soil reinforcement Applications
Need to increase the stability of your embankment? TenCate geosynthetics reinforce the shear stresses of the fill material leading to an increase of the foundation bearing capacity.
Problem: Poor load-bearing soils pose a significant problem for transportation and construction needs. Unpaved areas, such as access roads, paths, parking lots, driveways, etc can be highly vulnerable to near-surface shear failure and rutting, especially in moist conditions or areas with higher expected loads. Typically, engineers bridge over weak soils with rigid structures such as thick, reinforced concrete for roads and highways. However, such techniques are prohibitively expensive and inordinately difficult to install. The poorer the quality of the sub-base and the heavier the expected loads, the greater the amount and better the quality of support required.

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.
TenCate Geosynthetics deliver solutions that enhance the performance and design life of transportation engineering structures for paving. From our complete product line for Roadway and Railway Construction System Solutions, we offer materials that function for sealing, stress relief, adhesive bonding, and soil reinforcement. They offer robust mechanical properties coupled with high water flow capabilities that extend pavement life by retarding reflective cracking, waterproofing and reinforcing asphalt pavements.
Nilex’s engineered erosion control and sediment control products reduce the damaging effects of rainfall, wind and wave action on soil structures while replacing or reducing the dependency on scarce natural resources.
Geosynthetic erosion control products are designed to reduce damaging effects of rainfall, run-off, and wave and wind action on soil structures by redirecting water flow or acting as a barrier between the soil surface and water.
Nilex Erosion Control systems include: Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs); Turf Reinforcement Mats(TRMs); Gabion systems; Concrete Revetment and Mattresses; and Cellular Confinementsystems.
Properly implemented sediment control practices can result in minimal soil loss, little damage to
off-site receiving channels, enhanced project aesthetics and fewer complaints from regulators and the public.
Nilex Sediment Control systems include: GeoRidge Bio; Silt Fence; Turbidity Curtains;SedimentSTOP and Wattles; and Water Inflated Dams.
