The Ecoweb™ Geocells provide steep vertical mechanically stabilized earth structures (either gravity or reinforced walls) for steep faces, walls and irregular topography.
Typical Applications Including:
Flood Defense Bunds
Construction of Ecoweb™ in earth retention application is simplified as each layer is structurally sound thereby providing access for equipment and workers, while eliminating the need for concrete formwork and curing.
This structure is able to retain the earth behind it by virtue of its weight. Local soil can be used for infill when suitable and granular, while the outer faces enable a green or tan fascia of the horizontal terraces/rows utilizing topsoil. It is required that the outer cells contain concrete or cementious slurry infill.
The Ecoweb™ Geocells have been used to reinforce soft or uneven soil foundations for large area footings, for retaining wall strip footings, for load sharing of covers over pipelines and other geotechnical applications.
Why use Ecoweb™
Typically the Ecoweb™ Geocells are inexpensive to build and can be built in almost all weather conditions. They adds color to the area, and softens the appearance of the wall face, absorb water from flowing down the slope.
Also they bring marvelous benefits:
♦ Ecoweb™ Geocell forms a composite structure that behaves as a monolithic mass, even in soft foundation soils.
♦ Ecoweb™ Geocell absorbs energy making it highly resistant to seismic activity.
♦ Ecoweb™ Geocell has high resistance to photo-oxidation, UV, acid and alkali, low creep.
♦ Ecoweb™ Geocell becomes a green wall with vegetation on the outer rows for an aesthetic retention solution.
