What is Tensar geogrid?

What is Tensar geogrid?

With its unique triangular structure, TriAx Geogrid represents a revolutionary advancement in geogrid technology. Its multi-directional properties leverage triangular geometry, one of construction’s most stable shapes, providing greater stability and stiffness.

What is Tensar TriAx?

Tensar TriAx Geogrid is designed specially to stabilise construction aggregate in larger projects. With this product you’re able to increase the bearing capacity of your project, reduce the excavation required on site and control the settlement of aggregate, keeping it all in the correct place for longer.

What is the difference between uniaxial and biaxial geogrid?

Biaxial geogrids are those that exhibit the same strength in both the machine and cross machine direc- tions while uniaxial geogrids exhibit the primary strength in the machine direction with minimal strength, enough to maintain the aperture structure, in the cross machine direction.

What is biaxial geogrid?

Biaxial geogrid is a type of geogrids. It is made from high polymer. Biaxial geogrid has high strength in both longitudinal and transverse direction. It is made through the process of extruding, sheet forming, punching and stretching. Biaxial geogrid has good bearing capacity.

What is the purpose of geogrid?

A geogrid is a geosynthetic material used to stabilize soil. Geogrids have openings, called apertures, which allow aggregate to strike through and provide confinement and interlock.

What is geogrid used for?

Geogrid is a flexible mesh that is used to create a reinforced coherent mass behind the retaining wall by stabilizing the soil. The stability of the soil depends greatly on the friction angle it contains. The friction angle is often referred to as the shear strength of the soil.

What is the difference between geotextile and geogrid?

Differences Between Geogrids and Geotextiles Geotextiles are manufactured for separation, filtration, and drainage purposes, whereas geogrids are specifically manufactured as a reinforcement material. However, the geotextile can allow the free movement of water from the soil into the aggregate layer, and vice versa.

What are the types of geogrid?

There are three different types of geogrids: Uniaxial, Biaxial, and Triaxial (Triax®). Each one is designed and manufactured for specific construction applications with various tensile strengths.

What is the purpose of road fabric?

Road Fabric is a permeable woven geotextile that allows water on the surface to flow through the gravel to the soil beneath, but is strong enough to reduce rutting and restrict subgrade soil particles from working up into the gravel surface (pumping).

What is a tensar BX geogrid?

Biaxial (BX) geogrid is Tensar’s original geogrid invention. This geogrid changed the game when it was first introduced for soil stabilization back in the 1980s. Since then, Tensar BX geogrids have been used for mechanical ground stabilization in over half a million projects worldwide.

How does Tensar biaxial ship?

Tensar Biaxial geogrid also ship from other regional warehouses depending on purchase location. Transit times displayed in the map are listed in business days, are approximate and are specific to the Tensar line. The day that the order is shipped is not counted as a transit day. Geogrid rolls ship via LTL freight.

What are BX geogrids?

Tensar BX Geogrids are created using precise blends of polypropylene, copolymers and additives to resist high, short-term dynamic loads or moderate loads over longer time periods. BX Geogrids have been used for mechanical ground stabilization in over half a million projects worldwide, including roads, reinforced foundations and working platforms.

What is the shelf life of Tensar geogrids?

Tensar Geogrids may be stored uncovered for up to six months in direct exposure to sunlight without any loss in certifiable structural properties (contact TI if longer exposure is anticipated). Tensar Geogrids may be stored vertically (rolls stood on end) or, typically, horizontally in stacks not exceeding five rolls high (Image 2).
