Customer projects are always great examples of the wide range of uses for our gabions. Like this project right on our doorstep in the beautiful Eifel region, a support structure between Niedermanderscheid and Pantenburg.
With Delta Green, slopes up to approx. 70° can be permanently and securely fixed. This was also the case in this construction project, where the greened steep slope element was constructed on the basis of monotecR® grids individually manufactured according to the customer’s wishes, but the basic function of Delta Green was kept:
Spot-welded steel wire grids with zinc-aluminum coating (95% zn, 5% al) were used for the elements with a length of 200 cm, a wire thickness of 5mm and a mesh size of 10×10 cm. In addition, geogrids from TENSAR were used to stabilize the slope. This resulted in a visible area of approx. 120 sqm, which blends in wonderfully with the Eifel landscape.
Another benefit: Thanks to the inwardly bent and welded eyelets as well as locking rods, the monotecR® grid is the ideal basis for a structure without dangerous wire protruding – important for a publicly accessible path with direct public traffic.
The slope protection project was carried out by Gotthard Lehnen GmbH & Co. KG.
