    Embankment protection


Hyson Cells offers the following solutions for embankment protection

When the slope is NOT stable

When the slope is not stable in its own right then it must be

  • stabilised by providing a Hyson Cells with in-situ fill gravity mass retaining wall to support the toe, or
  • the face may be stabilised by using steps constructed from layered Hyson Cells with in-situ fill

The face of the slope may then be additionally protected as follows

When the slope itself is stable

The slope surface may be protected by

  • Vegetative cover planted in Hyson Cells
  • "Mock rock" constructed using Hyson Cells
  • Vegetated No-fines Concrete in Hyson Cells
  • "Soil / cement" (also known as soilcrete, sandcrete, ashcrete) in Hyson Cells
  • Concrete armouring in Hyson Cells
