AT CELL

Geocell

The AT CELL geocell, also known as a geogrid, is composed of textured and perforated high density plastic (HDPE) tapes. A set of tapes of specific height connected by ultrasonic welding is a system similar to the structure of a “honeycomb”, which after filling with aggregate and compacting improves the aggregate’s mechanical parameters.

The spatial structure is created for optimal force transmission, pressure reduction and minimization of outlays in order to obtain satisfactory soil parameters on difficult geotechnical substrates, or with unregulated soil-water relations. The AT CELL geocell is produced in sections of sizes adapted to the nature of the implementation. HDPE polyethylene is a soft and flexible material that can be easily formed, thanks to which section cells can be shaped freely.

Functions

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.

Usage

The AT CELL geocell system is used in the broadly understood soil stabilization in the area of:

  • road construction, starting from forest and temporary routes, through local roads, to buildings adapted for fast road traffic
  • parking lot surfaces and maneuvering areas for passenger cars and vans bicycle routes,
  • alleys and footpaths for anti-erosion protection of slopes and embankments of levees,
  • rivers and water reservoirs for drainage ditches and drainage systems to shape landscape architecture elements
  • sports fields,
  • golf courses,
  • playgrounds,
  • paddocks for animals
