KeySystem II and KeySystem III have been designed to the highest standards and unique requirements of the transportation sector. Both wall systems are comprised of dry-cast concrete Keystone Compac® modular units* and NTPEP-evaluated TenCate Miragrid® XT polyester geogrid soil reinforcement by TenCate Geosynthetics. The patented Keystone Compac, a leading commercial retaining wall product, features an open core design and a pin connection system.
