Polymer Geocells

Our company manufactures three-dimensional geocells under the brand name PROTECT. Geocells are high-density polyethylene (HDPE) strips, ultrasonically welded to each other to form cellular structure. Such joints feature high durability. Three-dimensional geocells are intended for three-dimensional reinforcement, for the separation of units of soil or filling material in order to form a composite layer, which would boast high rigidity and reliability, as well as good pressure distribution capacity, substantial resistance to dynamic stress, soil washout and uneven deformations.
Three-dimensional geocells PROTECT are used for soil stabilization
• in road building: for the separation of road surface layers on the roadside, for the reinforcement of road surface bottom layers;
• in landscape architecture works: for the reinforcement, erosion prevention and arrangement of green spaces on the sloping banks of a water body or a canal, along the channel of a small watercourse, near a viaduct, bridge, tunnel or trunk railway;
• in construction of sports facilities: for the bottom layers reinforcement of extreme sports grounds;
• in beautification projects: for making a seedbed when planting lawns.

Geocells size

The height of geocells ribs may range from 5 to 20 cm. The standard size of a geocell mesh is 210 x 210 cm. Module size in expanded state is 600 x 275 cm.
Our equipment allows manufacturing geocells according to customer`s requirements. To get precise price calculation you must leave a calculation request.
The installation of three-dimensional geocells for slopes reinforcement includes the following stages:
The application of three-dimensional geocells must comply with requirements of design and estimate documentation, as well as with existing regulations on the construction of diverse building structures. While choosing materials one should consider the correlation between the fineness of aggregate and the size of geocells pockets to prevent uneven filling of geocells structure.
1. The ground should be prepared beforehand: it must be smoothed down, cleared away from stones and large pieces of litter, compacted. Then it must be covered with geotextile, the sheets of which should overlap at edges. Due to the application of geotextile the filling material, which will be used later, will be able to keep its steady position and not mix with lower layers of soil. Additionally, geotextile ensures sufficient drainage of construction.
2. The installation should advance from the top of a slope to its bottom. The steeper a slope is, the higher geocells ribs must be. Pieces of geocells are to be expanded so that its pockets become equally-sized; then anchor geocells to the ground.
3. The next stage includes filling with desired material (soil, sand, crushed rock, etc.) and compacting. The resulting surface may be planted with grass in future, which will not only form an attractive green “carpet” on the slope but also add to the stability, thanks to the interwoven grass-roots.
If works are carried out at winter, one should monitor the quantity of snow in geocells pockets. Their filling with aggregate is allowed if the layer of snow doesn’t exceed 20% of their capacity.
