The TYPAR Geocell confinement system utilizes a three-dimensional geotextile “honeycomb” structure to provide erosion control and soil stabilization across a wide variety of applications. The fill material is confined within the strong, flexible, and permeable geotextile cell structure, restricting down-slope migration in slope applications and provides a stable load distribution on paved, unpaved, and soft sub-grade areas. The permeable nature of geotextile geocells ensures the continuous water flow throughout the support without using drilled holes. TYPAR Geocells are flexible, easy to handle and install, and are low maintenance, economical, and strong, providing a cost-effective solution for many soil stabilization applications.

Bury HydroBlox in an area where you need to control the water. The planks can be laid flat, placed on edge, or even stacked. There is no need for heavy equipment, geotextiles, drainage pipe, sand, or aggregate. Just establish the proper slope, install the HydroBlox, and backfill. As water is introduced to the planks, filling the microscopic cracks and crevasses throughout the product, the planks become saturated. This is where gravity takes over—the water will flow downward, utilizing the easier path through HydroBlox. Once one plank is saturated, the water flows from plank to plank to its final destination.
