GEOSYNTHETICS FOR REINFORCING SLOPES & RETAINING WALLS
Geofabrics offers a range of engineered slope and retaining wall solutions used to construct infrastructure projects.
For slopes over 70 degrees, Maccaferri Gabions can accommodate significant differential settlement. The mesh baskets form a monolithic structure that acts as one homogeneous unit, which is permeable and suitable for use in high stress hydraulic applications.
For reinforced slope systems and mechanically stabilised earth walls Maccaferri Terramesh is a versatile, modular system that can be a more cost-effective solution than the mass gravity Gabion wall because of the speed of installation and reduced rock fill requirements.
For mechanically stabilised earth slopes that require a vegetation the front face of Maccaferri Green Terramesh can be filled with soil and planted, creating a green wall.
How Geofabrics can help with reinforcing slope and retaining walls:
- Developing temporary and permanent measures to reinforce slopes and encourage revegetation in the harshest of conditions.
- Improved surface stability of mild slopes, water courses and spillways
- Large height retaining walls
- Protection of workers and assets from instability of rock faces
