Reinforced soil structures

A solution to help widen road or rail corridors

Cost-effective and sustainable schemes to optimise minimal available land space when creating new infrastructure. Reduces the need for removing in-situ materials or importing new materials.

Use Enkagrid G and PRO to provide internal stability for the soil mass within reinforced steep slopes. Enkamat or HF wovens can provide vegetation support and micro stability of the facing soils. Establishing vegetation ensures the finished structures blend into the environment.

Blockwalls are an economical and aesthetic alternative to traditional mass concrete and steel shaped retaining structures. Working with Enkagrid reinforcement, Enkadrain secures the dry constant soil parameters to further increase the structure's stability.

our solution

Create steep slopes

  • Allows for building steep slopes up to 1:1 on narrow surfaces.
  • Internally stabilises structures with tensile strength being mobilised by the self-weight of the soil and surcharge loads.
  • Accommodates high surcharges.

Cost-effective re-use of materials from site

Cost-effective re-use of materials from site

  • Allows for re-use of site-won materials, reducing the need for importing new material.
  • Correct drainage increases structure stability.
  • Cost-effective.
Reinforcement, drainage, stability and appearance
  • Apply Enkagrid reinforcement for soil slopes up to 1:1, noise and sight bunds, vehicular parapet walls and bridge abutments.
  • Depending on the structure and project-specific needs, choices for facings include layered reinforcement and either a wrap-around or integral mesh facings, concrete blocks or thin concrete panels. When required, use Enkadrain to address drainage.
Functions
  • Reinforcement.
  • Drainage.
