Basal reinforcement encompasses embankments over soft soils, reinforced embankments on piles and reinforced embankments over cavities. Reinforced embankments are essentially constructed to hold back water, carry a roadway, and generally create an elevated area of land.

TenCate high strength geosynthetics reinforce the shear tresses of the fill material leading to an increase of the foundation bearing capacity. High strength geosynthetics provide a cost effective solution to achieve a greater and quicker stability of embankments constructed on soft foundations.

Basal reinforcement with high strength geosynthetics allow:

  • Optimum embankment height over a minimum area
  • Steeper side slopes
  • Increase in construction speed with no loss of stability
  • Resistance to outward movement of the embankment
  • Optimisation of load transfer platforms to achieve a greater stability and surface settlement control
  • Reinforcement while preventing the collapse of the structure, ensuring the safety of users
