GEOSINTETIC STRUCTURES FILLED WITH CONCRETE GEOOBOLOCHKA “GEOFRAM” INJECTABLE
Surface erosion caused by the action of rain and wind can provoke damage to infrastructure causing economic losses and pollute the water of reservoirs and rivers bringing and creating environmental damage.
To protect against these erosive phenomena on the slopes, geosynthetic structures can be installed. That will prevent surface degradation and landslides, avoiding fragments from falling on roads or transit areas.
Geotextiles made of polyester have excellent technical characteristics and high resistance to chemical and biological degradation. They have high permeability, which allows the fluid to escape, retaining the particles inside.
The durability of the methods used for the erosion control is a fundamental and essential requirement in the construction and maintenance of the structures.
STEPS TO FOLLOW FOR THE PLACEMENT OF CONCRETE GEOSYNTHETIC STRUCTURES
In the photomontage you can see the placement of geosynthetic structures to control erosion in a slope, which will later be filled with concrete. Geoobolochka “GeoFRAM” injectable will solve the problem of erosion and will prevent landslides.
First, we prepare the ground minimally by removing large stones, stumps, bushes, etc. and leveling the area. Next, we will extend the geosynthetic material and we will sew it or stapling with each other to cover the entire slope.
Once the material is extended, we proceed to the placement of the sleeve in the specific holes that the material brings for filling, and we begin to project the liquid concrete, which will be distributed homogeneously throughout the geosynthetic structure.
Once the concrete solidified, the structure acquires the same shape as the topography of the land, giving a mattress appearance.
This structure can present different configurations, giving a different final aspect in each of them, and even leaving gaps allowing plants to grow.
MTHREE-DIMENSIONAL GEOSYNTHETIC MESHES: GEOOBOLOCHKA “GEOFRAM” PROSET
STEPS TO FOLLOW FOR THE POSITIONING OF THREE-DIMENSIONAL GEOSYNTHETIC MESHES: Geoobolochka “GeoFRAM” PROSET
In the photomontage you can see the placement of three-dimensional geosynthetic meshes are made of polyester, to control the erosion of a slope. Geoobolochka “GeoFRAM” PROSET is the solution for erosion problems, besides being a very good solution for the modeling of the landscape, since it allows the growth of a plant mantle that will completely hide the structure and thanks to its roots, it will strengthen the slope even more .
First, we prepare the ground minimally by removing large stones, stumps, bushes, etc. and leveling the area. Next, we will place the geosynthetic mesh and we will be securing it to the slope with T or L shaped pegs, this anchoring is temporary, once the structure is filled, it will be removed. The structures will be joined to each other by U-shaped staples.
As soon as Geoobolochka “GeoFRAM PROSET is placed on the slope, we proceed to fill the cells with sand, gravel or the absorbing material itself removed from the ground, depending on the final appearance we want to obtain. In this case, the structure was to be covered with vegetation.
