Géogom is available as calibrated sheets of tyre rubber that are used in public works as both backfill and light embankment.
Backfill: by filling, Géogom makes it possible to level or raise land that will be obliged to support heavy use: a rail network, traffic routes, buildings, superstructures, etc.
Light embankment: this type of work aims to limit excessive loads on ground or surfaces susceptible to compacting. It must therefore be composed of a lightweight material that is easy to use in earthmoving works. Géogom is thus suitable as much for backfill on compressible ground as it is for projects to relieve lateral constraints.
