The ARES Retaining Wall System is a fully integrated, mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) system.
The ARES Retaining Wall System is a fully integrated, mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) system. Its precast panel facing units feature a slotted connection that assures full load transfer to the reinforcing geogrids with no loss of reinforcing strength.
The ARES system, which utilizes non-metallic earth reinforcement, is inert to chemical and electrical corrosion, making it especially suited to areas where salt, stray electrical current, or chemically active soils are a concern.
The standard ARES panel is larger than those offered by most other systems; with fewer panels to install at any given site, contractors save both time and labor costs. Yet, the ARES forms can also be easily modified when an owner's needs require smaller, narrower panels. More importantly, the ARES System tolerates differential settlement with a panel design that accommodates movement between adjacent panel columns without compromising structural integrity.
