SOIL REINFORCEMENT - GEOGRIDS

WHAT ARE GEOGRIDS

Geogrids are a special type of geosynthetics and are utilized in civil designing to naturally support and stabilize the soil. Geogrids, interlock with aggregate and along these lines, shapes a composite.

Geogrids are made as openwork sheets, looking like an orthogonal grid with a significant degree of solidness, PolGrid geogrids do not have any intersections (it is a monolith).

WHAT IS A GEOSYNTHETIC?

A geosynthetic material is defined by the ISO 10318 Standard as a product of which one component is created from polymer(polyester, polypropylene, polyethylene, or nylon) has the type of a sheet,  strip, or spatial form and is used in contact with dirt (or other material) in geotechnical and structural designing activities.

APPLICATIONS OF POLGRID GEOGRIDS

ASPHALT OR TAR ROADS

PolGRid geogrids provide support to aggregate substrate layers, reinforces embankments and dykes, and as a geosynthetic layer underneath embankments.

 

RAILWAYS

Provides support to foundations of the railway tracks and reinforcement of rail line banks.

Geosynthetics is largely used in the construction of dirt roads. It is proven effective in preventing the formation of wheel ruts extending the life span of the road.

UNSEALED ROADS

TEMPORARY ACCESS AND PLATFORMS

PolGrid geogrid facilitates quick construction of embankments by providing reinforcement that accounts for the substandard layering and selection of fill materials.

SAVING OF COSTS AND TIME
  • The load-bearing limit of the construction is greatly improved by the placement of the geogrid which effectively blocks the aggregate and significantly reduces settlement. This geogrid increases the total strength of the construction and does not need any complicated preparatory earthwork, which reduces construction time. The subsequently improved load and pressure distribution in the road using geogrids effectively diminishes wheel ruts, even in bad soil situations.

EASY AND FAST INSTALLATION
  • Polgrid rolls are easily worked with by two persons due to the fact that the width of polgrid sheets has been specially adjusted to make them easier to handle.

  • This easy installation entails spreading the rolls of the geogrid on the provided soil substrate.

  • Geogrid with packed integrated nodes do not need pre-tensioning or anchoring, and they work promptly whenever they are spread on or underneath the aggregate layers.

  • Geogrids are well known for their durability and strength which ensures a significant reduction of installation damages.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SOLUTION
  • Due to the significant savings on the aggregate, using PolGrid geogrids shows a sizeable reduction in CO2 caused by structural developments.

  • The utilization of the PolGrid geogrids significantly extends the usage period of asphalt.

  • The PolGrid geogrids have shown high resilience to extreme weather conditions which lessen the road upkeep costs.
