Earthen slopes are naturally susceptible to erosion due to gravity, water and surcharge loads. Slope failure can lead to unsightly conditions, landscape and property damage, and costly repairs. The GEOWEB Slope Protection System protects soil slopes against erosive forces and can be counted on to last the lifetime of the project. For slopes that are steeper than 1:1, earth retention structures are usually necessary. GEOWEB Retaining Walls make it possible to stabilize soil at the face of wall or slope with a naturally-vegetated fascia. The GEOWEB 3D system stabilizes slopes and can be used to support roads, highways, and bridge structures in cost-effective and unique applications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the causes of slope surface erosion and how they lead to slope failure
  • Learn how the GEOWEB system can protect against erosive forces
  • Understand fundamentals of different types of earth retention structures with the GEOWEB system
  • Learn about the distinguishing features of GEOWEB Walls and what sets them apart from other types of walls

Presto Geosystems partners with engineers and designers to solve challenging soil stabilization problems with the original 3D geocell system—GEOWEB. Fill confined in the versatile HDPE 3D structure remains stable under the heaviest loading to deliver economic benefits in a variety of applications. Construct roadways and shoulders with onsite fill, control erosion on steep slopes and shorelines, design channels to resist all hydraulic conditions, build naturally vegetated retaining walls with a longer-life, low environmental impact solution. Presto Geosystems offers free project evaluations, an easy spec building tool, free licensed MSE wall design software and over 35 years of experience in markets ranging from general site construction to mining, oil & gas, railroads, wind, and green building.
