Secugrid® geogrids for Soil stabilisation and Soil Reinforcement
Soil stabilisation and soil reinforcement is necessary in many applications to make constructions work. For example geogrid reinforcement supports granular base courses in windfarms used for highly trafficked access roads and heavily loaded crane platforms. Geogrid reinforcement enables the construction of steep and tall retaining walls & slopes, embankments on soft soil, load transfer platforms on piles, traffic routes on weak soil: reinforcement makes the infrastructure more achievable. Importantly, the selection of a geogrid reinforcement is often how the engineering becomes safer, more economical, more efficient, longer lasting and more sustainable.
Geogrids absorb stresses by interacting (friction and interlocking) with the surrounding soil to make earth structures stronger and more durable against applied loads. But, as highly engineered products their polymeric composition, manufacturing method, stress-strain behaviour (stiffness), and other product characteristics determine their suitability for a design.
Secugrid® geogrids utilise first quality raw materials for highly-oriented polypropylene or polyester flat bars that are uniformly extruded and drawn to achieve a high modulus and high strength at low strain levels. Enhanced by NAUE’s patented welding technology, Secugrid® provides a structurally sound and stable geogrid for long-term performance in road and railway base reinforcement, retaining walls and slopes, veneer reinforcement, embankments, load transfer platforms over piles, and other challenging applications.
