Product Solutions

Canals and other waterways are subject to barge- and boat-driven waves which can undermine the stability of the slopes. TERRAM Standard Geotextiles possess the hydraulic and filtration characteristics that allow them to replace several layers of stone filters which have been used traditionally to deal with this problem.

The trial involved laying TERRAM 1000 Standard Geotextile on the clay slope to act as a filter and prevent soil erosion. This was followed by a stone-filled Geocell to act as the revetment armour. The Geocell will retain the stone and ensure its long-term stability. The Geocell is manufactured from a TERRAM geotextile so it will drain easily.
