, increasing the long term exposed design life. Miramesh® SG provides an immediate finished vegetated face eliminating the need for topsoil, grass seed, plantings, irrigation and maintenance.

Miramesh® FR

Miramesh® FR is a fire resistant biaxial mesh facing to protect the MSE structure from damage in case of exposure to flames such as wildfires. The fire protection coating meets NFPA – 701 and California State Fire Marshall fire resistant ratings.

Miramesh® GR

Miramesh® GR is a green mesh facing to provide an instant green face prior to vegetation growth. It is UV coated to provide 75 to 100-year design life for permanent MSE wall face and slope face.

Erosion Protection

The use of an erosion control blanket (ECB) or turf reinforcement mat (TRM) to protect the soil surface and prevent soil particles from being detached by rainfall, flowing water, or wind.

Soil Reinforcement

The synergistic improvement of a total system’s strength created by the introduction of a reinforcing geosynthetic (that is good in tension) into a soil and/or aggregate system (that is good in compression but poor in tension).

Confinement

The ability of a geosynthetic to restrain lateral movement from a soil or aggregate through friction or mechanical interlock.
