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.

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.

Terramesh System used as strong and stable solution for precarious site
Terramesh System & Road Widening; without verges
A technically challenging Terramesh System project in one of the most scenic locations in Scotland, Peebles, alongside the River Tweed.
The A72 in the Scottish borders connects to the River Tweed as it passes Dirtpot Corner, at Peebles. The highway was very narrow which was a problem for road users causing congestion. Large vehicles had to stop to pass each other, which subsequently damaged the existing walls that bordered the highway.
The Scottish Borders Council decided to widen the highway by approx. 3 metres and started a 10 month contract to start the work in August 2018. The low height retaining wall and revetment slope to the river needed to be replaced, plus the construction of a new barrier would improve safety in line with current standards.
Steep slopes and the river being below the road caused project challenges in that there was a lack of space to construct a new wall, and there were no verges either.
A hybrid reinforced soil structure was designed by MHB Consultants to retain the highway yet minimise the impact on the surroundings. The structures height would be 6m and would run 150m along the River Tweed.
Maccaferri’s technical support was used alongside Albion Drilling which enabled MHB to design a tied-back gabion and Terramesh reinforced soil structure. Maccaferri supplied and constructed the Terramesh System.
Scottish Borders Council also placed an environmental clerk of works on the project who monitored and minimised the impact of construction works on the local environment.
The £2.2m scheme is complete, we have lots of photos and videos. In order to check out our footage of various projects etc and further news, follow us on Twitter.
