Title (EN) CONTINUOUS CHAMBER MASS CONFINEMENT CELLS AND METHODS OF USE THEREOF
(FR) BLOCS DE CONFINEMENT DE MASSES A CAVITE CONTINUE ET LEUR UTILISATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to mass confinement cells that may be used in retaining walls and earth retention systems that has a natural earthen appearance or other aesthetic design and is resistant to damage and wear caused by the environment. The mass confinement cells are generally light-weight and include a continuous chamber that at least partially aligns with confinement cells positioned above and below, thereby allowing the intermingling of fill material between adjacent cells. The mass confinement cells are capable of accepting and retaining any type of filling material. The filling material provides weight, stability and security to a retaining wall constructed of such mass confinement cells.
(FR)L'invention porte sur des de blocs de confinement de masses pour murs de soutènement ou systèmes d'épaulement de terres, présentant l'apparence naturelle du sol ou d'autres aspects décoratifs et résistant aux dommages et à l'usure causés par l'environnement. Lesdits blocs sont légers et comportent une cavité continue pouvant s'aligner au moins sur les blocs placés au-dessus ou au-dessous, ce qui permet le panachage de tout type de matériau de remplissage dans des blocs contigus. Le matériau de remplissage procure le poids, la stabilité et la sécurité nécessaires à un mur de soutènement construit avec de tels blocs.
