MACCAFERRI are a global company who dramatically changed civil engineering´s landscape after inventing Gabions 140 years ago. Our highly-specialised professionals are trained in designing and developing complex solutions in the civil engineering, geotechnical and environmental construction markets. We do not simply sell products we strive to be the leading technical reference for design and development in advanced projects and are strongly committed to solving our clients´problems. Today we are the undisputed leader in the manufacturing and supply of gabions and associated wire mesh products to the global construction industry.
Our solutions start from the design phase of the project with the simple aim of solving a problem and proceed through all the stages of development - manufacturing, designing and installing solutions and end with a close-knit, multi-level integration result.
Environmental protection is an essential factor for us and we are ethically engaged. Maccaferri´s solutions are better as we design and develop them with an eye on quality of life and on preserving the environment and our communities for future generations. We have always stood out for the reliability, transparency and professionalism of our management while abiding by all pertinent laws.

Biomac blankets are used for surface erosion protection and provide immediate protection to vulnerable slopes to the effects of erosion such as wind, rain and surface run off and placed onto topsoiled and seeded slopes.
FlexMat DT is used as a rapid deploy barrier for flood protection raising embankments and providing buttressing suppport for temporary works. The mesh is reinforced with vertical steel rods and internally lined with a non-woven geotextile sleeve.
Maccaferri Gabions are cages which are engineered from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh with numerous uses and are typically used to form flexible, permeable and monolithic structures such as retaining walls, channel linings, hydraulic control structures and erosion protection. Maccaferri Jumbo Gabions are used on large scale civil engineering products and identical in concept to our regular gabions. Our gabions can also be used for streambank stabilization, restoration and erosion products.
Green Reef and Greensonic are a new concept of noise barrier. Both systems support numerous plant species which can suit the particular enviornment in which the barrier is to be placed.
Maccaferri have a broad range of drainage geocomposite for geosynthetics drainage systems, are efficient and can be applied to several situations.
Our MacGrid are deformed or non deformed grid like polymeric material formed by intersecting ribs joined at the junctions. The fundamental working mechanism is by friction. In the extruded grids a confining effect over the soil particals that lodge in the openings of the grid itself can be taken into account.
MacMat are made of synthetic material filaments to form a highly deformable layer and can be used on slopes, along the banks of canals and river courses.
MacLine is a very low permeability bituminous geotextile membrane liner or barrier.
Terramesh is an environmentally friendly modular system used to form vegetated faced soil reinforced slopes and embankments.
Maccaferri MacRes system has been developed to create vertical concrete faced soil reinforcement structures. It is used extensively in infrastructure, mine works and anywhere that requires a vertical faced structure capable of resisting high loads.
Maccafferri MacWall is a segmental blockwork retaining wall system. Segmental block retaining walls are increasing in popularity due to their ease of construction, cost-effectiveness and versatility.
Our Reno Mattresses are units manufactured from double twisted hexagonal woven steel wire mesh and are divided into uniformly portioned cells. The Reno mattresses are filled with stones at the project to form flexible, permeable, monolothic structures such as river bank protection and channel linings for erosion control projects.
Maccaferri Road Mesh is planar grid material used for the structural reinforcement of asphalt pavements and provides lateral restraint to the asphalt, improving resistance to rutting and extending fatigue life, minimising disruption through pot-holes and resurfacing works.
Maccaferri Rockfall Barriers are designed to catch falling rocks and boulders before they fall onto infrastructures or other developments. They are supplied in a kit form with all components (except ground anchors).
Maccaferri Steelgrid is a high strength steel geocomposite with exceptional stiffness and mechanical durability of high tensile steel cables.
Maccaferri Terramesh System is a modular system used to form rock faced reinforced soil walls and embankments and has been used globally on some of the most significant infrastructure schemes.

Gabion Terramesh® Retaining Wall used for Motorway Service HGV parking expansion
Gabion Terramesh® retaining wall for site running beyond capacity
A Gabion Terramesh® Retaining Wall System has been constructed at a motorway service station situated in Cobham, Surrey.
The Cobham Motorway Service Area (MSA) is located at J10 of the M25 motorway. The site opened in 2012 and is a single site used by traffic in both directions. The service area currently contains a customer service building with restaurants and refreshment areas, retail facilities, a gamezone, toilets, showers, pay phones and cash machines. This building is located in a central position to the southern end of the MSA away from the motorway.
It is necessary to expand the heavy goods vehicle (HGV) parking as the site has been extremely popular and runs beyond capacity. The lack of parking space has resulted in the lorries parking on the slip roads and access roads into the site, causing congestion and safety concerns.
The proposal was to increase the parking numbers by 79 new spaces, to the west of the petrol filling station (PFS). The proposal sits into the ground to aid functionality and reduce its visual impact, retaining the slopes with gabion walls. Tree planting and earth modelling will suit the current surrounding landscape.
A mixture of gabions for smaller heights and Gabion Terramesh® for larger heights was the chosen solution for value engineering purposes. The site consisted of a 300m wall up to 5.5m high and a 100m wall 2m high.
Gabion Terramesh® is a modular gabion-faced soil reinforcement system. Each unit comprises a gabion fascia unit and an integral factory-fitted soil reinforcement geogrid. The strength, length and spacing of the geogrids is dependent on the design of the structure which is sized to restrain the forces applied to it by the retained soils and the surcharge loads.
A design, supply and install by Maccaferri Construction with Breheny as the main contractor. Elliot wood were the design engineers for Extra MSA Group who were the main client.

Maccaferri - New educational facility in Northern Ireland
Maccaferri’s technical team designed and supplied six retaining walls for new campus
The new Foyle College, Ebrington Primary School and Nursery, formerly the Clooney Army Base located in Derry, Northern Ireland.
Now completed, this £27 million project constructed by Heron Brothers includes school buildings, teacher accommodation and sports facilities including pitches.
Maccaferri designed six retaining walls that were required across the site to retain the various sports pitches and facilities as well as supplying material needed for construction. The total works was in the region of 2500sqm.
MacWall vertica 4 degree ‘anticlimb’ segmental block retaining wall system was used to construct all walls located across the 38 acre site. The walls reached a maximum height of 5m spanning lengths of up to 195m long.
Maccaferri were able to showcase the versatility of this system and its ability to facilitate the location of drainage systems and networks in and around the walls by using a combination of the Paragrid geogrid reinforcement and lean-mix concrete back fill.
The ‘Anticlimb’ nature of these blocks also allowed for the creation of a near-vertical finish with an inability to be scaled.
Environmental benefits with this design included the reuse of material from site as structural backfill, eradicating the need to purchase and transport additional material to site or remove waste materials from the site.
