TerraLink and TechWall
There are two methods of connecting the Reinforced Earth wall to the existing structure or slope to form a shored retaining wall, either a direct connection, or a frictional link which incorporates soil reinforcement attached to the existing structure or slope which then overlap with the reinforcement from the new structure, the overlaps between the reinforcements ensure the frictional connection on both sides of the structure.
TechWall is a precast counterfort retaining wall system engineered to site specific requirements, this enables the most efficient use of materials and reduction in costs. TechWall can be designed using state of the art numerical analysis to produce the thinnest panel sections thereby increasing the surface area which can be delivered, wall units can be supplied up to 12m high.
Thin wall sections reduces the carbon emissions in the manufacture and transport of materials.
