GEOSYNTHETICS FOR EMBANKMENTS
When constructing embankments over soft ground there is often a risk of foundation failure if the shear strength of the foundation material is exceeded.
Geofabrics provides a range of soil reinforcement solutions including Solmax Mirafi PET woven geotextiles which can be placed at the base of the embankment to improve stability whilst reducing settlement timeframes.
Embankment stabilisation products such as Maccaferri ParaWeb enable soils to accommodate greater loads and stand at steeper angles.
For mechanically stabilised embankments that require a vegetation, the front face of Maccaferri Green Terramesh can be filled with soil and planted to create a green wall.
How Geofabrics can help with embankments:
- Extensive experience in developing temporary and permanent soil reinforcement measures
- Ensure the structural integrity of foundations
- Reduce time required for settling of soil
