Soil Instability and Erosion Solved

Feb 17, 2022

Soil erosion and soil stability can be an issue in Western Australia particularly in rural areas. Civil and General Distributors now supply the GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System.

Designed and manufactured in Australia to ISO9001:2014 standards, this unique and innovative ground stabilisation technology is easy and quick to install and can be used to:

  • manage water runoff,
  • assist with slope stabilisation and sediment control,
  • prevent drainage and hydraulic erosion,
  • rehabilitate industrial and mining sites, and
  • control and manage storm water drainage to prevent flooding and other drainage issues.

GEOHEX™ is a permeable ground stabilisation technology engineered for use in multiple applications. It is used to help stabilise infill material, mitigate erosion, control shearing (lateral and vertical movement) in a wide range of soil and substrate types. 

With a load rating of 1,200 tonnes per square metre when filled, the GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System is a safe and cost effective substitute for concrete in many applications. Made from high impact resistant, 100% recycled co-polymer polypropylene, it is environmentally friendly and its lightweight design reduces logistic costs.
