Geowalls are retention structures using different geosynthetic products including geotextiles and geogrids. These systems are used to create steeper slopes than by methods with conventional materials. The use of these technologies gains space and minimizes footprint while ensuring increased security. Reinforced geowalls are available for berm angles of 45°, 60° and 85° with stone or green facades. Certain wall concepts can also act as sound attenuation barriers.
The SierraScape system is a geowall combining the use of metal wire mesh, geogrids and geotextiles. Depending on the design and building criteria, this type of system can generate savings of 30 to 60% compared to traditional concrete walls while being just as sturdy and resistant to wear over time. Available in different versions, SierraScape walls can have facade angles of 45°, 60° and 85° with rock or green facades. Drainage and installation quality are determining factors when it comes to the durability of this type of works.
Temporary geowalls are structures combining the use of metal wire mesh, geogrids and geotextiles to create walls with facade angles ranging from 45° to 85°. Compared to the conventional SierraScape system, design and construction criteria are less stringent to reduce costs in consideration of the limited lifespan of this type of works. This type of wall is generally used during the construction of permanent works to retain soil and create access or bypass roads.
Our gabions are weaved metallic screen baskets filled with rocks on site. This type of geowall is commonly used in the construction of structural walls for the protection of slopes and banks against erosion. Gabions are generally of square or rectangular shape but can also take the form of a mat.
