Retaining walls

The installation of high-strengthTenCate geosynthetics in layers considerably increases the stability of earth structures and controls the deformation. Geosynthetic reinforced retaining walls allow a variety of facing options. These include treated timbers, segmental concrete blocks, wrap-around and vegetated facings, gabions, pre-fabricated concrete elements, wire baskets and natural stone to provide superior aesthetics versus conventional cast-in-place concrete walls.

In case of critical deformation restrictions or in applications where survey is required, TenCate GeoDetect® can be installed in order to monitor the reinforced structure. TenCate GeoDetect® measures and follows the strain in soil and enables transmission of a warning signal as soon as its elongation reaches a preset limit.

  • Vector wall®
  • R+F Ecowall®

Vegetated steep slopes

The installation of high-strengthTenCate geosynthetics in layers considerably increases the stability of earth structures and controls the deformation. The inclusion of TenCate geosynthetics enables the use of locally available, often poor quality soil. To combine both engineering and landscaping aspects TenCate offers systems forvegetated steep slopes.

In case of critical deformation restrictions or in applications where survey is required, TenCate GeoDetect® can be installed in order to monitor the reinforced structure. TenCate GeoDetect® measures and follows the strain in soil and enables transmission of a warning signal as soon as its elongation reaches a preset limit.
