Frequently Asked Questions

Can TERRAM Geocells be used to form retaining walls?

Yes, TERRAM geocells can be used to form retaining structures although this is not an application area that we actively promote in the UK market due to historic lack of demand. Different grades of TERRAM Geocells can be manufactured specifically for retaining structure applications but are made to order and there is a minimum order quantity. 

What are the benefits of a TERRAM non-woven geotextile Geocell vs HDPE strips?

TERRAM Geocells are much more flexible and easier to handle than cells made from HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) strips. TERRAM Geocell panels easily match the ground contours ensuring continuous erosion protection rather than bridging over depressions in the surface. The fully permeable fabric of TERRAM geocells ensures fill within the cells remain well drained reducing the risk of soil saturation & erosion. The non-woven geotextile material does not crack or split unlike stiff & brittle HDPE strips. 

Are TERRAM Geocells permeable?

Yes, TERRAM Geocells are manufactured from 100% permeable nonwoven geotextile fabric allowing ground water to pass through the cell walls rather than cascading over or underneath causing soil erosion.

Can I staple Geocells together?

Geocells can be stapled together using heavy duty galvanised metal staples, UV stabilised nylon cable ties or steel u-bars. Minimum 3 staples per joint at 25mm spacings. Please refer to the Geocell erosion control SDI for further details. 

How many pins are needed per SQM when fixing a Geocell panel?

The general rule of thumb is 10 No. pins per TERRAM Geocell panel on a flat surface (Tree Root Protection) and 90 No. pins per panel on a slope (erosion control) however site specific conditions may require more or less.
