Retaining structures


Retaining walls and vegetated steep slopes - system drawings 

In infrastructure projects in which space has to be saved or land acquisition minimized, TenCate Geosynthetic soil reinforcement technology has been used in the design and construction of steep slopes or walls. The use of this technology increases the stability of such structures. Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) is typically used in such applications as:

  • Retaining walls and steep slopes
  • Bridge ramps and abutments
  • Barriers to protect against avalanches and rockfalls
  • Noise protection bunds

Our TenCate solution is your benefit as:

  • you achieve costs savings
  • you can adapt your facings and cater for any visual requirement
  • you can reduce your carbon footprint
