Yes, the GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System can be used in any type of soil or geological configuration. For sloped installations 10 percent or greater, we encourage you to contact our GEOHEX™ team on (02) 9603 5322 for specific advice on your installation and aggregate choice.

The GEOHEX™ pavers come in a standard size of 0.5sqm, however, there are embossed numeric measurements along the sides of the panel to be cut to size if required. Each GEOHEX™ paver weighs 2.3kg.

Yes, the GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System is very strong, and has a maximum load bearing capacity of 1,200 t/sqm when filled. This is far more than a standard semi-trailer truck for instance, which has a nominal wheel load of about 5/t.m2 per axle.

The GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System is non-toxic to humans, animals and plants and also non-reactive to solvents, oils, chemicals and water.

There is a small amount of flexibility in the GEOHEX™ pavers to allow for movement if you need to make minor adjustments or follow any ground contours.

While a local product is acceptable for infill, a coarse granulate material made up of a mix of size and grade that packs down into the matrix will deliver the best result. For roads, we recommend cracker dust, road base or limestone. Please note that aggregate larger than 15mm will not settle into the void.

The unique, hexagonal and non-porous design of the GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System means that water is captured in the soil which can then be diverted into storage and detention tanks. This lowers the amount of surface water runoff, meaning less soil erosion and allows rainwater to be used for secondary purposes.

The GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System stablises turf and ground areas, meaning there is a lot less potential for accidents to occur. It also minimises the risk of machinery or livestock getting bogged in muddy areas. By using the GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System in landscape applications, embankment subsidence and large movements of soil and rock can be easily prevented.

We recommend excavating down to a minimum of 200mm for all civil and mining applications, however, final excavation will need to be determined by the existing material in the installation area. For example, water soaked mud and very sandy soils will require a thicker base than solid clay or rock bases. We also recommend laying a 150mm compacted road base sub-layer prior to installing the GEOHEX™ pavers.

We recommend laying the GEOHEX™ pavers starting in one corner with the female lugs facing outward. Once you’ve determined the start point, lay the pavers in a grid pattern for strength and durability, and simply click into place.

Yes, the GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System can be used on sloped ground. For inclines greater than 10 percent we recommend the use of ground pins. Type 17 Bugle Head Screws, galvanised and a minimum of 300mm long can be screwed into the sub-grade without the need for hammering through the cell material.

For sloped installations greater than 10 percent we recommend you speak with our GEOHEX™ team for support on installation and aggregate choice for best results.

1m3 of aggregate will cover approximately 20sqm of Geohex.
