NAUE Panel system for reinforced walls and bridge abutments

When embankments are planned with angles exceeding 70°, a vegetated face is usually not possible or requires significant and potentially cost-prohibitive work. These situations require harder exteriors and high-strength reinforcement, but aesthetic, economical facings are still possible. The NAUE Panel system for reinforced walls and bridge abutments provides high-strength reinforcement to earth structures and walls and utilises precast concrete panels for exterior design flexibility.

Secugrid® reinforcement geogrids are installed between or connected to the facing elements. NAUE Panel is characterised by a high degree of design options, making it adaptable to project-specific requirements, different wall geometries and attractive aesthetic faces while being extremely cost-effective and quick and easy to construct. Walls and slopes can be built to 90° angles.
