Road structures can fail prematurely due to lateral displacement and weakening of base course aggregate through the intrusion of fine soil particles. Geogrids and geotextiles enhance base course performance resulting in reduced aggregate thickness, increased road service-life or a combination of the two. The reduced aggregate thickness can also result in significant cost savings.
Biaxial (BX) Geogrids
Biaxial Geogrids provide true base reinforcement through mechanical interlock and confinement, a process where the granular particles partially penetrate the apertures of the geogrid and lock into place as the material is compacted.
TriAx Geogrids harness the multi-directional properties of triangular geometry to provide a new level of in-plane, radial stiffness. With its square-edged rib shape and deeper rib profile TriAx confines aggregate to form a stabilized composite layer.
Nonwoven Geotextiles contribute to road structure strength by providing separation between the base course aggregate and underlying, weaker soils.
