Securemesh system – Reinforced soil retaining structure
The Securemesh system is one of the systems used in the construction of reinforced soil retaining structures. Reinforced soil retaining structures are executed by combining the embankment behind the front side of the retaining structure with tensile elements such as geomesh, hexagonal mesh, traps, etc. This type of structure is stable thanks to the interaction of tensile elements and the surrounding backfilled soil. The front side of the structure serves an aesthetic purpose and prevents local erosion, but does not significantly contribute to the overall stability of the structure as a whole.
The construction of retaining structures using Securemesh systems and other reinforced soil systems has significant advantages:
- Height of retaining structures made using reinforced soil can exceed 50.0 m.
- Possibility of filling with excavation material.
- Resistance to significant settlements and displacements (flexible structures).
- Possibility of greening the front side (aesthetically acceptable solution).
- Speed and ease of execution.
