GEOHEX™ EROSION CONTROL SYSTEM

RURAL APPLICATION

Its rigid structure and strong polymer construction enables GEOHEX Erosion Control System to be used as a walking grid to provide a cost-effective solution to prevent soft ground build-up and mud control in heavy traffic livestock areas and shed flooring. By combining to make a walking grid, the GEOHEX Erosion Control System plastic panels promote livestock flow and help reduce the incidence of lameness around trough and standoff areas, approaches and exits to yards and many other high traffic and frequently-used livestock areas.

     

     

CONSTRUCTION COMMERICAL OR RESIDENTIAL APPLICATION

With its unique patented open cell structure, GEOHEX Erosion Control System is designed to provide strong ground reinforcement and sediment control in all conditions. In construction applications, GEOHEX Erosion Control System can be combined with grass, gravel or a sand/soil mixture providing a complement to surrounding materials and other architecture such as the installation of plastic driveway grids.

INSTALLATION GUIDE

Prior to installing GEOHEX Erosion Control System, the following ground preparation is required.

  1. Prior mechanical compaction of the soil and / or ground base is essential for the successful performance of a GEOHEX Erosion Control System.
  2. It is recommended that a sand bed be placed under GEOHEX Erosion Control System so as to construct a perfectly flat surface under the soil layer to prevent rutting and subsidence due to vehicular or livestock movement.
  3. If the surface is prone to movement, it may be necessary to install extra sub-soil drainage to maintain the strength and integrity of the topsoil.
  4. Any additional drainage technology used may consist of coarse road base, agricultural piping, sand or a combination of all of these. Fine road base may lower or even prevent excess absorption of water.
  5. The sand bed under GEOHEX Erosion Control System requires moderate compacting to ensure proper topsoil leveling. GEOHEX Erosion Control System can then be placed right on top of this layer.
  6. The best infill for GEOHEX Erosion Control System is an angular stone up to 10-15 mm in size, which locks together to restrict any further slope movement.
  7. Other recommended infill products include topsoil, sand and fine gravel.
  8. Since it is made of plastic matting or pavers, the GEOHEX Erosion Control System can be used with any type of turf configuration or turf variety.
  9. The use of weed sheets is also recommended to prevent further maintenance in turf areas using GEOHEX Erosion Control System.
  10. Areas that have had GEOHEX Erosion Control System installed should be inspected regularly to determine if any damage or minor subsidence has occurred as a matter of precaution.
