Product Description

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.

Why use HDPE Geocells

  • Light material, resistant to wear, withstand highly acidic and alkalis environments, applicable to different soil types.
  • Flexible to fold during transportation and easy installation
  • High carrying capacity and good dynamic performance and high erosion ability
  • Geocells offer a green solution that adds sustainability to infrastructure products by reducing the amount of infill needed to reinforce load support applications which in turn reduces the pollution and carbon footprint.
  • Increased urbanisation across Australia and more contractors moving towards sustainable and economic ways of implementing projects can drive the usage of geocells in the construction sector pertaining to lateral and vertical containment, soil erosion control.
