Steep slopes and embankments create numerous challenges both during construction and long term. Although they are necessary for efficiency of land use, you may find yourself dealing with problems due to one or more of the following:

  • Erosion due to over land flow
  • Lack of healthy vegetation
  • Poor drainage
  • Over steepening

TerraFirm® Anchoring Systems offers a unique mechanical stabilization solution for many steep slope challenges featuring:

  • Fast and easy installation
  • Stabilization without excavation
  • Wide variety of surface protection options
  • Easy design load calculation
  • On-site assistance
  • Low environmental impact

TerraFirm® Applications

Erosion Control
TerraFirm® anchors and surface mats provide a long-lasting solution to many erosion control challenges. Surface protection materials may include: Biaxial geogrids, TRMs, biodegradable blankets.

Shallow Slide Repair
TerraFirm
® anchors are driven beyond slip surfaces to re-stabilize replaced soil layers and surface mats permit re-vegetation of the slope.

Cut Slope Stabilization
TerraFirm® anchors are driven beyond slip surfaces to re-stabilize replaced soil layers and surface mats permit revegetation of the slope.

Pipe and Tank Buoyancy
Buoyancy of buried objects can be a real challenge in situations where the water table is located near the object. To resist buoyancy, the weight of the structure empty has to exceed the weight of the structure if its volume was occupied by water. TerraFirm® anchors provide a cost effective, fast and easy solution to buoyancy uplift issues for buried pipes and tanks.
