terastop® is an innovative geocomposite designed to provide robust protection against puncturing and rodent damage. This versatile solution incorporates a resilient metal mesh that effectively prevents rodents from burrowing and creating tunnels. Ideal for a range of applications, terastop® offers comprehensive protection in various scenarios. 

This geocomposite finds its application in safeguarding embankments, ensuring the stability and integrity of protective fences along riverbanks. Its reliable design is well-suited for reinforcing dikes, enhancing their resilience to environmental stresses. Additionally, terastop® proves invaluable in securing basins and canals, where its anti-puncture properties contribute to their longevity. 

In urban and industrial settings, terastop® emerges as a reliable choice for fortifying structures such as buildings and pylons. Its robust construction acts as a deterrent against rodent-damage, providing peace of mind in environments where the integrity of foundations and support structures is paramount. 

With terastop®, you can trust in a geocomposite that not only filters and reinforces, but also acts as a reliable barrier against rodents.

Installation technique

  • prepare a layout drawing to limit cutting out
  • prepare a flat, graded, compacted base, with no protruding elements
  • unroll terastop® on the ground with a pole passed through the reel, or by hand, or suspended from a lifting beam
  • cut out terastop® with a disc cutter, wearing a mask and gloves, plus a full protective glare shield
  • join the strips together by thermal bonding using a simple hot air / gas gun.


terastop® is available in a width of 2m x 50m.
