CR49 How it Works 1080

 

How Do Geogrids Work?

A geogrid is a geosynthetic material used to stabilize soil. Today, more pavement designers are choosing to implement geogrids to improve the performance of the aggregate within pavement structures to combat increasing material costs, withstand increasing traffic loads and inadequate pavement structures created with traditional pavement sections. 

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. Tensar TriAx Geogrid is the highest performing geogrid on the market due to it's hexagonal apertures that allow it to distribute heavy loads over a wider area compared to other geogrids and geotextiles.

TriAx Geogrid Installation

Installation Steps

 

TX-Install-for-Roadways-1080

 

Our lightweight rolls are easy to handle and cut in the field. They make it simple to adapt to curves and utility projections. The biggest
advantage in installation – you can roll TriAxTensar-Outbound-Email-TriAx-Geogrid-Installation-Best-Practices 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.
