Did You Know?
Abutments, where the bearing seats (spread footings) rest directly on the Reinforced Earth® structure are known as “True” abutments. True Reinforced Earth® abutments are a superior and often more economical solution in cases where poor foundation soils might otherwise dictate use of deep piles or other remedial foundation treatments. Because of its flexibility, a Reinforced Earth® abutment can withstand considerable settlements arising from consolidation of the foundation soils.
