Biaxial Geogrid | Multi-Axial Geogrid | Uniaxial Geogrid | Asphalt Interlayers
Geogrids are a category of geosynthetic and are used to provide the functions of: reinforcement, stabilization, and filtration. Learn more about how they are able to add to or enhance the functions of conventional materials to make construction more efficient, cost-effective, and reliable.
Soft Soils | Unpaved Roads | Working Platforms | Foundations
In almost any construction project, working on weak or soft soils presents considerable challenges for soil stabilization. Tensar’s technology and expertise of ground stabilization not only improves site performance, but is proven to reduce costs and environmental impact.
Soft Subgrades | Paved Roads | Pavement Optimization | Parking Lots & Large Paved Areas
Tensar's TriAx Geogrid paves the way to lower pavement construction costs by optimizing pavement components. Research indicates that use of TriAx can reduce asphalt layer thickness 15-30% and aggregate layer thickness 25-50%.
Control of Asphalt Cracking | Rehabilitation with Moisture Barrier Protection
Tensar's asphalt pavement solutions are a cost-effective and easy solution to extend the service life of asphalt overlay applications. Tensar offers two geosynthetic interlayer systems that improve the performance of asphalt layers in new construction and pavement rehabilitation.
Panel | Segmented Block | Wire-Form | Slope Retention | Temporary | Bridge Abutments
Tensar’s Grade Separation Solutions owe their long-term performance and durability to high strength Tensar® Uniaxial (UX) Geogrids. These geogrids are highly resistant to chemical or biological degredation and can be used with a wide variety of backfill materials.
