Highways

Terram standard, non-woven geotextiles have been used for over 40 years in the construction of highways, car parks, haul roads, access roads, hardstandings, container port terminals and other loaded areas. These filter/separators maintain the integrity of the sub-base by preventing movement of subgrade particles into the sub-base.

The Terram PW range of geosynthetics provides the Permanent Way Engineer with established solutions for extending track life by preventing ballast contamination.

Whether it's a simple filter/separator (PW1), a filter/separator with a more robust performance (PW2) or a filter/grid reinforcement composite (PW4-LA) for track construction over weak ground.

Landfill

Terram Robust Geotextiles (RG) range gives protection to containment geomembranes by preventing puncture by adjacent stone.

The grade specified will depend upon the size and angularity of stone used and the depth of waste bearing down on the geomembrane via the stone.

Ground & Grass Reinforcement

Plastic pavers and mesh products are ideal for constructing stable, natural-looking areas for vehicular and pedestrian traffic. These products ensure that soft grassed areas remain healthy and are able to recover from damage to the crown. Alternatively, the products can be used with gravels to provide a hard landscaped effect.

Foundation & Retaining Structures

Terram geocells are interconnecting, permeable cells which, when filled with site-won materials or imported fills, form ground stabilisation platforms and gravity retaining structures. They also provide a terraced facing for reinforced soil structures which provides an environmental-friendly appearance.

Pipelines / Utilities

Flexible Mesh products applied in major pipeline projects replace the thick sand collar that would traditionally have been required as a cushion to a steel pipe's coating. The mesh prevents stone in the backfill from abrading and puncturing the pipe coating which would otherwise interrupt the cathodic protection system.

Coastal & Waterways

Terram Robust Geotextiles (RG) are thick, robust filters used below rock armour and pre-cast concrete revetment systems to ensure underlying soils are not leached out by tidal action and are far simpler to install than the traditional layers of graded stone.

The Growing Need for Geosynthetics

Within the construction and landscaping sector the use of geotextiles has become fundamental in solving an increasingly diverse range of global geotechnical and environmental problems.

Terram is a market leader in the design and manufacturer of innovative geosynthetics including geocomposites, geotextiles and geocells. Through a programme of continuous product development, Terram provides a unique range of value-engineered solutions that also help minimise the environmental impact of construction.
