Heavy haul roads and access roads leading to and from areas such as mine operations, wind farms, oil drilling sites and landfills are subject to continuous heavy traffic resulting in severe deterioration if left untreated. Not only are there costs to maintaining these roads on a regular basis, but safety issues may also arise from poorly maintained roads.
Because of their ability to stabilize weak subgrades and reinforce roadway structures, geogrids, geotextiles and other geosynthetic materials can increase the performance and longer-term stability of haul roads and provide a smoother running surface.
From yards to haul roads to major roadways, Nilex’s geogrids provide a proven solution to base reinforcement and pavement optimization. Road structures can fail prematurely due to the lateral displacement and weakening of base course aggregate. The structural strength provided by Nilex’s...
Often poor subgrade soils do not possess the strength to support road construction activities and the subsequent intended traffic loads. Nilex’s roadway reinforcement and stabilization materials maximize load distribution and increase the effective bearing capacity of the subgrade to help...
The McKee Farms Development, a new single family home community in South Jordan, Utah, originally had great soil reports. Once they began to cut the road areas they discovered the California Bearing Ratio (CBR) values to be much worse than the original reports. The owner of the development...Read More

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.
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.
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.
The CULTEC system was simple to install. We will be recommending, and looking forward to using the Cultec system for future projects.
We love you guys for getting this project [Energy Environmental Experiential Learning (EEEL) Building Grounds] completed in the timelines required.
