Erosion due to rainfall run-off damages engineering structures and slopes, creating gullies and erosion, which in certain cases may endanger the overall stability of the engineering structure.
Geocell Cellular Confinement System (Geocells), employing cells of varying size, texture and height, arrests erosion by confining soil in relatively small cells.
Protecting soil surface from gullies and similar damage facilitates growth of plants and protects their roots, and thereby the slope or inclination. Engineering solutions employing Geocells are available in various types of cells – perforated / non-perforated and in various colors – cells that can be filled with soil and granular materials, as well as with concrete.
Geocell Cellular Confinement System properties for preventing erosion include:
Resistance to UV radiation, resistance to chemicals present in the soil.
High strength and flexibility, facilitating adaptation to the soil surface.
Easy and rapid installation.
