Nilex offers various innovative Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) and Reinforced Steepened Slope (RSS) systems for grade-separation challenges. These engineered solutions provide clients with an array of possibilities with respect to aesthetics and facing inclination, allowing for the most cost-effective use of land while achieving maximum architectural and environmental value. We offer proven economical alternatives to traditional grade-separation building materials and practices that incorporate high-performance geosynthetic products and High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) soil reinforcement systems.

Nilex MSE systems can be designed to address technical challenges such as potential for differential settlement and seismic activity, heavy loading and non-standard backfill materials. Our dedicated MSE Division specializes in the delivery of MSE systems of all types in all market segments. Our MSE systems include reinforcement, facing and drainage materials, design and support services.
