Three dimensional cellular matrix confines and reinforces weak soils for use in soil retention on steep slopes.
Erosaweb geocell is designed for the reinforcement of weak soils and has many applications including retention of soils on steep slopes and highway and rail embankments. The cells of the geocell retain the fill material, while allowing water through.
- Earth retaining walls
- Slope reinforcement
- Sub-base reinforcement
- Erosion control
- Basal reinforcement
- Tree root protection
- Concrete shuttering
- Green roofs
- Cost effective
- Easy to install
- Reduces stone requirements
- Confines soil and fill material
- Environmentally friendly
Erosaweb geocell works by confining and stabilising the surface of weak soils by creating a honeycomb of interconnected polymer strips that form pockets to locate and strengthen the infill material.
Erosaweb can be laid over stable steep slopes where the cell walls provide a tensile force increasing the strength of the material and acting as mini-weirs to reduce run off velocity and soil loss. On a slope Erosaweb geocell is normally secured to the underlying material by frequent pinning, usually with steel pins. Where this is inadvisable or impossible, for instance when Erosaweb is installed over a geomembrane, the webs should be secured to a high-strength geogrid such as Trigrid.
Using Abweb geocell it is also possible to strengthen sub-bases and reduce foundation stone thickness under loaded areas by up to 50%.
Earth retaining walls can be formed with horizontal layers of Erosaweb geocell filled and placed one on another. A specific retaining wall product is available as Webwall geocell.
