Reinforced earth system DEBION® TERRA

Reinforced earth is a composite body consisting of excavated earth and a reinforcement system made of wire grids. The reinforcement can consist of a wide variety of materials - depending on the occupancy. Due to the ecological construction, a reinforced earth construction blends particularly harmoniously into the landscape and offers a extremely long-lasting protection in the area of embankments and slopes as a natural support structure.

Benefit from the DEBION® TERRA advantages

  • Long life of the reinforced earth system
  • Simple construction concept with fast construction time
  • Less space required on the construction site
  • Angle of inclination up to 90° possible
  • Potential savings compared to concrete solutions
  • Cost efficiency through the use of local excavation
  • Increased protection against erosion of the reinforced earth
  • Landscape harmonious solution
  • Eco-friendly construction
  • No heavy construction machinery needed

Project-related grid systems from WDM Deutenberg — for an extra long lasting life.

WDM Deutenberg manufactures your project-related DEBION® TERRA grids from zinc-aluminum material with a resistance of 6,000 h in the salt spray test. Usually the eyelet grids are produced with a grid size of 50x100 / 100x100 mm and a grid length till 3,000 mm.

DEBION® TERRA with rod on inner angle

Grid system plug rod

With this version, we supply you with DEBION® TERRA eyelet grids made out of individual parts with Ø 6.0 mm rods and spacers for the inner angle.

The planned angle is determined by you on site by connecting the eye grids. Benefit from a space saving and flexible system.

DEBION® TERRA ready folded on inner angle

Grid system edged

With this version, we provide you with already bent DEBION® TERRA eyelet grids with Ø 6.0 mm rods and spacers for the inner angle. The required interior angle is specified by you when you place the order. We produce the grids according to your specifications. With your reinforced earth project on site, you benefit from a quick construction time and a simple assembly.

Usually a DEBION® TERRA element always consists of:

  • 1 x front grid 5.0 mm
  • 1 x bottom grid 4.5 mm
  • Plug-in rods
  • Spacers

Our quality features

  • High zinc-aluminium coating > 350 g/m²
  • Zinc-aluminium coating approx. 95% zinc / approx. 5% aluminium
  • Salt mist spray test > 6,000 hours according to DIN EN ISO 9227
  • Wire tensile strength > 500 N/mm²
  • Shear strength > 75% of the tensile strength of the wire according to DIN EN 10223-8

In order to ensure the durability and lasting stability of our gabion grids, they are regularly tested by a approved institute. In addition to a CE marking of our gabion grids, we apply a quality management certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015.

Our material properties

  • Wire: Ø 4.0 - 8.0 mm
  • Plug-in rods: Ø 6,0 mm
  • Spacer: Ø 5,0 mm / Ø 6,0 mm

Deviating from the materials and thicknesses usually used, we are flexible in the design of the reinforced earth grid and can also produce other mesh sizes, wire thicknesses and qualities - such as hot-dip galvanized or made of stainless steel.

With our DEBION® TERRA grids, we expand your on-site services such as geoflies, static verifications and greening with a robust and durable gabion base and thus contribute to the success of your reinforced earth project.
