Geocells for base layer reinforcement


PRS Neoloy geocell is a 3-dimensional cellular confinement system in a honeycombed structure. When filled with sand or granular infill, a new 3-dimensional geosynthetic system is created with a complex interaction of cells, geometry and soil, ideal for soil confinement, stabilization and reinforcement applications.

Why Neoloy?

Neoloy geocell improves the performance of infill materials, while increasing the bearing capacity of structural pavement layers. Stiffness of the infill and cell is increased by both the hoop stresses developed in the cell wall and by passive resistance from surrounding cells. Confinement prevents movement and shearing of soil infill under cyclic loading, maintains compaction and reduces aggregate attrition.


Advantages:

  • Reduces construction costs for paved and unpaved roads in weak soil
  • Increases soil modulus/bearing capacity
  • Reduces aggregate structural pavement and asphalt layer thickness
  • Retains cell wall stiffness for project lifespan
  • Maintains compaction by eliminating particle movement
  • Allows utilization of local, inferior and recycled materials for infill
  • Reduces long-term maintenance costs
  • Provides sustainable solutions with significant environmental benefits
