TenCate Geosynthetics introduces synthetic grass face biaxial geosynthetic for green slope applications

TenCate Miramesh® SG combines the TenCate Miramesh® GR biaxial geosynthetic with synthetic grass green fibers to produce a finished grass face for steepened slope applications, without the need for natural vegetation. By eliminating the need for topsoil infill it immediately creates a finished vegetated face. Synthetic grass fibres provide an extra layer of UV-protection doubling the long term resistance, therefore increasing stability.

Director of reinforced markets, Fred Chuck explains: “Our new TenCate Miramesh® provides surface erosion protection and secondary reinforcement. The erosion protection facilitates the establishment of vegetation and provides structural support for the forming of over-steepened slopes. The secondary reinforcement facilitates compaction and helps prevent surficial sloughing at the slope face”.
