Piano Wall ™ REINFORCED EARTH ®

MSE Wall System

Piano Wall™ is a combination precast traffic barrier


and Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) retaining
Traffic Barrier wall. The lower portion of each unit serves as the
precast concrete facing for the MSE wall and the
Roadway upper section serves as an integral Jersey-type
traffic barrier.

Typical Section simultaneously
The primary components of a Piano Wall
are full height precast composite MSE
wall/traffic barrier units and alternating
layers of granular backfill with high
adherence, linear metallic soil reinforcing
strips.

The strength and stability of a Piano Wall


is derived from the frictional interaction
between the granular backfill and the
reinforcements, resulting in a permanent
and predictable bond that creates a
unique composite construction material.
