Grid structure provides soil reinforcement for all civil engineering projects including environmental, infrastructure and marine applications.
Abgrid biaxial geogrid can be used in a wide range of civil engineering applications such as basal reinforcement, ground stabilisation, aggregate reduction, piling platforms and foundation engineering in paved and unpaved roads and temporary works.
- Railway and Highway base course reinforcement
- Steep sided soil embankments
- Slope stabilisation
- Retaining walls
- Load transfer platforms
- Void spanning
- Easy to handle
- Reduces sub-base thickness
- Reduces site vehicle traffic
- Minimises surface rutting
Abgrid geogrid is manufactured from extruded polypropylene which is then punched and then drawn to form a monolithic geogrid with strength in two planes (biaxial).
The combination of ribs and the corresponding nodes within the geogrid allows loads to be transferred into the geogrid structure whilst allowing a positive interlock of the reinforced materials through the apertures of the geogrid.
Abgrid biaxial geogrid offers high tensile stiffness at low strains combined with excellent resistance to damage coocuring to the geogrid during the construction process or environmental exposure.
Abgrid biaxial geogrid offer savings across the project. Abgrid geogrid is quick and simple to install and the use of Abgrid geogrid may facilitate a reduction in the required fill.
