TensarTech® GreenSlope System
- Naturally vegetated, steep-slope earth retaining system – designed and supplied from a single reliable source
- Creates stable steepened slopes up to 70° batter
- Rapid and economic construction
- A wide range of embankment fill materials can be used; cohesive soils, recycled materials and site-won fill.
When space allows, steep vegetated slopes offer an attractive and lower cost option than vertical earth retaining walls. The TensarTech GreenSlope System is used for construction of stable soil embankments with a slope face angle up to 70°. Cost savings of up to 70% can be achieved, compared to a conventional concrete retaining wall.
The stability of the TensarTech GreenSlope structure is provided by reinforcing the embankment with Tensar uniaxial geogrids placed horizontally within the fill. The slope face is supported by durable steel mesh units positively secured to the geogrid reinforcement using Tensar’s high strength bodkin connection. The facing units are lined during installation with an appropriate erosion mat, to help establish the chosen vegetative cover to the slope face.
