Because they are inexpensive and versatile, use of Hyson Cells is very diverse - see sidebar on the left.

The geocells are used in four main categories :

  • The cell mat is used as vast in-situ formwork to cast a slab of connected interlocked concrete block paving. The cell formwork remains in the slab to serve as in-situ jointing.

    A few applications are :

    • Roads and paving
    • Canal liners and pond liners
    • Erosion protection of slopes

  • Cells may be up to 4 metres deep and may be used to reinforce in-situ granular fill by the action of confining it.
    • Earth dam walls
    • Harbour walls and retaining walls
    • Railway formation layers
    • Submerged artificial reefs

    Cells 2m deep

  • The cell mat may be filled with topsoil and vegetated for use as embankment erosion protection.
