Geocell Erosion Control

Geocell Erosion Control is an erosion control product produced from polyethylene, used to prevent surface erosion that may be caused by wind and water before planting on sloping surfaces. Geocell is an erosion control material with honeycomb geometry formed by extrusion of high density polyethylene. The joints of the bands are integrated and allow hydraulic flow between neighboring cells.

Application and Usage Areas

It is fixed to properly compacted, smooth (rough and not protruding) soils on slopes with U-shaped fasteners. With the anchor trenches created, the materials are fixed to the ground.

  • On road and railway slopes
  • On the pond canal shore slopes
  • On dry channel bottoms and slopes

Advantages

  • As there is no need for an expert application team, it saves application labor.
  • Long-lasting thanks to the raw materials and production technology used.
  • Contributes to environmental protection by preventing erosion and creating infrastructure for greening.
  • Because it also allows greening, it looks aesthetically pleasing.
