Reinforcement

Geogrids

Reduce your construction costs and time while achieving significant carbon savings with Wrekin biaxial geogrids.

Geogrids provide ground reinforcement, preventing soils from pulling apart under tension by allowing the force to be transferred to a larger area. They are ideally suited for use on haul roads, permanent roads, piling platforms, compounds and much more.

Creating a safe working environment in construction projects is of vital importance - but those initial site compounds and haul roads can have a big impact on resources for contractors, both at the project planning stage and when on site.

That’s where geogrids can prove their value as a costeffective, durable and easy-to-install method of reinforcement in groundworks, allowing force to be distributed over a larger area, reducing settlement and movement. They can reduce the thickness of haul roads and piling platforms, resulting in cost and time savings while supporting and protecting the local environment.

Our geogrids are used to reinforce soft, unstable soils and similar materials in subsoils below road structures, sub-bases and earth-retaining walls.

When granular fill is compacted over the grids, they partially penetrate and project through the apertures to create a strong and positive interlock. The load dispersal effect from the interlocking mechanism increases shearing resistance within the fill material, improving compaction and allowing the sub-base thickness to be decreased, ultimately reducing construction time and costs and increasing longevity.

Calculate your aggregate savings when using a Geoworks biaxial geogrid

Find out how much money and carbon you can save

When constructing a temporary road you can save money and decrease your carbon footprint. By using a Geoworks biaxial geogrid you could dramatically reduce the amount of aggregate required on your project.

Our easy-to-use calculator can give you an estimation of cost and carbon savings.

Network Rail track maintenance

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.

Bristol Airport, Silverzone Car Park

With both an increase in passenger numbers and volume of flights there was a need for the operators of Bristol Airport to undertake a range of improvements across the airport complex to cope with the growing demand. We were able to provide the necessary technical advice and provide a cost-effective alternative in place of the originally specified composite geogrid product.
