Properly designed and constructed Flex MSE structures provide a very low maintenance solution. However, as with all building systems, a regular inspection and maintenance routine is suggested.

Flex MSE is a second generation technology that leverages existing revolutionary soft armour systems to create a superior solution. This soft armour segmental systems allows for construction of permanent slope, wall and shoreline protection installations while creating full vegetation of the wall face. No concrete, no rebar, no forming, and often no levelling pad are needed.

Flex MSE consists of only two components – a proprietary non woven polypropylene (PP) geotextile Bag, and an engineered recycled PP Plate. The Flex MSE Creep Resistance Plate mechanically connects to the vegetated Bags, creating a structure with great strength, flexibility, and sustainability.

Installation Guidelines

It is recommended to inspect the structure annually and after any major climatic or seismic event. It is also recommended to keep a photo record, showing the application from similar view points for year-to-year comparisons. Annual inspection reports should ideally include Structural and Aesthetic components, along with any additional criteria recommended by the Engineer or Designer.

Structural Inspection:

• Bulging: are there any localized areas where Flex MSE Bags seem to be bulging out of the structure? It may be necessary to trim vegetation cover for a closer inspection.

• Rotation: Flex MSE can be safely constructed to many slope angles in the same install; note if there are noticeable changes in the face slope angles at the time of inspection from the slope angles at completion of construction.

• Excessive water flow through the Flex MSE structure: the system allows for superior drainage, however excessive water flowing through the structure, especially at localized areas should be reviewed for cause. Often the solution is as simple as auguring through the face and inserting a perforated pipe to relieve the hydrostatic pressure in the wall.

• Differential settlement of the structure: the Flex MSE system allows for significant differential settlement, but always confer with the Engineer of record regarding the stability of any wall experiencing differential settlement.

• Ripped or damaged Bags: Due to Flex MSE’s capacity for differential settlement, Bag Fill medium loss from single Bags is not a grave concern. Repair by sewing, stapling or replacing or re-apply vegetation through Live Planting or spot seed mulch application.

The Engineer of Record should be notified of any significant irregularities, so they may evaluate the cause and recommend any need for remedial action.

Vegetation Inspection and Maintenance:

At six months, if complete coverage of the Flex MSE Modular Bags has not occurred it is recommended to consider the following remedial measures:

• Irrigate: Vegetation may need water; spray, soaker, or drip irrigation is advised.

• Fertilize: Vegetation may need nutrients; liquid fertilizer is recommended.

• Re-apply Vegetation: Pay attention to particular varieties that did well, and the method of failure. Occasionally quick germinating plants can stifle slower perennial varieties.
