How Flex MSE Works?
Flex MSE is a Patented engineered solution for vegetated retaining walls and erosion control.
Flex MSE Bags and Interlocking Plates are used to build naturally resilient Geomodular structures.
A unique soft building material which exhibits hard material qualities, Flex MSE is a retaining wall system that gets stronger and greener as time goes on.
Flex MSE is a Patented system with a design life of over 120 years that leverages Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) principles along with geotextile technology to create strong and easy to install Geomodular block structures that can be planted.
Building With Flex MSE
Flex MSE Bags are:
Filled with sand and organics
An ideal “planter block” for many types of vegetation
Water and root permeable
Flexible enough to create almost any contour or angle
Flex MSE Plates are:
Made from 100% recycled material
Designed to bridge the gap between Bags to create an interlocking mechanical connection
Engineered with Friction Strips for greater Bag to Bag mechanical connection and Geogrid hooks to connect to soil reinforcement

Benefits of Flex MSE
Flex MSE cuts installation times
Flex MSE walls can be installed in up to 50% of the time that it takes to install a conventional retaining wall.
Flex MSE is cost effective
The all in cost for Flex MSE walls are generally 40-50% less than other systems. Savings in machine, labour, material and transportation costs make Flex MSE an obvious choice for helping generate project cost savings.
Flex MSE walls are easy to construct
Professional contractors can install Flex MSE using our straightforward installation methods.
Flex MSE is ideal for a wide variety of applications
Flex MSE works seamlessly with utilities and landforms and integrates perfectly with other building materials and systems.
With a 120 year design life and 75 year warranty, lifetime costs can be up to 25% of conventional systems.
Flex MSE encourages biodiversity, owing to its ability to support a broad range of plants.
