Road embankments at road and highway intersections are typically used to hold back the weight of a retaining wall. It is important for such sloped backfill to remain in place, to prevent the weakening of these retaining walls by earth pressures. In order to prevent soil erosion at embankments, the soil layer needs to be reinforced while also allowing for vegetation to grow so as to keep the surface of the embankment intact.
Thrace Group Erosion Mat (PP5NW) offers excellent soil reinforcement, while its 3-dimensional construction enhances the growth of vegetation.
- Protection from sudden settlements
- Decreased soil losses
- Maintaining road structure until repair measures are taken (in case of damage)
