For over 30 years, the EnviroGrid® Geocell has been the solution for erosion control problems and soil stabilization needs for projects throughout all 7 continents. EnviroGrid® is manufactured in the USA within an ISO 9001:2015 and CE Certified facility with 100% virgin high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resin.
EnviroGrid® is offered in 3 typical cell sizes which are EGA 20, EGA 30, and EGA 40 and each are offered in cell heights of 3", 4", 6", and 8". Custom cell sizes and heights are able to be manufactured for specific projects.
Geo Products divides projects into 4 main applications which are soil stabilization, erosion control, channel protection and retaining walls.
EnviroGrid® provides a direct, cost-effective solution for poor load-bearing soils that create issues for transportation and construction based projects. The high-strength cell walls maintain the shape and integrity of the structure, allowing for heavy loads without fear of lateral movement of the infill material.
KEY BENEFITS OF GEOCELL FOR SOIL STABILIZATION:
EnviroGrid® effectively holds slope cover materials in place, reducing the potential for slope erosion. The EnviroGrid® geocells can be used in slopes as steep as 70 degrees and secured in place by our EnviroClip twist anchors or our tendon system.
EnviroGrid® allows channels to achieve a system that is not only resistant to erosion, but stable under the slope geometry and hydro-static uplift forces. EnviroGrid® can be laid directly on the slope, properly anchored, and filled with a various material based on the project's needs.
In situations where a slope is steeper than the soil alone would allow, EnviroGrid® can be stacked to create a gravity retaining wall. The structure stands by virtue of its weight and can be easily constructed with local aggregates. Gravity retaining walls have a degree of flexibility that allows them to be constructed over variable foundation soils without loss of structural stability.
Geo Products recognizes that construction generally leaves a significant footprint upon the environment, and therefore seeks to reduce any impact that our EnviroGrid® incurs upon the landscape. The limited amount of infill required for EnviroGrid® as opposed to conventional construction methods, as well as the lower quality needed, offers not only a much softened blow to the environment but also reduces project engineering, length, and cost.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) system for designing and certifying environmentally sustainable buildings is the national standard for rating environmentally responsible construction. Introduced and enabled by the United States Green Building Council, LEED® takes into account materials and resources used, site location and development, air quality, and water and energy use in its evaluation of green buildings.
