Retaining Wall

Soil Panels (RS)

The Reinforced Soil (RS) version, is used where new embankments are being created or built up, or for creating level areas on otherwise sloping sites. In this case the Soil Panel is connected to the reinforcing membrane within the rolled and compacted soil block. As in the soil nailing system the Soil Panel cage provides the structural support to the reinforced soil block and allows filling with top soil or stone as appropriate to the particular application.
Additionally Soil Panel provides excellent protection to structural elements from accidental impact or fire damage, as well as protecting any geosynthetic fabrics which may have been used as the reinforcing element in the soil block, from U.V. light exposure. These advantages are not available in other systems.
