The TerraTrel® technology is used to construct temporary or permanent retaining walls for steep slopes or vertical walls which can be adapted to look more natural in the environment.
The TerraTrel® walls are constructed in a very similar way of Reinforced Earth® except they use steel mesh cladding panels.
The main elements of the system are the backfill. The reinforcing elements are galvanized steel strips which are placed horizontally in the soil block to withstand horizontal soil pressure in order to maintain a stable body. The cladding is backed by rock material which in turn is backed by a geofabric. A green surface may be provided by hydro seeding method.
