Specification

Inorex® is a facing system for soil block reinforced with geosynthetic material.

It consists of:

  • galvanized steel mesh forming the outer part of the facing,
  • special anchors installed at the appropriate spacing between successive layers of a reinforced soil block, and at the same time fixing the steel mesh facing,
  • stone for filling of the space between the steel mesh and the reinforced soil block.

Description

Reinforced soil technology in retaining structures allows flexibility of facing selection. The key factors determining its type are: wall height, function, load, but also the location of the construction site (seismic zone, landslide zone, subsoil). The availability of local materials for construction should also be taken into account, including backfill of material from the excavation, as well as stone used as the facing of the structure. It has a significant impact on both ,the reduction of investment costs and the acceleration of construction works as well.

Inorex® System allows staging of the construction works, which is particularly important for areas where subsidence is predicted and defined. In the first step, a reinforced soil block can be build to the full designed height incl. anchors for installation of facing elements. This structure is self-stable, so you can wait until the expected subsidence will occur. After they stop, the second step is to construct the facing – install the steel mesh and filling with stones.

The mesh size of the steel truss can be adapted to the dimensions of the locally available  stones. Inorex® System anchors ensure quick and uncomplicated installation. Due to the large range of adjustment of the anchoring elements, it is possible to properly shape the facing element, which secures proper inclination of the facing, what has a direct impact on the aesthetics of the future object.

Advantages:

– easy and quick construction using locally available materials,

– possibility of staging construction works (reinforced soil block / stone cladding),

– recommended in seismic and landslide areas, the flexible facing compensates small settlements and deformations.

Applications:

– retaining walls and noise barriers.

– ramps and access roads to engineering structures,

– bridge abutments.
