The Reinforced Soil Embankment (R.S.E.) Panel Wall is one of Hilfiker’s original precast panel systems and lends itself to a variety of architectural treatments, as well as a smooth finish, which will meet most any specification requirement.
The standard RSE/Smooth Face precast concrete panel is 25 square feet (5' long by 5' tall). This, combined with the cantilever footing at the back of the panel, allows accelerated construction rates as well as improved compaction at the wall face. The soil reinforcement mats are connected with a single pin to an anchor embedded in the panel.
Special panels have also been manufactured to accommodate wall requirements, varying from 1.75' to 6.0' in height.
