INTRODUCTION

Nilex’s engineered road and rail improvement systems make the construction of roads, highways, pads, runways, yards and light to heavy Class 1 rail structures and intermodal facilities more economical. When compared to traditional construction methods, Nilex’s systems significantly reduce the amount of natural aggregate required while increasing structural performance. Structures built with Nilex geosynthetic products cost less, are faster to build, last longer and minimize environmental impact.

ROADS AND RAIL APPLICATIONS

All pavements will wear out over time, even those constructed on firmer subgrades; however, Nilex can help to significantly extend the design life of your pavement structures while lowering construction costs and reducing the amount of aggregate and asphalt used versus conventional construction...

The required aggregate layer thickness of unpaved surfaces - particularly in heavy equipment yards and industrial working areas - is primarily dependent on axle loads, vehicle passes and subgrade strength. Weak subgrades combined with heavy wheel loads and intense traffic will cause unpaved...

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...

Stormwater management is critical to ensure the long-term success of our roadways. Proper drainage of a roadway creates a safe driving environment by minimizing roadside ponding and sheeting. Nilex’s prefabricated drains provide maximum drainage capacity with a minimum need for trenching and...

The American Railway Engineering and Maintenance of Way Association (AREMA) has recognized the value of geogrid technology for trackbed stabilization by including a chapter on geogrid in its 2010 Manual for Railway Engineering. Several factors including, but not limited to, car weights, car...
