Reinforced embankments

Need to increase the stability of your embankment? TenCate geosynthetics reinforce the shear stresses of the fill material leading to an increase of the foundation bearing capacity.

Our soil reinforcement geosynthetics achieve a greater, quicker stability of embankments allowing

  • optimum height over a minimum area
  • steeper side slopes
  • resistance to outward movement of the embankment
  • security of areas at risk of subsidence.

In case of critical deformation restrictions or in applications where survey is required,TenCate GeoDetect® can be installed in order to monitor the reinforced embankment. 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.

The following techniques are used in reinforced embankments:
