Terram Geosynthetics are extensively used in civil engineering in the construction of highways - from preventing intermixing of sub-base and subgrade layers, control erosion on cut slopes, for roadside drainage, as part of SUDS projects for infrastructure access and in the construction of retaining walls, bridge abutments and steep slopes.

Grass and gravel surface stabilisation

Constructing stable grass and gravel surfaces for trafficking
There are many products and techniques for increasing the stability of low-load-bearing ground but most have been developed with paved areas in mind. It is only in the last thirty years or so that the demand has grown for unpaved solutions.

It is possible now to construct green roads and car parks which are not only pleasing to the eye but retain their appearance and continue to perform when other non-engineered alternatives are worn and unattractive.

TERRAM solutions are predominantly grassed though there is one, BodPave 85TM with an option to use gravel instead of grass. All solutions are porous which means they are source-control compliant for SUDS installations.

The products have been developed with different trafficking requirements in mind. The demand can vary from occasional foot traffic to frequent, heavily-loaded vehicles so it’s important to deal with a company who can supply the full range of solutions rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.
