Arborgreen is proud to distribute the Flex MSE vegetated wall system throughout Australia. Build like concrete, finish like landscaping.
The widely acclaimed Flex MSE vegetated wall system is an innovative patented solution that is a superior alternative to traditional timber, concrete, or block retaining walls commonly used for erosion control.
By harnessing the unique qualities of Flex MSE, a soft building material with the characteristics of a hard material, this engineered system creates strong modular block structures using geotextile technology and mechanically stabilised earth (MSE) principles.
The advantages of the Flex MSE vegetated wall system are numerous and include a significantly reduced installation time compared to conventional walls, requiring only half the duration. Heavy machinery is not needed, further streamlining the process. Moreover, the overall costs of constructing a Flex MSE wall are typically between 40 per cent and 50 per cent lower than alternative systems. This cost-effectiveness is attributed to machinery, labour, materials, and transportation savings, making the Flex MSE system an obvious choice for projects seeking to maximise cost savings.
Installation of Flex MSE can be accomplished by day labourers or professional contractors using straightforward methods.
One of the system’s key features is its ability to accommodate various vegetation types, resulting in visually appealing walls. Grasses, ground covers, flowers, vines, and small shrubs can all be incorporated into the Flex MSE system, enabling the establishment of lush greenery. Additionally, hydroseeding is compatible with the Flex MSE system, providing another avenue for desirable vegetation integration.
The design of the Flex MSE system ensures long-term soil retention and slope stability. Under ideal conditions, the system meets the project design life criteria of 120 years, with full vegetative coverage protecting against UV exposure achieved within 1000 hours of peak UV exposure after installation.
Proven in Australia
Known for its light weight, cost-effectiveness, and sustainable engineering, the Flex MSE system was recently installed at St Joseph’s College in Geelong, Victoria, following an embankment collapse around the oval perimeter caused by adverse weather conditions. The project was a success and exceeded expectations, leading to further considerations for additional Flex MSE installations at the site.
Flex MSE’s versatility allows landscapers to build walls to suit their landscape plan. Builders can install a vegetated wall built with Flex MSE from horizontal to 85 degrees. This adaptability empowers landscape teams to construct walls that align with the project’s evolving needs, including the ability to follow natural landscapes and flow over land formations. The flexibility of Flex MSE eliminates the constraints of right-angle decisions, enabling the creation of organic structures.
The strength of Flex MSE rivals that of concrete upon installation and improves over time as the vegetated face’s root web takes hold.
