It is supplied as compact man-handleable panels, ready to be expanded on site to 5m x 7m or 6m x 3m areas with a honeycomb of diamond-shaped cells that are 100mm, 150mm or 200mm deep.
Once placed and secured on the slope, the Geocell can be filled with soil or a mineral fill. The result is that the confined fill is able to better resist the erosive effects of wind and run-off.
The expanded panels should be fixed at every perimeter cell and at 1m centres throughout using steel fixing pins.
The Geocell is flexible enough to be formed around trees and other obstacles.
Seeded topsoil is the most suitable fill for less-exposed slopes, with small shrubs offering improved protection, whilst a granular material offers the highest protection.
The Terram geocell confinement system is suitable for:
- Cut or fill embankments
- Dams or spillways
- Abutment protection
- Geomembrane protection
- Landfill capping
