Geogrids

Geogrid products are geosynthetic materials used to reinforce soils, asphalt and similar materials. Geogrids are often used to reinforce the foundation or sub-foundation under roads or structures as well as retaining walls. Compared to soil, geogrids are strong in tension. This increases the bearing capacity of the soil by allowing the forces on the soil to transfer over a wider area and by meeting the incoming stresses. Geogrids are usually made of polymer materials such as polyester, polyvinyl alcohol, polyethylene or polypropylene. Geogrids can be woven or knitted from threads, heat welded from strips of material or laser welded.
