Cellular Confinement Systems (GEOCELL/GEOWEB)

Geocell is comprised of expanding ultrasonically welded HDPE creating a three dimensional honeycomb-like structure. When filled with soil or other aggregate, it forms a cellular confinement system which provides slop stabilization, load support, and erosion control.

  • Containment dikes
  • Abutment protection
  • Roadways


Geocell is placed and then expanded along the prepared subgrade with fastener keys connecting panels together. Anchor stakes are then used to hold the geocell in place while fill material is placed in the individual cells. Once filled, the entire system can be carefully covered.
