Problem: Soil erosion particles are susceptible to being detached and carried away with concentrated runoff streams, forming rills and gullies that grow with time. The slope integrity is diminished, eroding the slope face and becoming a larger environmental and safety issue. Slopes steeper than the natural angle of repose for the slope materials require additional slope erosion control measures, as are slopes subject to more severe hydraulic stresses.
Solution: Roadgrid & Soil Stabilization effectively holds slope cover materials in place, thus reducing the potential for slope erosion. Cell walls check the runoff streams associated with rainfall, keeping the overall system intact. The infill material also rests within individual cells, allowing for much higher angles of repose. The Roadgrid & Soil Stabilization geocells can be used in slopes as steep as 70° and secured in place by our CellClip twist anchors or our tendon system. Our Roadgrid & Soil Stabilization is the perfect complement to erosion control blankets and hydroseeding.
