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 liner, 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.
With TensarTech GreenSlope, it is made simple to find the complete solution from just one source, thanks to our team of experienced engineers.
