INTRODUCTION

For all classes of railways Nilex’s geogrids provide a proven solution to ballast reinforcement and optimization. Structures can fail prematurely due to the lateral displacement and weakening of the ballast fouling. The structural strength provided by Nilex’s geogrid products can allow for the installation of thinner ballast sections, or the improved performance of conventionally designed structures.

BALLAST STABILIZATION & OPTIMIZATION PRODUCTS

Biaxial Geogrids improve the structural integrity of roads and railways and Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) Walls and Slopes by confining and distributing load forces. Geogrids provide support for the construction of access roads, highways and applications on weak subgrades that previously...

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

NEW - TriAx TX8 Geogrid Now AvailableTriAx Geogrid is a revolutionary product from Tensar. The triangular structure of TriAx Geogrid, coupled with the increased rib thickness and junction efficiency, greatly improves aggregate interlock and confinement – leading to optimal structural...

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...
