Abgrid Geogrid

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.

Grid structure provides soil reinforcement for all civil engineering projects including environmental, infrastructure and marine applications.

Applications

  • Railway and Highway base course reinforcement
  • Steep sided soil embankments
  • Slope stabilisation
  • Retaining walls
  • Load transfer platforms
  • Void spanning

Benefits

  • 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 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 against damage occurring to the geogrid during the construction process or from environmental exposure.

Abgrid biaxial geogrid offers savings across the project and is quick and simple to install. The use of Abgrid geogrid also facilitates a reduction in the required fill.

Typical Client Profile

  • Highway Engineers & Contractors
  • Highways Authorities
  • Airport Engineers
  • Local Authority Planning Depts
