GEOBLOCK® Vegetated Porous Pavement image

GEOBLOCK® Vegetated Porous Pavement

Permeable Grass Pavers Provide Drivable Turf Protection

Create drivable grassed areas for occasional traffic loading with the grass protected from loading stresses with GEOBLOCK® high-strength turf pavers. Because of their rigid design and exceptional load-spreading capability, GEOBLOCK® porous pavements support heavy traffic loads (up to H-20 loading) with minimal base. With topsoil infill and an engineered base, the system offers high stormwater infiltration rates and is an excellent growing medium, allowing grass to grow faster and stay healthier.

GEOBLOCK® 5150 Vegetated Porous Pavement image

GEOBLOCK® 5150 Vegetated Porous Pavement

The Most Robust Grass Paving System for Turf Protection

Design grass emergency lanes and permeable parking areas with the industry's toughest performing porous pavement system. GEOBLOCK® 5150 rigid grass pavers provide unparalleled load distribution (up to H-20 loading), a high resistance to rutting and torsional loading stresses, and excellent turf protection. Topsoil infill and engineered base allow a high rate of stormwater infiltration and offers an excellent growing medium for quick grass growth and grass life. Less base = less excavation, less fill material, and less cost.

GEOPAVE® Aggregate Porous Pavement

Aggregate Porous Paving Delivers Infiltration & Storage

Control stormwater infiltration, manage runoff and create storage with porous pavements designed for every day traffic. With highly-permeable open-graded aggregate infill, GEOPAVE gravel pavers promote a high rate of percolation, limit runoff and perform as a natural on-site retention system. Herringbone cells and integrated mesh bottom keeps aggregate in place even under heavy traffic use. GEOPAVE porous pavements are the economical alternative to porous asphalt and pervious concrete.

GEOWEB® Geocells image

GEOWEB® Geocells

The Original Geocell Confinement System Stabilizes Soils

Presto Geosystems invented geocells in the late 1970's and has been leading the technology ever since with important product advancements and design and construction accessories for higher performance and faster installation. Presto's GEOWEB® system is the industry's most complete geocell system designed with fully-engineered components to withstand the most challenging site problems. Made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) since conception, GEOWEB geocells offer the highest, longest-lasting performance of any geocell system in civil applications.

GEOWEB® 3D Geocells Transform Infill Material

Make use of local fill to construct site access roads with the GEOWEB Load Support System allowing immediate access after installation. The GEOWEB system outperforms 2D reinforcement materials that require deeper, more costly base materials. GEOWEB 3D confinement system is equally beneficial for base stabilization under asphalt or concrete and can reduce base materials by 50% or more.

GEOWEB® Slope Protection System image

GEOWEB® Slope Protection System

Deep Erosion Control and Embankment Stabilization

Stabilize the upper soil layer on embankments with the 3D GEOWEB® Slope Protection System to resist sliding, prevent severe erosion caused by surface runoff, and allow steeper slopes to be built. Protect geomembranes on dams, landfills, and containment basins with the industry's only complete geocell solution featuring the tendon and ATRA® Tendon Clip support system.

GEOWEB® Shoreline Protection image

GEOWEB® Shoreline Protection

Natural and Hard-Armor Shoreline Protection

Offering unique solutions to prevent erosion problems caused by water contact, surface flow and wave action with the 3D GEOWEB® Shoreline Protection System. Provides protect to geomembranes on ponds and in stormwater and wastewater containment basins. The GEOWEB® System creates a stable environment for infill.

GEOWEB® Channel Protection System image

GEOWEB® Channel Protection System

Geocells Offer Versatility for Stormwater Control

Design GEOWEB channels with varying infill options that eliminates the need for costly rip-rap, gabions and articulated concrete blocks (ACBs). Prevent erosion on channel slopes exposed to intermittent or continuous flow conditions with single-layered or tiered GEOWEB Channels. With an overlying TRM, GEOWEB vegetated channels can withstand flows up to 30 ft/sec (9m/sec)!

GEOWEB® Retaining Walls image

GEOWEB® Retaining Walls

Naturally-Vegetated, Green Retaining Wall Systems

Design vegetated reinforced and gravity walls that retain structural integrity even in poor base conditions with GEOWEB® Retaining Walls. The GEOWEB system's open-celled terraces create a natural environment for sustainable vegetation and allow storm water infiltration. GEOWEB walls conform well to landscape contours, are resistant to environmental degradation, and install 25-30% faster than MSE block walls. Presto offers design software to create GEOWEB Retaining Walls.

GEOWEB® Erosion Control image

GEOWEB® Erosion Control

3D Geocells Protect Embankments from Severe Erosion

Shore up steep embankments and prevent severe erosion on slopes and channels with the GEOWEB System. The 3D cellular network prevents sheet flow from causing scour and erosion on slope surfaces. Confinement of infill allows smaller rock or vegetation in place of larger, costly rip rap. With concrete infill, the system is a flexible, hard-armor solution - more economical than reinforced concrete or articulated concrete blocks (ACBs). For grassed areas prone to concentrated erosion, GEORUNNER® Mats offer protection from scour.

GEORUNNER® Scour Protection image

GEORUNNER® Scour Protection

High-Performance Transition Mats Stop Scour

Protect areas subjected to concentrated flows from scour and surface erosion with GEORUNNER® Mats. Fully interconnected mats protect underlying TRMs or erosion control blankets, allowing low-maintenance vegetation at pipe outfalls, drainage ditches and swales instead of costly, higher maintenance rip rap. Shorelines with moderate wave action are also protected from erosion with GEORUNNER Mats.

GEORUNNER® Turf Protection Mats image

GEORUNNER® Turf Protection Mats

Landscape Mats Protect Grass from Light Vehicle Access

Drive over grass with light construction vehicles and equipment without damaging the turf with GEORUNNER® Portable Mats. GEORUNNER mats help prevent deep rutting, soil compaction and turf damage that would require post-construction restoration. They also bridge sandy areas to support light-weight vehicles, wheel chairs and foot traffic. For longer term use, the open cells allow water and light to reach the turf eliminating vegetation damage. A better alternative to plywood, the mats are made from weather-resistant polymer that will not absorb water, are easy to clean and store, and will not rot or degrade.
