Steep slopes, river banks, ditches, spillways and other exposed areas are often prone to damage caused by erosion due to wind or water. Gravel Sure or Erocell can help to prevent erosion by confining soils and aggregates to within the cell structure.
Varying degrees of protection can be afforded by selecting alternative in-fill materials. Seeded topsoil provides protection for less exposed areas. Protection may be increased by introducing vegetation such as small shrubs.For greater protection, a granular in-fill can be used in certain circumstances.
Appropiate in-fills can also be chosen to give a desired surface appearance.The standard 100mm depth FLP Cellular System is for erosion protection and non-vehicle traffic, FLP Gravel Sure and Erocell Systems are normally suitable for use on slopes with an incline of up to 45 degrees (1:1 slopes). If the slope angle is greater than 45 degrees, additional considerations need to be given to the design of the cellular system and the standard FLP EROCELL may not be suitable. In these instances please contact us for further assessment.

Please see Terram Gravelsure EROCELL data sheet for the product dimensions.Installation(a) Planning of InstallationIt is advised that adequate planning and ‘design’ of the installation is undertaken before commencement of site work. Each site is unique and particular precautions for ensuring a successful installation may differ from site to site.
When planning installation, attention should be given to ensuring that all equipment and tools required for installation are available. In addition, sufficient personnel (with the necessary skills) should be employed on the installation work. Adequate precautions should also be taken to ensure the safety of personnel. Some of the other matters to consider when planning installation include:
• Desired shapes and sizes of the cells
• Methods for compacting the slope surface (during surface preparation)
• Methods for fixing FLP EROCELL to the installation surface
• Anchoring details, to prevent excessive down-slope movement of FLP EROCELL
• Methods for filling the cells
• Methods for compacting the in-fill material into the cells, if required.
This list is by no means exhaustive and the designer should include all other necessary considerations. If planned correctly, the installation of FLP EROCELL should be a trouble-free experience.(b) Site Preparation Geocells perform better when installed on even,well-prepared surfaces. Prior to installing FLP EROCELL, it is advised that the slope surface is made level and even. Any sharp objects and stones that are much larger than (or significantly different in shape and angularity from) the intended fill material (i.e material to be placed in the cells) should be removed. If necessary, to achieve a level surface, compaction of the slope surface should be undertaken. If required, a suitable geotextile may be used as a separator between the geocell and the slope surface.If using tarmacadam a secondary layer of geotextile with a covering of i.e.crushed brich would be required in order to protect the Erocell cells.
