What are Geogrids?

Geogrids are a category of geosynthetic that are used to provide the functions of reinforcement, stabilization, or filtration. Tensar mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) systems feature reinforcement with strong and durable Tensar® Uniaxial (UX) Geogrids. Made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), UX Geogrids have proven resistant to chemical, biological and environmental degradation, including hydrolysis. Tensar HDPE Geogrids do not degrade from long-term exposure to water, can be installed in high or low pH soils and can resist attack from most chemicals that may enter the backfill soils that support rail lines. In addition to the geogrids’ durability, their open aperture structure promotes excellent soil drainage with no buildup of pore water pressure from clogging.
