Presto introduced their cellular confinement system, trademarked GEOWEB®, to the civil engineering community in the early 1980's. In the commercial market, these products have expanded to solve nearly an infinite number of problems - from steep slopes, shorelines, channels, and multi-layered vegetated retaining walls, to mining access roads, oil & gas roads, wind access roads, and railroads, intermodal yards & ports, dams and landfills.
Gabions are a box cage-like structure primarily made of steel wire mesh and PVC coated. Used for stabilizing slopes and steams and retaining walls. Our gabions are assembled and then filled with stones at the project site. Gabion baskets are made from high quality steel wire, which is heavily galvanized to provide long-term corrosion protection. An additional protective polymeric coating is also applied for gabions that are to be used in more aggressive environments, or where a longer design life is required.
Tensar® UX Geogrids can carry high tensile loads applied in one direction (along the roll). Used for Mesa retaining wall system, retaining walls and SierraScape Retaining walls system.
Retaining Wall Systems
Used by Excavators and Professional Landscapers retaining walls adapt to challenging site conditions of every kind. Retaining walls are required for sites that feature difficult sloping terrain and where there is a need to maintain maximum develop-able area, or for locations requiring abrupt grade change, such as bridge abutments.
