|Since the invention of the Reinforced
Earth® technique at the beginning of the 60’s, several soil reinforcement
options have been developed in close collaboration with research laboratories
and universities all over the world to provide clients with safer, more
durable, environmentally conscious solutions and to give the right answer
to fit to the characteristics of each project.
By offering a range of discrete reinforcement types, either metallic or geosynthetic, Reinforced Earth companies can customize each client’s project for maximum structural, environmental and cost efficiencies.
Terre Armée provides 2 types of reinforcements:
- Galvanized steel reinforcements
- Geosynthetic reinforcements
Galvanized steel reinforcements
These are the perfect solution for high static and dynamic design loads and the only sensible choice for high-end structures such as very high walls, bridge abutments, heavy duty mining ...
These have become an efficient solution when the chemical characteristics of the select backfill or the environmental conditions are not suitable to the utilization of galvanized steel.
We distinguish 2 types of geosynthetic reinforcements:
- GeoStrap® reinforcements
- EcoStrap™ reinforcements.
