Soil erosion can result in serious consequences to landscapes and structures when built on unstable soil without a protective design process.
It is very common to see embankments, riverbanks, and other land formations deteriorate due to erosion under the effect of strong winds, heavy rains, water flows, and gravity. In most cases, these deformations of a large mass of land present a serious risk for loss of life and infrastructure nearby.
Our teams are often called upon to advise about possible measures to restore damaged infrastructure and stabilize potentially failing slopes with our MSE walls for erosion control. But these tragic events could have been prevented if the issue had been anticipated earlier and planned to establish erosion control mechanisms. By working with our engineers, it is possible to put preventive measures in place that control the effects of erosion by protecting superficial layers and reinforcing the overall mass.
The durability of our precast concrete wall facing of MSE walls for erosion control provides excellent protection against erosion of embankments and shorelines. The mechanical connections used for our MSE walls for erosion control like GeoMega® ensure that the facing will remain intact and stand up to the force of water, flooding, and wave action during the entire service life of the structure.
