Shear Lock® Engineered Slope Retention System

The Shear Lock Engineered Slope Retention System is an innovative and cost effective way to protect slopes from potential landslides and to repair existing landslides.

Shear Lock uses tried and true engineering principles combined with the patented* Shear Lock Piles to quickly and efficiently retain unstable material and ‘lock’ the potential shear failure plane.

Many areas especially around road and rail infrastructure are marked by steep and unstable slopes causing landslides to block the road or rail network during frequent storm events. With the Shear Lock system, the slipped soil can be pushed back onto the slope and compacted into place, then stabilised by installing Shear Lock Piles in a predetermined grid pattern.
