TerraCell is an innovative geosynthetic product providing solutions for difficult stabilization, erosion control and retaining structure problems. TerraCell, generically referred to as a "geocell," confines native or select fill materials and is the integral component of a cellular confinement system.

TerraCell is a lightweight, flexible mat made of polyethylene strips. These strips are ultrasonically bonded together to form an extremely strong, honeycomb configuration. A variety of fill materials can be placed within the TerraCell system: soil, sand, aggregate, concrete, etc. The use of TerraCell and the appropriate fill material create numerous opportunities for versatile and economical solutions for many applications including:

  • GROUND STABILIZATION
  • SLOPE EROSION CONTROL
  • RETAINING WALLS
  • STREAM CROSSING
  • CHANNEL EROSION CONTROL
  • EMBANKMENTS

To meet the project requirements, TerraCell is available in various heights and two different cell sizes: standard and "large cell." It can be perforated to allow water flow between cells and also to incorporate a tendon system for severe conditions.
