The three-dimensional lateral confinement of the Ecoweb™ Geocells along with anchoring techniques ensures the long-term stability of slopes using vegetated topsoil, aggregate or concrete surfacing. The enhanced drainage, frictional forces and cell-soil-plant interaction of Ecoweb™ prevents downslope movement and limits the impact of raindrops, channeling and hydraulic shear stresses.
Typical Applications Including:
Dikes and Levees
The Ecoweb™ Geocell effectively controls erosion as the cells prevent movement of the infill. The confined infill therefore acts as a counterweight on sloped areas and improves stability. Perforations in the 3D cells allow the passage of water, nutrients and soil organisms. This encourages plant growth and root interlock, which further stabilizes the slope and soil mass, and facilitates landscape rehabilitation.
The Ecoweb™ Geocell can provide a means of fully vegetating slope surfaces where this would not otherwise be possible. Contributed by the ‘cell’ type, it can contain a variety of infill materials, which greatly improves resistance to erosive forces such as rainwater run-off on steep or unstable slopes, or slopes exposed to severe hydraulic or mechanical stresses.
Also they bring marvelous benefits including:
♦ Ecoweb™ Geocell has high resistance to UV, oxidation, water, extreme temperatures.
♦ Ecoweb™ Geocell provides mechanical protection against run-off and rill development.
♦ Ecoweb™ Geocell enables the flow of Water, Nutrients and Soil Organisms.
♦ Ecoweb™ Geocell improves the growth of the vegetation, soil health and visual landscape.
♦ Ecoweb™ Geocell protects embankments and slopes with the steep angle to save land and costs.
♦ Ecoweb™ Geocell allows embankments to be steeper than when unconfined, reducing use of valuable land space.
