Green & Stone Walls ArmaGreen and ArmaStone

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. Built as retaining structures, steep slopes between 45o to 76o can be vegetated (ArmaGreen) or have mineral finishes. Often known as reinforced soil structures or geosynthetic reinforced slopes, a record of 112m has been achieved with these systems.

ArmaGreen is an engineered solution for reinforced soil slopes that require promotion of natural vegetation. This sustainable solution provides optimized “green” integration in natural or peri-urban landscapes.  Built as retaining structures, steep slopes between 45o to 76o can be vegetated or have mineral (ArmaStone) finishes. Often known as reinforced soil structures or geosynthetic reinforced slopes.

Product Features

A versatile and easy to build system. Steel mesh faced systems have prolonged design lives and with BBA and EPD certification on specific  soil reinforcements. The general buildability is fast and once the first layer of mesh has been places work is done safely behind the front face of the wall, eliminating the need for scaffolding and reduces the footprint at the base for general working environment. Marginal fill materials and even site won can be utilised depending on the chosen solution, reducing costs even further and overall carbon footprint.
