DYWIDAG High Strength Heavy Mesh

Additional strength for demanding slope protection applications up to 250kN/m.

The DYWIDAG High Strength Heavy 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. A higher level of active restraint enables deeper-seated failures within the slope to be addressed. 

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 such as marine applications.

The chain-link configuration of the mesh enables fast installation and ensures the mesh follows the contour of the slope. 

  • 4mm high tensile steel wire (1770N/mm²) with a tensile strength of 250kN/m width provides higher levels of face restraint

  • 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

  • •The high strength of mesh enables use with rock restraint systems


  • 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.
