Geocomposites

Geocomposites consist of one or more geosynthetics, specifically a geogrid, geotextile or geomembrane with another material. They enable installations to be quicker, easier and less labour-intensive by providing a combination of two geosynthetic products into one, removing processes from an installation.

Network Rail approval for E'GRID

E’GRID 3030L is approved by Network Rail with Certificate of Full Acceptance number PA05/05826.

To achieve this E’GRID underwent a vigorous auditing process, including having to provide justification for the product by demonstrating its monetary, safety and performance benefits to Network Rail.

E’GRID 3030L polypropylene biaxial geogrid features a large aperture, suited to reinforcing the railway ballast layer. This reduces ballast settlement and extends the time between subsequent maintenance work following ballast renewal. The reinforcing element is a Specific Condition of Network Rail acceptance, which requires CE Marking in accordance with BS EN 13250 for reinforcement materials used in contact with ballast.

The high tensile strength design of E’GRID is widely recognised as an effective method of stabilising ballast or soil through reinforcement. The high-strength polymer grid interlocks with the ballast or stone, confining the material to improve load dispersal and limit lateral movement under load.

Warner Brothers Studio

We helped Warner Brothers Studio and earthworks contractor Spadeoak to build new car parking areas as the land where they had previously built car parking on was being reclaimed for new buildings. Our MultiTrack 1000 nonwoven geotextile was laid on the formation to provide separation and filtration.

Hinkley Point C Nuclear Power Station haul road

Working with J. Murphy & Sons and Balfour Beatty we helped with the construction of a ten-kilometre haul road to support the first UK nuclear power station to be built in over 20 years. When complete, Hinkley Point C in Somerset will provide low-carbon electricity for around six million homes across the South West.
