Reinforced soil slopes and steepened slopes system NAUE Clamp

The NAUE Clamp Secugrid® geogrid system combines high-strength reinforcement with additional erosion protection for embankments, earth structures and steepened slopes at inclinations up to 50°. NAUE Clamp includes the vertical installation Secugrid® primary reinforcement geogrid and e.g. Secumat® erosion control mats, secured with U-shaped clamp fasteners.

This arrangement is filled with vegetation-supporting topsoil and may be used in conjunction with fast-establishing hydraulic growth mediums, such as hydroseed. NAUE Clamp secures both temporary and permanent slope constructions, and the system strength allows for significant flexibility. Project-specific requirements and unique slope geometries and vegetation are possible in a single, economical, natural-looking system.

NAUE Clamp applications

  • Dams and levees
  • Slope and embankment restoration
  • Embankment reinforcement

Advantages of NAUE Clamp reinforced slopes up to 50°

  • Permanent stability even on slopes up to 50°
  • Guards against slope failures and landslides
  • Quick and easy to construct
  • Site soils (including cohesive soils) can be used, which optimises project economy since more-affordable cohesive soils can be used rather than disposed of or replaced with non-cohesive soils
  • Secugrid® geogrids can be used with cement stabilised and lime stabilised soils
  • Ecological benefits associated with the use of local soils include decreased transportation pollution (and cost) and conservation of natural resources

System components for this reinforced soil slope system

  • Secugrid® geogrid reinforcement
  • Secumat® erosion control mat
