DYWIDAG High Strength Active Mesh System

Superior slope face restraint.

The DYWIDAG High Strength Active Mesh System is a flexible slope protection mesh that can be used for stabilization of both cuttings and embankments. This is an active mesh system which can be tensioned upon installation by recessing the bearing plates within the face and torquing the nuts. Active restraint enables superficial instabilities to be supported to a greater depth within the slope face. 

The mesh offers a high level of corrosion resistance using Zn-Al with additional corrosion inhibitor for long-term durability in a range of different environments. Other options include stainless steel options for aggressive environments and an integrated erosion mat comprising non-woven monofilament fibres.

The chain-link configuration of the mesh enables fast installation and ensures the mesh follows the contour of the slope. The large roll width of 3.9 meters ensures large coverage per roll and less seams between each mesh panel.

  • 3mm high tensile steel wire (1770N/mm²) with a tensile strength of 150kN/m width enables high levels of face restraint to be provided

  • Knotted ends at vertical edges ensures full strength of the mesh is achieved across the full width of each panel

  • Excellent durability and corrosion resistance in a range of different environments  

  • Large coverage based on standard roll sizes of 3,9 x 30 meters

  • Low visual impact (based on 3mm wire)

  • Available as open mesh or with integrated erosion mats


  • Mesh can be supplied with an integrated erosion mat comprising non-woven monofilament fibres.

  • Stainless steel (inox) option available for aggressive environments, eg. coastal protection works.

  • Range of bearing plates and spike plates, with angle compensation, available to suit different applications. 

  • Border ropes, shackles and turnbuckles available for use with the above meshes.

  • Mesh clips for seams and rope clips for border ropes are offered as standard.
