Soil drainage and compaction are desirable in civil construction and can be an engineering design challenge for load support, earth retention, or erosion control projects. Geocell, a cutting-edge cellular soil confinement product, can offer the ideal solution. Resembling a honeycomb structure with hallow openings, geocell allows for effective vertical and lateral water drainage. This facilitates groundwater recharge, prevents erosion, and avoids surface runoff. Its’ hollow openings can be filled with various materials to prevent horizontal movement, and increase both shear strength and bearing capacity. The proximity of the cells also provides considerable weight distribution, allowing for heavy load support without displacement.
Geocell minimizes the impact of man-made construction on the environment, providing a more environmentally friendly solution than other construction alternatives.
