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.

Salt Barrier

Application Function


Terram Salt Barrier has been specially developed to replace the granular layer and reduce environmental impact.

Preventing the capillary rise of salt water
Terram FSB is similarly effective in preventing the capillary rise of salt water that would otherwise contaminate sweet soil layers capable of sustaining vegetation. 

This geocomposite can be used instead of the tradition 300mm thick stone layer which would have been used in the past. A much more environmental-friendly alternative, particular if stone is not locally available.
