GeoWeb (or GeoCells) are specialty three-dimensional structures made for slope and channel protection. The cells are filled with materials such as topsoil, gravel, crushed rock or in some cases, concrete. The goal of GeoWeb is to hold the upper soil layer in place on a slope to prevent washout from sheet flow, wave action, wind or other erosive forces.
On steeper slopes, GeoWeb installation may act as a Stacked Bank Stabilization System. Essentially, the Stacked Bank Stabilization System, also referred to as Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE), acts as a retaining wall to hold back the embankment and prevent future erosion.
Other effective GeoWeb (or GeoGrid, GeoPave) applications are for access roads, drainage areas, driveway, landscaping, parking lot, or trail stabilization. In these applications, GeoWeb provides a porous solution, while handling the stress of vehicles and other activities.
Various GeoWeb construction applications include:
- Access Roads
- Drainage Areas
- Landscaping Drainage
- Parking Lots
- Porous Pavement
- Slope Protection
- Trail Stabilization
