An improved engineered solution over classic hand placed bagwork or concrete bagwork.

The Mattwork Retaining Wall System is fabricated from constant thickness (220 mm thick) mattress fabric joined to a hessian fabric front. Each layer is pump filled with a highly fluid micro concrete (C28/35), temporarily held in place during filling with cable ties to the netting. The hessian is made from natural fibres that will decay over time to leave a plain concrete finish.
