Geogrids are flexible, synthetic meshes which are manufactured specifically for slope stabilization and earth retention. These “grids” are available in a variety of materials, sizes and strengths. They can be made of high tensile strength plastics or woven polyester yarns and are typically packaged at the factory in rolls.
Types of Geogrids
Syntec SBx Biaxial Geogrid
Syntec SBx Biaxial geogrids are specially designed to provide a quick, long-term solution to stabilizing and strengthening roads and worksites, and reducing the thickness of aggregate base layers. SBx geogrids confine stone and soil particles to prevent lateral shearing. Vehicular and equipment loads are spread over a much broader surface area, reducing the pressure applied to the subgrade.
Syntec UX Uniaxial Geogrid
Syntec UX Uniaxial geogrids are designed to carry high tensile loads over a sustained period of time. These types of loads are common to reinforce soil slopes and mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls or berms. UX geogrids also can be used for high-strength soil reinforcement.
Syntec MG Biaxial Geogrid
Syntec MG Biaxial Geogrids are integrally formed biaxial geogrids designed for use in underground mining and tunnel applications that require rib control, soft bottom reinforcement, or soil stabilization.
