NAUE Steel T system for reinforced slopes and reinforced walls

NAUE Steel T utilises the primary reinforcement of Secugrid® geogrids combined with temporary effective steel-skin facings in enveloped forms to create a reinforced soil construction system that can adapt to numerous slope angles and shapes while supporting vegetation. Plantings are possible on the face of NAUE Steel T on slopes up to 70°.

For steeper slopes, special vegetation measures and irrigation systems are generally necessary. Secutex® nonwoven geotextiles or Secumat® erosion control mats provide slope face erosion control. The NAUE Steel T system for reinforced slopes and reinforced walls enables considerable design flexibility, thus allowing adaptation to project-specific requirements and wall shapes while being highly economical, quick to construct, and aesthetically attractive with a natural, green face.

NAUE Steel T reinforced slopes and reinforced walls applications

  • Landslide, slope and embankment restorations
  • Slope stabilisations up to 70°
  • Vegetated slopes with gradients between 45° and 70°
  • Retaining wall structures up to 90°
  • Road and rail noise barriers

Advantages of NAUE Steel T

  • Permanent stability even up to 90°
  • Green solution
  • High load capacity
  • Variable spacers allow site-specific slope face adjustment
  • Quick and easy construction
  • Site soils (including cohesive soils) can be used
  • Extremely economical, due to the ability to utilise more-affordable cohesive soils rather than dispose of or replace them 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

  • Secugrid® geogrid reinforcement
  • Secumat® erosion control mat and/or nonwoven Secutex® geotextile
  • Fasteners
  • Hydroseeding
