NAUE m3 System Clamp

The NAUE CLAMP Secugrid® geogrid system combines high-strength
reinforcement with additional erosion protection for embankments, earth
structures and steep slopes at inclinations up to 50°. NAUE CLAMP
includes the vertical installation Secugrid® primary reinforcement
geogrid and e.g Secumat® erosion control mats, secured with U-shaped
clamp fasteners. This arrangement is filled with vegetation-supporting
topsoil and may be used in conjunction with fast-establishing hydraulic
growth mediums, such as hydroseed. NAUE CLAMP secures both temporary and
permanent slope constructions, and the systems strength allows for
significant flexibility. Project-specific requirements and unique slope
geometries and vegetation are possible in a single, economical, natural-
looking system.

Applications:

  • Dams and levees
  • Slope and embankment restoration
  • Embankment reinforcement

System Components:

  • Secugrid® PET geogrid reinforcement
  • Secumat® erosion control mat
  • Fastening clamps
  • Vegetation, such as through hydroseeding

Advantages:

  • Permanent stability even on slopes up to 50°
  • Guards against slope failures and landslides
  • Quick and easy to construct
  • 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 cement- and limestabilized soils
  • Ecological benefits associated with the use of local soils include
    decreased transportation pollution (and cost) and conservation of
    natural resources
