Subgrade Stabilization

Introduction

Often poor subgrade soils do not possess the strength to support road construction activities and the subsequent intended traffic loads. Nilex’s subgrade separation and stabilization geosynthetic materials maximize load distribution and increase the effective bearing capacity of the subgrade to help provide a stable foundation layer from which a permanent or temporary road/working platform can be built.

Including Nilex’s geogrid and geotextile products in roadway design improves the subgrade support – and ultimately the lifespan of the structure – by reducing and spreading the stress on the weak subgrade.

Subgrade Stabilization Products

Biaxial (BX) Geogrids - USA

Biaxial Geogrids improve the structural integrity of roadways by confining and distributing load forces. Geogrids provide support for the construction of access roads, highways and applications on weak subgrades that previously required expensive over-excavating and replacing. Geogrids are also...

EnviroGrid cellular confinement system (geocell)

The EnviroGrid cellular confinement system (geocell) is produced from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and has three dimensional cells that contain, confine and reinforce a variety of fill materials including native fill, topsoil, granular or concrete. This material has excellent resistance to...

Nonwoven Geotextiles - USA

Nonwoven Geotextiles have a wide range of applications in civil environmental engineering and construction projects. Their uses include...

Woven and High Strength Woven Geotextiles - USA

Nilex Woven and High Strength Woven Geotextiles are often used for separation and stabilization in the construction of roads. The woven geotextile’s separation action prevents the mixing of dissimilar soils allowing each soil layer in the road structure to function as intended. The high...

Testimonials

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.

Bob T, Project Manager, MGP Construction Ltd.

Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.

Jim B, C.E.T., Senior Project Manager, WSP Canada Inc.

Nilex was an invaluable asset in the successful completion of the Troutbrooke Drive Slope Stabilization project in Toronto, by providing engineering assistance, installation training and continuous on and off site technical support.
