Green terramesh is used in reinforced soil slope for roads, industrial and residential areas. It is a versatile modular system designed to produce a steeply sloping vegetated face. A single length of double twist mesh forms the base and upper reinforcing panels and the facing unit. A bio-degradable or synthetic blanket is installed immediately behind the sloping faces of the unit to control erosion and to promote rapid vegetation establishment. A wedge of topsoil is placed behind and in contact with the blanket to provide a moisture and nutrient reservoir, essential for successful vegetation.
No external support or shuttering is required when installing green terramesh increasing considerably the speed of the installation. A steel reinforcement mesh is factory assembled to provide rigidity to the faces. Soil bioengineering techniques like live staking and brush layering can be used to create a more natural look to the structure.
Advantages of Green Terramesh:
Permeability of the front face, guaranteeing drainage of the backfill
Flexibility, enabling the structure to tolerate differential ground settlement without compromising structural integrity
Ease of construction
Significant soundproofing characteristics (18-28 decibel)
Structural safety in case of fire near the front face
The reduction of environmental impact through the use of vegetation incorporated into the front face of the structure
The versatility of gabions, which allows the formation of a structure with vertical, battered or stepped front face as required and minimization of environmental impact.
Green terramesh is an environmental friendly gabion type used for erosion control for rivers, shorelines and streambanks. They provide immediate and long-term erosion control and create hospitable conditions for plant establishment. Green terrameshs help to slow water velocities near the banks and trap sediment.The integration of the vegetation provides a high resistance and durability of the structure. As the root system develops, it reinforces the soil providing a significant resistance to the structure.
