Horizontal use of Neoloy® geocells placed on top of each other in an embankment structure, allows a rapid and effective establishment of steep slopes.
The external strip of Geocells is filled with sand or vegetation soil thus allowing the integration of vegetation and blending into the local landscape. It also enables better drainage or irrigation. Each cell functions as a planter in itself, ensuring the preservation of the beds and a healthier growth of vegetation.
The geocells provide a durable and long term solution, also under serious surface run-off conditions. The apertures in the cell walls allow for drainage and prevent the built up of hydraulic pressures.
By filling the geocells with locally available soil, there is no need for transport of quality fills or other materials making this an economic erosion control solution..
The geocells provide an ecological solution by using local soils, preserving water and creating good conditions for vegetation growth.
