Green Walls & Steep Slopes

ArmaGreen & ArmaStone

Reinforced Earth offers vegetated or mineral reinforced steep slopes using ArmaGreen or ArmaStone for the construction of road and rail infrastructure, airports, land development, industrial facilities, waste management and hydraulic works.

Built as earth retaining structures, slopes are constructed to an angle to horizontal typically between 45° and 76°. These reinforced soil structures are commonly referred to by engineers as Reinforced Soil Slopes (RSS) or Geosynthetic Reinforced Slopes (GRS). Terre Armée’s success in this field has led to solutions that have reached a world record-setting RSS structure being built to a height exceeding 100m.

Mineral facing

ArmaStone is an engineered solution for reinforced soil slopes which require an attractive mineral look, either to mimic the surrounding natural environment or simply to provide pleasing aesthetics for urban and peri-urban infrastructure.
