Retaining Walls & Slopes

A collection of vegetated and non-vegetated systems and technologies used in grade separation applications for reinforcement, stabilization, and erosion control.

Uniaxial Geogrids
A specific type of geogrid that provides maximum strength in a singular direction. This style of geogrid serves as a key component in load-bearing structures such as retaining walls or reinforced slopes.

What are Retaining Walls & Slopes?

Sites with grade separation requirements present a number of challenges with an even greater number of potential solutions. Confined construction footprints, limited access, seismic and settlement activity, environmental restrictions and more – all pose significant design, construction and budgetary demands on owners, developers, engineers and contractors. Systems such as retaining walls or reinforced soil slopes offer a solution to each unique application that might present itself.
