The potential applications for geosynthetic-reinforced soil (GRS) systems are every bit as wide-ranging as the systems themselves. When used in retaining structures, e.g. retaining walls, or for slope stabilisation, they perform a supporting and protective function. They also facilitate the construction of steep slopes and extra-steep slopes.
Reinforced soil system applications are often complex and challenging. Our engineers will provide you with support in the development of innovative and, above all, economical solutions.
Not only do GRS-based slope stabilisation measures and retaining structures offer enormous structural stability and short construction times, they also surpass standard solutions through their wide-ranging design options, e.g. plantable steep slopes, gabion walls and concrete-panel or block facings. HUESKER will be glad to advise you on specific applications, such as noise bunds, avalanche protection dams, bridge abutments or even retaining walls in water, and to partner you in identifying the best solution.
