retaining wall Applications

  • Retaining Wall Construction

    Problem: Retaining Wall structures are growing ever more necessary as construction is forced to deal with rough terrain, steep slopes, and embankment reinforcement. Changes-in-grade present obstacles for roads and other development requiring flatter, more usable land. Most current types of retaining walls are made of cast-in-place, steel-reinforced concrete walls whose virtue is based entirely upon its internal strength and rigidity. However, these cantilever walls are expensive, vulnerable to cracking from high...

  • Geotextiles solutions for road construction industry

    Geosynthetics offer cost-effective, long-term solutions where conditions impose severe restrictions on road construction - where subsoils are poorly drained, or where the subgrade consists of cohesive, saturated and/or organic soil. Geosynthetics have also radically changed the way embankments, retaining walls, steep slopes, and even tunnels and bridges are constructed.

  • Flood defense systems for Erosion control

    Because of the soil filled nature of our barriers and the ability to achieve a variety of vertical or pyramid stacked configurations, we have a number of erosion control applications we are commonly used for. Applications include: Soil stabilization, Retaining walls (can be self-anchored with 90 degree tie-ins), Riverbank protection, Toe protection, Wetland restoration, Beach protection.

  • Geogrid for MSEW

    BOSTD Geogrid MSEW design software is used to design these structures that are built of BOSTD uniaxial geogrid, fill materials a facing panel system and drainage. Fill materials can be from local sources eliminating high transport costs, Construction techniques often only require labour and simple machinery, The overall project cost is normally significantly less than traditional reinforced concrete structures. The structure is flexible and can better adapt to foundation deformation due differential settlement...

  • Environmental protection solutions for the recreational trails

    Finding economical and low-maintenance solutions to stabilize trails and greenways to protect against surface wear and erosion can be difficult. It is even more challenging in poor soils or environmentally-sensitive areas where minimal disturbance is desired. Presto Geosystem’s solutions meet these challenges by offering long-term stability, permeability, and low environmental impact options for pedestrian, equestrian, bicycle, ATV and other vehicle access. The Geosystems’ solution-set is ideal to...

  • Geotextiles solutions for retaining structures areas

    In infrastructure projects in which space has to be saved or land acquisition minimized, TenCate Geosynthetic soil reinforcement technology has been used in the design and construction of steep slopes or walls. The use of this technology increases the stability of such structures.

  • Environmental protection solutions for the mining industry

    GEOWEB geocells offer a better “solution set” to soil stability challenges for accessing sites over soft ground, controlling and containing stormwater, protecting geomembranes for basins, tailings, and heap leach pads, and reclaiming slopes at the time of closure. Through 3D confinement and strengthening of infill, less material—even on-site waste rock—may be used. GEOWEB solutions offer increased speed of operation, lower maintenance, safer installation, and a lower total cost of ownership.
