Geocell AT CELL

The AT CELL geocell, also known as a cellular geogrid, is composed of textured and perforated high density plastic (HDPE) tapes. A geocell is a set of tapes of specific height connected by ultrasonic welding. This system is similar to the structure of a “honeycomb”, which after filling with aggregate and compacting improves the aggregate’s mechanical parameters. The spatial structure of geocells 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. The HDPE polyethylene is a soft and flexible material that can be easily formed and thus the section cells can be shaped freely, depending on the needs.

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. 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 geocell system prevents uneven settlement and reduces vertical forces. Thanks to this, the thickness of the structural layer of the foundation is appropriately modified. The use of the 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.

Application

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 structures adapted for fast road traffic;
  • surfaces of parking lots and manoeuvring areas for passenger cars and vans bicycle routes, alleys and footpaths;
  • for anti-erosion protection of slopes and embankments;
  • levees, rivers and water reservoirs;
  • drainage ditches and drainage systems;
  • to shape the elements of landscape architecture;
  • sports fields, golf courses, playgrounds, paddocks for animals.
