Terre Armée has forged an unrivalled level of expertise and experience in reinforced backfill applications and soil-structure interaction. Our technical solutions are defined by three main functions corresponding to the purpose of the structure to be designed:
RETAIN, CROSS, PROTECT.
Our flagship technique, Reinforced Earth®, is based on the principle of the friction between soil and reinforcements creating a permanent and predictable bond. At the origin of all mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls on the market today, we are continuously perfecting this simple, yet ingenious technique. Discover the advantages of Reinforced Earth®.
TerraLink™ is our adaptation of the original Reinforced Earth® technique. Where conventional length of of reinforcements are not possible due to space limitations, linking the Reinforced Earth® system directly to an existing structure creates a structurally sound shored retaining wall. Learn more about how TerraLink™ mechanically stabilized earth walls can benefit your project.
A precast retaining wall system, TechWall™ combines the advantages of counterfort with the quality and effectiveness of precast concrete. A great fit for sites with soil bearing capacities allowing for shallow foundations, TechWall™ can also be combined with piling solutions to accommodate different types of soil. Sustainable, cost-effective, and quick to install, TechWall™ may just be the ideal solution for your project needs. Discover.
Resulting from decades of research and development, TechSpan® is a buried precast concrete arch system designed to accommodate high fills, heavy live loads, and alternating loading conditions. With a small footprint and easy and quick to install, TechSpan® is ideal for mining, industrial, and railway applications, it is gaining popularity in many different markets.
