Building natural looking retaining walls and embankment protection

With our Fortrac Nature system models, you can erect vegetation covered retaining walls or embankment protection in a short time, which, when appropriately planted, integrates into the landscape. Compared with conventional construction methods, this natural solution has a positive effect on the urban climate and, if appropriately planted, offers protection for insects and birds. You can use the system for slope and embankment protection with inclines from 30° to steep slopes and steep slopes up to 110°.  Successful, permanent vegetation is usually possible up to an angle of inclination of 70° and should be ensured by a specialist company in cooperation with the planner. Of course, temporary structures and earth pressure vessels do not require any greenery.

System benefits

  • Harmonious integration in natural landscape setting

  • Positive impact on micro-climate

  • High flexibility in terms of inclination, contouring and vegetation

  • Easy dismantling allows use as a temporary structure

  • Long-term stability and durability coupled with ductile behaviour

  • Lateral earth pressure containments of 110° feasible

  • Natural looking solution, providing habitat for birds and insects
