The use of the AT CELL geocell system allows the reduction of road foundation layers and the maintenance and stabilization of slopes and embankments. The soil or aggregate filling the cells is blocked by the walls of the system, thanks to which they gain better compaction.
The reduction in the thickness of the road foundation significantly reduces construction costs while maintaining the required substrate parameters.
In addition, the aggregate wedging process is observed, which has a positive effect on the internal friction angle of the backfill. Properly compacted backfill together with the AT CELL geocell system prevents uneven settlement and reduces vertical forces. Thanks to this, the thickness of the structural layer of the foundation is appropriately modified.
On flat terrain, the backfill is blocked by geocell walls, individual cells interact with each other, which reduces vertical forces. When strengthening and stabilizing the slopes, the perforated walls of the geocell block the movement of the charging material and limit its leaching on the slope, which has a positive effect on stabilization and anti-erosion properties.
The use of the AT CELL geocell system allows to reduce the phenomenon of aggregate leaching, which has a significant impact on the stabilization and anti-erosion properties of the escarpment and embankments.
