The Sierra® Slope Retention System, a premier reinforced soil slope (RSS) retention system, was introduced by Tensar International Corporation in 1982. The Sierra Slope Retention System is a complete and fully integrated mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) system.

Each mechanical component has been designed to work together for optimum efficiency in a variety of challenging site and loading conditions. Sierra Slopes are implemented for steep, rough terrains and in areas with extensive coverage.

The Sierra Slope Retention System can blend naturally with the surrounding environment while maximizing land for development and can be vegetated with native plants and ground cover.
