Retaining structures

Applications

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.

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.
