Slope stabilisation

All different types of slope stabilisation is designed and developed by our committed employees.

The slope stabilisation method "back-anchored wooden supporting wall", which we developed and is protected under patent law, has been successfully used in the past for the most difficult embankment stabilisation measures and the most sophisticated slope traversals in steep terrain.
