NAUE Wrap the system for reinforced slopes and reinforced walls

The NAUE Wrap Secugrid® geogrid system for reinforced soil structures like reinforced slopes and reinforced walls utilises Secugrid® in wrapped, reinforcement envelopes at slope fronts. Temporary formworks, such as wood piles, are used in the site preparation and construction process. Mechanical protection of the high load-bearing capacity of NAUE’s Secugrid® reinforcement technology is secured by the installation of Secumat® erosion control mats or Secutex® nonwoven geotextiles. These measures protect against erosion of the soil.

NAUE Wrap is highly adaptable to project-specific requirements and geometries, which leads to an economical, aesthetic solution capable of supporting vegetation. Slope surfaces at angles up to 70° can be vegetated. Additional UV protection can be provided through the installation of facing stones or other adequate materials.

NAUE Wrap applications

  • Reinforced Vegetated slopes between 45° and 70°
  • Retaining walls up to 90°, in combination with a panel facing

Advantages of NAUE Wrap

  • Permanent stability even on slopes up to 90°
  • One source/system for all reinforcement needs
  • Natural, green-faced constructions
  • Conserves construction resources and costs, as site formworks can be reused
  • Simple construction
  • High load capacity
  • 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 soils stabilised with cement or lime
  • Variable spacers allow site-specific slope face adjustment
  • Ecological benefits associated with the use of local soils include decreased transportation pollution and cost and conservation of natural resources
