Systems Overview

It is vitally important to correctly specify and install geosynthetics. This cannot be overstated and can potentially be critical to the performance of the system specified and the overall success of the project. 

The appropriate system selection criteria should be considered at the early stages of the project design, as some applications will require a combination of functionalities.


The use of geotextiles within the construction and landscaping sectors has become fundamental in solving an increasingly diverse range of global geotechnical and environmental problems.

The primary benefit of using geotextiles within the built environment is to enhance the performance, and design life, of the development. 

Traditionally, typical applications for geotextiles have included soil reinforcement, ground stabilisation, filtration, drainage, protection and erosion control. 

However, the need for more diverse and innovative geotextile applications across all sectors has been created due to the ongoing impact of climate change and the requirement to deliver sustainable development.


Terram geocompsites are used as direct replacements for conventional granular drainage materials.

These prefabricated drainage products usually consist of at least two different components, a three dimensional polymer core which as acts as the drainage medium and a geotextile filter fabrics which allows liquids to enter the core but prevents the surrounding fill from washing in and clogging the core.

Varying the core, the specification and type of filter fabric, along with the ability to incorporate other polymer based geosynthetics such as geomembranes allows Terram geocomposites to be engineered to suit very specific and unique requirements.


Terram Geocells, Cellular Confinement Systems, consist of a three dimensional geotextile ‘honeycomb’ structure which provides soil stabilisation across a wide variety of applications. 

The strong and flexible geotextile cell structure confines the fill material thus restricting down-slope migration in slope applications, provides even load distribution on paved and unpaved areas and ensures a stable base when used over soft subgrades.

Terram Geocells provide a cost effective solution for many soil stabilisation applications as they are easy to handle and install, economical, strong and require low or zero maintenance.
