Wall & Slope Systems

Wall & Slope Systems

Solution Overview

Wherever vertical separation is needed between adjacent finished ground levels on a project, the higher level must be supported either by an earth retaining structure or by sloping the ground betweenNaturally stable slopes take up a large footprint which is unavailable for development and may not be feasible due to space constraints. Earth retaining structures – either vertical retaining walls or steep reinforced slopes can be constructed, with a greatly reduced footprint, to support the higher level platform. 

Tensar offers a range of TensarTech Earth Retaining Systems for retaining walls and steep reinforced soil slopes.  They have many advantages over alternative retaining systems such as reinforced concrete or masonry walls. They are faster to construct and considerably cheaper to build with a lower carbon cost. 

Aesthetically Solutions  

TensarTech Earth Retaining Systems have a choice of faces to suit local design codes, budget, environmental constraints and aesthetic requirements. TensarTech Slope systems can have a ‘green’ naturally vegetated face to enhance the local environment, while TensarTech Wall Systems have face options that include moulded panels, smooth or rought textured blocks or natural rock fill. 

Financially Attractive Solutions 

The modular construction of TensarTech systems requires no large cranage or specialist on-site skills. In many cases the structural fill can be site-won material, suitable waste such as mine spoil or recyled aggregates. Each system allows rapid and economical construction. Staged construction is easily accomodated enabling flexible programming and reducing overall construction times. 

The Strength Within 

Tensar is the industry leader in soil reinforcement solutions. We've developed products and technologies at the forefront of the geotechnical industry for more than three decades. Our products are backed by the most thorough quality assurance practices in the industry. And we can provide full engineering and construction support, including detailing, design, site assistance, and review of stamped drawings for each of our grade separation solutions.

How does Tensar compare to the competition?

Tensar's wall and slope systems offer flexibility, resilience, and cost savings that alternative mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) systems and reinforced concrete retaining walls can't provide.
