Cellular confinement systems
Construct roads over soft soils and naturally-vegetated retaining walls, stabilise steepened embankments, channels and shorelines, and protect geomembranes. Create reliable solutions that perform long after they’re installed.
Geoweb key applications
LOAD SUPPORT: Economical system solves unacceptable road, parking, and yard surface problems.
- 3D structure stabilises infill and controls shearing, lateral and vertical movement. Allows use of less costly on-site infill materials.
- Reduces base material requirements and costs by half.
- Beneficial for load distribution over weak soils, base stabilisation for paved surfaces and surface stabilisation for unpaved surfaces.
TREE ROOT PROTECTION: Most of a tree’s root system is contained within the top three feet of the surface and construction excavation and compaction can damage or even destroy roots to the point where trees may not survive.
The Geoweb Tree Root Protection System has been used extensively in civil engineering construction for over 30 years. It is a three-dimensional structure which:
- provides strength to confined soils
- reduces sub-base depth requirements
- distributes loads laterally, not vertically
Manufactured from high quality, high-strength polyethylene with a textured surface and perforated walls, Geoweb cells with selected infill control shearing, lateral and vertical movement and reduce point loads and compaction of the sub-soil.
The Geoweb system is a low impact development solution with exceptional load-bearing capabilities and environmental benefits. The system has a long history of solving heavy load support problems for roadways, road base support, car parks, road shoulders, ports, lorry/intermodal terminals and railways.
SLOPE PROTECTION: Creates a stable environment for and long-term sustainability of embankment material.
3D structure reinforces the upper soil layer and resists erosive conditions and sliding forces beyond limits of other systems. Long-term solution for sustainable vegetation, permeable aggregate, hard-armored concrete or geomembrane protection.
Reduces land space requirements and costs by allowing slopes to be designed steeper than when unconfined.
CHANNEL PROTECTION: Ensures stability and protection of channels exposed to all types of erosive conditions.
Effective with low or high, intermittent or continuous flows. Can be designed to withstand the highest velocities with appropriate infill materials.
Research substantiates the effectiveness of the vegetated Geoweb/TRM system for sustaining velocities as high as 30 ft/sec (9m/sec). Vegetation can replace costly rip rap in drainage ditches and stormwater channels.
VEGETATED RETAINING WALLS: Creates economical, vegetated retaining walls that meet all design requirements.
Typical wall structures include steepened slopes, geocomposite retaining walls, gravity walls and multi-layered channel systems.
Quicker installation is contractor-friendly. Handling light-weight sections causes less stress on workers compared to block wall systems.
Time-savings accessories and tools improve productivity, offer tangible cost savings. ATRA® Keys,ATRA® Anchors, ATRA® Driver System
A proven solution for stabilising and minimising the sliding potential of infill materials over impervious liners.
High-strength tendons are integral when anchors cannot be used.
