CORE Geocell - Stabilising & Infill Protection

The CORE Geocell geosynthetic cellular confinement system is a matrix of lightweight, expandable and flexible thermoplastic strips that are ultrasonically bonded to form a strong, dimensionally stable and inert honeycomb structure.

CORE Geocell is fabricated from a High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). The cell walls are perforated creating permeable walls to allow water to drain through the system.

When filled with granular materials, the system creates a three dimensional erosion control barrier and structural bridge that uniformly distributes weight-bearing loads. The cellular nature of CORE Geocell enhances drainage and prevents build-up of hydrostatic pressure.

“FORMS A LONG LASTING STRUCTURAL BARRIER”

  • Provides cost effective, long-term slope protection, channel protection and stabilisation
  • Can be used as a temporary track where temporary site access is required (see CORE Tree Root Protection)
  • Ease in transportation and on site handling due to collapsible cells
  • Rapid and simple installation confirms to most terrain profiles
  • Ultrasonic welding of cell joints ensures maximum strength
  • Withstands high weight bearing loads
  • Resistant to biological attack and a wide range of soil borne chemicals

CORE Geocell is easily dismantled and re-used, suitable for the construction of a temporary track.
Once operations are complete the installation can be removed or left in place if a sub-base confinement is required.

Please see the ‘Installation & Application’ tab for the how geocells can be used in different applications:

  • Erosion Control / Slope Protection
  • Temporary Tracks / Load Support
  • Channel Protection
  • Earth Retention

EARTH RETENTION

CORE Geocell can be used to retain infill in gravity retaining and free standing walls, embankments and barriers.

The shear strength of the infill is enhanced by confining material within each cell.

When installed in layers, CORE Geocell forms an integrated structural mass resisting lateral pressure and movement.

CORE Geocell is easily dismantled and may be subsequently re-used.

LOAD SUPPORT

CORE Geocell has application for use in driveways, maintenance roads, parking lots, cart paths, walkways, pipeline/ sewerage supports and in channel crossings.

The cell structure uniformly distributes high weight bearing loads and prevents the infill from being forced into the substrate below resulting in deformations and potholes.

SLOPE PROTECTION

CORE Geocell effectively controls erosion as the cells prevent movement of the infill. The confined infill also acts as a counterweight on sloped areas and provides stability.COREgeocell-slope-protection-systems

CHANNEL PROTECTION

CORE Geocell can be used for channel and shoreline protection and on scour aprons, boat ramps and spillways. CORE Geocell avoids the need to install costly load support structures.COREgeocell-channel-protection-systems
