NAUE-m3-GABION-HEAD-K

The NAUE GABION system utilises Secugrid® geogrids to create
reinforced earth structures with gabion fronts. Secugrid® geogrids are
installed between the gabion layers and anchored in the soil. The system
is highly flexible for design and installation, adjusting to
project-specific soil requirements and geometric shapes. This
flexibility maximises project economics and aesthetic options. Depending
on site needs, the erosion stability of the soil placed on the
reinforcing geogrid construction can be ensured by the installation of a
Secutex® filter geotextile behind the gabion layers. Slope inclinations
up to 90° are possible.

Applications:

  • Retaining walls of all kinds
  • Embankment constructions
  • Bridge abutments
  • As a replacement for concrete gravity walls
  • Road and rail noise barriers
  • Soil pressure absorption systems

System Components:

  • Secugrid® PET geogrid reinforcement
  • Gabion baskets
  • Depending on the project, Secutex® nonwoven geotextile

Advantages:

  • High load capacity
  • Quick and easy to construct
  • Flexible exterior designs and configurations
  • Gabion walls can be shaped to special corners and layouts (e.g., rounded)
  • Site soils and stones may be used
  • Secugrid® geogrids can be used with soils stabilized with cement or lime
  • Enables attractive aesthetics through selection of different stone types and sizes
  • Aesthetic selections can include historical stone
