IECA Booth #301

Geosynthetics 2020 Booth #525

Presto’s GEOWEB 3D soil confinement system offers flexible solutions for challenging soil stabilization problems. The 3D system strengthens and transforms fill material, improving performance in a variety of applications. For controlling erosion, the GEOWEB system’s 3D cellular structure stabilizes the upper soil layer on slopes to resist sliding and prevent surface runoff erosion. In channel designs, the system controls stormwater and replaces expensive riprap and reinforced concrete with vegetation and poured-in-place concrete. Vegetated gravity and reinforced GEOWEB retaining walls are designed for natural aesthetics and to meet green initiatives. Using the GEOWEB system to build roads with onsite, low-quality fill reduces cost and installation time.

Presto offers free project evaluations, fast and easy specification tools, and engineering consultation.

HDPE GEOWEB. Strength and Flexibility Perfected.
