Geoquest offers engineered products for Slope Retention to retain the masses in situ and prevent erosion and shallow landslides. This system is designed on a site to-site basis.
Depending on the site characteristics and strength requirements, a large variety of net and netting products are available. Rectangular netting products are developed for low to medium strength applications. It can be used for stabilizing slopes by pinning them with a combination of mesh and rock or soil anchors, as well as installed as a drape to control erosion. Thus, the frequency and magnitude of events such as rockfall and shallow slumps can be reduced.
Re-stabilization of the slope using mesh and natural vegetation is highly encouraged. Furthermore, netting can accommodate pre-existing vegetation such as tree trunks with minimal effort.
