Techcell is the 3D-Honeycomb like cellular confinement system created, manufactured and distributed by TECHFAB INDIA Industries Ltd made from High Density Polyethylene stabilized with carbon black which has higher tensile strength and stiffness. Techcell is more durable over time and is available in different size depending upon weld spacing of cell available in various depths.
Techcell is used for soil confinement, stabilization and reinforcement in wide variety of load support application, slope erosion control application.
Techcell spreads on the ground, at required level, and soil is placed within the expanded cells. With applied loads, soil tries to spread laterally, and causes lateral stresses, which are taken care by resistance on the cell-soil interface, by Techcell three-dimensional confinement. These will increase the shear strength of the confined soil, and increase load carrying capacity. With the infill granular material and holes in Techcell wall, it enhances drainage and releases pore water pressure.
Techcell cellular confinement improves moduli of infill materials, while increasing the bearing capacity of the structural pavement layers of load support.
Enhanced Structural Performance - Techcell cellular confinement improves moduli of infill materials, while increasing bearing capacity of the structural pavement layers of load support.
Easy and Faster Installation - Techcell folded sections are delivered to site and installation can be performed by inexperience work crew and deployment is easy and fast in all weather conditions.
Cost Effective - Techcell installation, reduced infill requirements and extended life span result in saving in time, equipment, manpower and cost during construction, while structure that last longer and require less operating and maintenance cost over the project life span.
Longer Service Life - Techcell dimensional stability and fatigue resistance under loading, stress and extreme environmental conditions aligns structure life span with long-term engineering standard.
Increased sustainability - Techcell enables use of local non-cohesive fill, granular soil instead of expensive base layer aggregate. This lowers initial cost as well as the environmental impact of importing aggregates.
