HDPE Geocells are honeycomb looking structures made from High-density polyethylene (HDPE). These are designed to be filled with soils, granular, and other infill materials. Geocells are prominently used in the construction industry for controlling erosion and soil stabilisation on flat and sloped terrains, such as dam constructions where HDPE Geomembranes are used. The perforated honeycomb structures when stretched are capable of providing stability by restricting the vertical and lateral movement of the infill material which in-turn prevents events such as landslides.
HDPE Geocells are manufactured with varying finishes and cell depths.
- Textured Geocells are popular for their increased frictional resistance and reduced lateral displacement of infill material.
- Perforated HDPE Geocells are used to allow for easy draining of water along slopes.
Quality control measures ensure that the products supplied meet ASTM International standards. During the manufacturing process, HDPE Geocells are produced and welded using high-frequency ultrasonic technology for a strong configuration.
The flexible nature of HDPE Geocells allows them to be folded flat and stacked in panels which reduces the freight cost. Fixtures and connection buckles are used during installation on the construction site.
