Geotex Solutions for Erosion Control & Slope Reinforcement
The primary cause of slope and embankment erosion is both constant and ever changing; the climate.
This is why long lasting, reliable prevention methods are required to combat and control ground abrasion and attrition.
Fortunately, several environmentally friendly solutions are available to replace traditional stone filter layers.

In many circumstances, a standard geotex membrane will provide adequate protection from erosion, particularly in coastal locations. Natural vegetation will assist with erosion control, but plants don’t offer the same kind of resilience on slopes and gradients. For this reason, we recommend a layer of 100gsm Non-Woven for installation under a bedding of stone. The tough fabric and stone combination topped with a ‘rock armour’ . Resists the hydraulic reverse flows which ruin the bank stability with dynamic erosive force.
ecogrid permeable paving
The world leader in porous paving products offers a high quality prevention method against embankment erosion.
Utilising the patented interlocking connection system EcoGrid. It can be swiftly laid and, for steep gradients, secured into the ground with steel J-Pins. We recommend using a layer of non-woven geotex membrane underneath the EcoGrid to provide reliable weed prevention.
Thanks to its compact cellular design the permeable paving grid is suitable for various infill materials. Such as turf or gravel, but always consider the type of installation and gradient. Once filled, it will provide extra protection against erosion.
These are just examples of what we can offer. However, we are happy to work with clients to exact a solution for any slope reinforcement problem.
