Geogrids that are designed for applications where stress is applied in one direction such as wall reinforcement.
Geogrids are used almost/entirely for soil reinforcement. Their large aperture size limits their effectiveness as a filtration layer but their high tensile strength make them ideal for reinforcement applications such as base reinforcement and soft soil stabilization.
Geogrids are manufactured using application specific grades of polyolefin resins (high–density polyethylene or polypropylene). Depending upon manufacturing techniques and materials, geogrids can be designed to resist creep when subjected to high loads for long periods of time or resist high, short–term dynamic loads or moderate loads over longer periods of time.
Uniaxial geogrids are designed to endure stress in one direction. The ribs of this variety of geotextile tend to be thicker and the apertures are long narrow slits. This variety of grid tends to be stronger than biaxial, but can only be applied in situations where stresses occur in a single direction (unless two uniaxial grids are placed in opposite directions). Uniaxial geogrids are ideal for wall stabilization, retaining walls and temporary walls, or anywhere there is an abrupt grade change.
- Endures direction in one direction to reinforce walls and any application where there is a sudden grade change
- Stretched in production to reduce creep
- Has a high tensile load
- Withstands high PH levels and is composed of the same materials as ADS pipes for applications such as mining
- Produced by punching and drawing from a homogenous sheet
