TenCate Miramesh® biaxial geosynthetics have been used successfully on MSE walls and slopes providing an alternative facing to hard armor concrete and masonry block facing. Miramesh® may also be used under permeable pavers and channel blocks as a separation layer below the units or to separate dissimilar aggregate layers. The unique benefits of Miramesh® geosynthetics allow it to be used in many civil engineering applications based on the project needs. TenCate Miramesh® woven mesh geosynthetics are highly flexible, supportive of vegetative growth, can provide instant green grass look, UV Stable, and have long-term durability.
The original Miramesh® geosynthetic, Miramesh® GR is composed of green high-tenacity monofilament polypropylene yarns that are woven together to produce an open mesh geotextile. It provides an instant green face prior to vegetation growth and is UV coated to provide 75 to 100 year design life for permanent MSE wall face and slope face.
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.
Composed of black flame retardant high-tenacity monofilament polypropylene yarns, Miramesh® FR is a fire resistant biaxial mesh facing that protects 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.
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.
