GEOLIGHT®, a solution for lightweight embankments

The advantages of using lightweight embankments instead of standard embankments become obvious in areas with compressible soil types, subject to landslides, or behind supporting structures. The use of GEOlight® limits the loads applied to the surface of the foundation ground and improves the structure's stability while reducing ground deformation.

Embankments on soft soil

The use of ultra lightweight honeycombed structures as a lightweight embankment on soft soil stabilises the embankment

Embankments on slopes

On unstable slopes or in areas subject to landslides, the use of a lightweight embankment is a good solution for stabilising the slopes.

Embankments on underground pipes

A lightweight embankment can be used to reduce the weight over a nozzle, ducts or an underground work
