BLOCK AFIWALL - mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining wall - AFIWALL


The construction of infrastructure sometimes requires working on very steep slopes. The AFIWALL® range offers various simple and rapid construction methods which provide a variety of solutions to complete these structures.

For slope reinforcement, mechanically stabilised earth (MSE) retaining wall with vertical facing or facing at a slight angle, bridge abutments or acoustic bunds, the AFIWALL block technology is used whenever concrete facing is needed.

This solution consists of three products:

  • a specifically designed reinforcing geosynthetic such as NOTEX® C in the event of aggressive granular backfill upon installation or NOTEX® GX or GEOTER® F in most traditional cases
  • a drainage geocomposite such as SOMTUBE® FTF to combat water ingress in the technical embankment
  • modular concrete blocks such as BETOATLAS® or LEROMUR®


  • Innovative and cost-effective solution consisting of 3 products supplied by AFITEXINOV for the reinforcement, drainage and lining of the structure
  • Construction of very high retaining structures
  • The modular concrete facing replaces the construction of traditional walls
  • Quickly implemented
  • Looks different depending on the type of modular block used
  • Better integration into the landscape
