CELLULAR CONFINEMENT SYSTEM FOR ROAD & SITE DEVELOPMENT
Ensure that your project is on solid ground at almost any angle with EnviroGrid® Geocell, cellular confinement system. The geocell matrix prevents lateral movement of infill by confining and reinforcing material within its cells, which act to hold material in place. Not only does this prevent erosion, but it also significantly reduces pressure on the sub-base level, boosting the surface's weight-bearing capacity, all while requiring less material.
EnviroGrid® Geocell has four primary applications: 1) it provides stabilization and sub-base improvement for infrastructure over softer surfaces; 2) it solidifies slopes against erosion along channels and shorelines; 3) it protects channel beds from wearing away; and 4) where highway construction needs more support than natural earth allows, EnviroGrid® can be used to create retaining walls.
Select an application below for further details on the benefits and uses of the cellular confinement system.
EnviroGrid® placed on slopes will hold infill material in place. The cell walls slow the flow of water down the slope or in areas affected by wave action, reducing the formation of rills, a major cause of soil erosion. Depending on the site specifics, EnviroGrid® can confine infill material such as angular rock, concrete or native soils.
EnviroGrid® protects channels by counteracting various flow velocities. It can be laid directly on the slope and properly anchored. Based on the channel characteristics, EnviroGrid® can be filled with angular rock, vegetated soil, or concrete. Geo Products offers the needed anchoring for the system's integrity.
In very steep slope applications, soils can be retained with a vertical wall structure. Filled with local soils, EnviroGrid® can be used in both cut and fill situations by holding the soil in place and providing drainage throughout the structure. The outer cells can be vegetated, providing an environmentally pleasing look.
