- erosion control,
- soil stabilization on flat ground and steep slopes,
- channel protection,
- and structural reinforcement for load support and earth retention.
Typical cellular confinement systems are made with ultrasonically welded high-density polyethylene (HDPE) strips or Novel Polymeric Alloy (NPA)—and expanded on-site to form a honeycomb-like structure—and filled with sand, soil, rock, gravel or concrete.
One large benefit geocells deliver is they allow the use of in situ materials to infill the cells which greatly reduces your costs over engineered fills. By individually confining the inferior soils over numerous cells in a 360 degree pattern, it either strengthens the soil properties or retains the soil in an erosion control application.
