TenWeb Erosion Control Geocell

The ground on slopes is often dry and rocky due to lack of organic material. Under these conditions, it is necessary for an adequate depth of soil to be provided to allow for growth of vegetation. Since topsoil has poor mechanical properties, it can easily slide down the slope and get washed away by heavy rainfall before vegetation has become established.


TenWeb geocells are honeycomb shaped structures manufactured by continuous extrusion of polyethylene without welding. The structure expands and therefore, can be stored and transported with minimal space. When opened out during installation, a series of completely interconnecting ovoid cells is created. Once expanded to its maximum extension and filled with light compacted soil or fine aggregate, a means of confinement for unconsolidated materials is created within the cells preventing their movement even on steep slopes. If required, the area can then be seeded to achieve a green environment.



Features & Applications

  • Manufactured to ISO 9001 Standards
  • 3 Dimensional Cellular Confinement System
  • Available in 35 Metre or 50 Metre Squared Panels
  • Can also be seeded after installation to provide a natural grassed area.
  • Paths and Roadway Construction
  • Slope Protection
  • Domestic Drives and Pathways
  • Roadway Verges can be protected against erosion
  • Tree Root Protection


The junctions of TenWeb have a central opening through which water can permeate ensuring that organic material receives moisture for rapid growth.
