Ground Stabilization – Overview

The more difficult the soil, environment or project conditions are, the more you need PRS-Neoweb™ cellular confinement systems (geocells). PRS-Neoweb geocells are well suited to road projects in which soil bearing capacity, aggregates, durability, and costs are critical issues.

PRS-Neoweb reinforcement reduces infill quantities by up to 50% while enabling the utilization of local, marginal or recycled material for structural infill that cannot be used with conventional road construction methods. This saves project time, labor and costs, and the carbon footprint. As the most durable solution available today, PRS-Neoweb adds a new dimension to geocells – time (life-span)– to the existing 3D cellular dimensions (length x width x height) and provides a clear value proposition compared to conventional geocells, and 2D grids and geosynthetics.

  • Ground Reinforcement – PRS-Neoweb strengthens soil, prevents degradation and enhances load-bearing capacity.
  • Reduce structural pavement thickness – reduce substrata (and asphalt) structural support layers by 50% or more.
  • Use local soils, waste and recycled materials for infill – 3D vertical reinforcement zone improve performance of inferior granular soils to save resources, costs, and the environment.
  • Fast and durable unpaved roads – enable fast construction of access, service and haul roads in challenging soils, terrain, and environments.
  • Long-term design strength – PRS-Neoweb lowers operational costs and maintenance, freeing resources for new road and rail construction instead of repairs.

PRS-Neoweb also offers as a single solution for an entire infrastructure project. In addition to reinforcement for flexible pavements, PRS-Neoweb provides ground stabilization matting, earth stabilization, and slope/channel protection, for embankments, ground reinforcement system, retaining walls, road scapes, flyovers, and stream diversions, typical of large-scale projects.
