Embankments on Soft Soil

Straightforward reinforcement and stabilisation of embankment base

The actual embankment construction operations are preceded by preparatory works to the embankment base. HUESKER's Stabilenka reinforcement fabric, a woven geotextile with tensile strengths of up to 2,800 kN/m, ensures the safe accommodation and distribution of vertical embankment loads and lateral spread. The use of Stabilenka as soil reinforcement speeds up operations, shortens waiting times for subsoil consolidation and allows maximization of the slope inclination during construction.


  • Ensures global and local stability of embankment structure

  • Fast, single-layer installation of woven geotextile thanks to high tensile strengths

  • Shorter construction times due to rapid subsoil consolidation

  • Steep slopes even during construction, resulting in lower base widths and savings on fill material

  • Accommodation of differential settlement

  • Also suitable for highly alkaline soils

  • Stabilenka (PET) and Stabilenka Xtreme (PVA)

  • Only reinforcement woven with BBA certification
