This strategy saves time and reduces costs for roadway projects.
Learn how TriAx cuts material costs and speeds construction.
In almost any construction project, working on weak or soft soils presents considerable challenges. And, you have options. You can over-excavate and import fill, but that gets expensive quickly. You can lay down a layer of fabric and aggregate fill, but if the soil is too soft, installation may be impossible. Chemical stabilization requires ideal weather and lengthy curing times. So, what do you do? Geogrid is proven to be the most efficient method to stabilize soils in all types of conditions. Learn how geogrid can reduce costs, speed construction and ultimately make your roadway projects more profitable.
Common methods like over-excavation and chemical stabilization are actually costing you more than you realize. In this chart, we compare the pros and cons of several soil stabilization techniques and how much aggregate is required. How does your current method stack up? Click the chart above to compare.

Tensar’s TriAx Geogrid improves site performance by stabilizing poor soils more efficiently. Here's the benefits you can expect on your next project:
Faster Installation: Less aggregate to install means there's less undercutting, backfilling, and disposal. Also, no skilled labor or specialized equipment are required for installation. With less to do, you can expect faster installation, often shaving weeks off construction schedules.
TriAx Geogrid can be installed in all types of weather, unlike other methods that have specific temperature and moisture requirements and long curing times.

Webinar: Subgrade Stabilization Basics
This course presents the fundamental concepts of Subgrade Stabilization using geogrids and other geosynthetics. Guidance for design and a discussion of performance and specification criteria are also discussed.
Evaluate Soils Strength with DCP Testing
A geogrid is a geosynthetic material used to stabilize soil. Today, more contractors are choosing geogrids to improve the performance of the aggregate within pavement structures, combat increasing material costs, and save significant time on projects.
How do geogrids work? Geogrids have openings, called apertures, which allow aggregate to strike through and provide confinement and interlock. Geogrids can improve the long-term performance of paved and unpaved roadways by minimizing aggregate movement and maintaining modulus values.
Due to its ability to efficiently confine aggregate, TriAx Geogrid reduces the required aggregate thickness while improving the overall performance.
At Tensar International, finding solutions that lower construction costs and bring added value is our top priority. That’s why we put our experts to work, showing engineers and contractors around the world how to build smarter infrastructure using geogrid technology. With decades of research and real-world experience under our belt, our geogrid solutions bring significant cost and time savings across a wide range of civil applications like:
Soil Stabilization | Pavement Optimization | Foundations
Working Platforms | Walls and Slopes
We're proud to offer state-of-the-art design solutions – specialty solutions based on advanced technologies proven since 1982. Tested in the most challenging conditions, these comprehensive solutions save time, resources and money. They’ve become the standard by which others are measured.
Our lightweight rolls are easy to handle and easy to cut in the field. They make it simple to adapt to curves and utility projections. The biggest
advantage in installation – you can roll Tensar TriAx Geogrids out onto the subgrade and walk on them, even in the weakest soil conditions. Adjacent rolls of Tensar Geogrids normally don’t require any connection, since aggregate fill simultaneously interlocks with overlapping geogrid apertures. A simple overlap is sufficient and no sewing is required. Watch our video to see just how easy installation can be. Or, you can download our installation guide for full details.
