Geocell system provides a wide variety of economical, flexible protection treatments for open channels and hydraulic structures. The system provides stability and protection of channels exposed to erosive conditions ranging from low-to- high flows either intermittent or continuous.
Geocell can be used for channel and shoreline protection and on scour aprons, boat ramps and spillways, geocell avoids the need to install costly load support structures.
Swales and drainage ditches
Stormwater diversion or containment
Process water channels or containment
Spillways / Down chutes / drop structures
intermittent of continous / low-to-high flow channels.
Excavate and shape foundation soils.
Insatll a geotextile underlayer on prepared surfaces.
If required, install geogrid underlayer on prepared Surfaces. Geocell panel placement and anchorage.
Subject to site requirement, generally follow the sloppe protection installation method or earth retention installtion method.
Place chosen inﬁll material in expanded cells
Limit drop height to a maximum of 1m to avoid damage or displacement of the cell walls.
Compact inﬁll matetial per engineer's speciﬁcation.
Infill materials, subject to site conditions, include :
Top soil for low to moderate and intermittent ﬂow conditions.
Granular materials including gravel and concrete for channels subject to severe hydraulic and mechanical stresses.
