Geogrid is used in numerous civil engineering related applications to reinforce soils. It has high tensile strength which allows it to transfer forces across a larger area of soil than otherwise would be the case. There are three types; uniaxial, biaxial, and triaxial. Each of these are suited for specific applications which are highlighted in each explanation of the different types.

Uniaxial Geogrid

As the name suggests, this type of geogrid is strong in the longitudinal direction. “Strength is in the length’ and it should be rolled out perpendicular to the wall or slope you are working with.

Geogrid

Uniaxials are used to help soils stand at virtually any desired angle; from 0 to 90 degrees. They can be combined with a wide variety of facing elements in retaining wall and slope applications to produce the desired structural or aesthetic conditions for any project.

Biaxial Geogrid

For this type, a polymer sheet is punctured and then stretched in both directions. As a result, its tensile strength is equal in the transverse and longitudinal directions.

Geogrid

It is suitable for various applications such as embankment reinforcement, wall reinforcement, soil stabilization, slope protection and other permanent load bearing foundation reinforcement.

Triaxial Geogrid 

This innovative product is made from high-density polyethylene and takes advantage of the unique load bearing properties of triangles. When arranged in a triangular grid, the geogrid is able to bear loads in all directions. This kind of geogrid can greatly enhance the load bearing capabilities of asphalt pavement and can greatly reduce the thickness of the layer of asphalt required. 

Geogrid

This triangular structure can provide an enhanced bearing system, which can reduce the thickness of layers. For example, the application of triaxial geogrid in asphalt pavement can greatly reduces the layer of asphalt. It performs well in the reinforcement of soft soil, roadbed, subgrade and retaining wall.
