A stable, reinforced soil mass, with durable steel units positively linked at the face using a high efficiency bodkin connection is created from horizontal layers of Tensar’s uniaxial geogrids. During installation, this facing is lined with an erosion mat, which aids in the retention of a thin topsoil veneer and establishment of the vegetation cover, with a choice of continuous slope or terraced face structure to provide allowance for irrigation. Self colour steel facings are normally employed for a 60 year design life, with galvanised facings available for a 120 year design life.
A combination of savings of up to 75% over conventional earth-retaining methods with an attractive, completely natural look, TensarTech GreenSlope offers a perfect solution for embankments and steep slopes up to 70º, particularly in environmentally-sensitive areas. For slope angles less than 45º,the TensarTech NaturalGreen system is recommended.
