NAUE STEEL T

NAUE STEEL T utilizes the primary reinforcement of Secugrid® geogrids combined with temporary effective steel-skin facings in enveloped forms to create a reinforced earth 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 system 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.

Applications:

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

System Components:

- Secugrid® PET geogrid reinforcement
- Secumat® erosion control mat and/or nonwoven Secutex® geotextile
- Fasteners
- Hydroseeding
- Steel (permanent) formwork, such as steel mesh

Advantages:

- 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 noncohesive soils
- Secugrid® geogrids can be used with cement- and limestabilized soils
- Ecological benefits associated with the use of local soils include decreased transportation pollution (and cost) and conservation of natural resources
