DuraSlope – Reinforced Soil System

The DuraSlope system is for slopes up to 45º, utilising primary structural geogrids for internal stability of the slope.

The DuraSlope system will often incorporate a permanent Turf Reinforcement Mat (TRM) laid over the slope surface to prevent erosion and promote vegetative growth at the face.

Reinforced soil walls, also called Mechanically Stabilised Earth Walls (MSEW), are becoming increasingly popular as an economical and effective solution for steepened slopes and retaining walls.

Each DuraSlope reinforced soil system component is individually selected and engineered to work together to provide a structurally sound long-term solution. All structural elements are manufactured to strict ISO 9001 procedures and quality assurance data is available to the engineer as required.

Cirtex® can provide design support using the latest slope reinforcement and MSEW programs. Cirtex also provides plans and methodologies in CAD format customised to suit your project. This is available either as a concept service free of charge or as a complete service with producer statement provided. Some costs would be incurred if a producer statement is required.
