The cellular geogrid of AT CELL, otherwise known as the Geocell, is composed of textured and perforated high-density plastic strips (HDPE). The band, which is connected by ultrasonic welding of tapes of a certain height, constitutes a system which is the same as the “honeycomb” structure, which, after crushing and concentrating, improves the mechanical parameters of the aggregate. Spatial structure is created for optimum transmission of forces, reduction of pressures and minimisation of inputs to achieve satisfactory soil parameters on difficult geotechnical substrates, or with unregulated relations Water. The AT CELL Geogrid is produced in sections with sizes tailored to the nature of the realization. HDPE polyethylene is a soft and prone material that is easy to form, so that the section cells can be freely shaped.
The mechanism of operation of the Geocells AT CELL
The use of the AT CELL Geocell system allows to reduce the layers of road substructures and to maintain and stabilized grading and planting. Soil or aggregate cells are blocked through the walls of the system, resulting in better density. In addition, the process of mutual wedging of aggregates is observed, which positively affects the friction angle of the internal backfill. Appropriately concentrated backfill with the AT CELL Geocell system counteracts uneven settling and reduces vertical forces. This ensures that the thickness of the construction layer of the substructure is modified accordingly. In addition, the application of the AT CELL geocells system allows to reduce the phenomenon of the flushed aggregate, which has a significant impact on the stabilization and anti-erosion properties of the grading and embankment.
