Retaining structures


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.
