Cost-effective reinforcement

SX Grid

SX Grid is a biaxial geogrid with a 50-year design life that provides a cost-effective solution to solve pavement problems by providing omni-axial reinforcement to granular sub-bases, capping layers and railway ballasts in areas of weak or variable soils.

SX Grid biaxial geogrid installation

SX Grid allows granular particles to be compacted over them, partially penetrating and projecting through the apertures. This creates a strong and positive interlock, this interlocking mechanism increases shearing resistance within the soil, improving compaction and allowing the sub-base thickness to be decreased while allowing loads to be dispersed.

SX Grid comes as stand in 5.2m roll widths. For haul road applications this can often completely eliminate the need for overlaps across the width of the road, significantly reducing wastage. With SX Grid you can reduce construction time, costs and even CO2e.

Applications for SX Grid

SX Grid is a versatile biaxial geogrid, providing strong reinforcement to weak sub-bases across a wide variety of applications.

Compounds and haul roads

Achieve an economical design with rapid delivery and reduced costs on your compound or haul road.

Compounds and haul roads

Car parks

Whether paved or unpaved, the interlocking mechanism provided by SX Grid will increase performance with lower upfront and whole-life costs.

The economical geogrid

Use less rolls on every project

SX Grid provides an economical and eco-friendly solution. Most geogrids are available in 4m roll widths, this results in rolls having to be overlapped and pined together, doubling labour, cost and shipping. The SX Grid range is available in roll 5.2m wide rolls.

This means SX Grid reduces the number of overlaps required compared to alternatives. A reduction in overlaps not only enhances the integrity of the solution by reducing the number of potential weaker points, but can significantly reduce installation time, saving on labour and plant costs.

This also happens to be the most economical method to ship geogrids to site. The added benefits of this includes reduced CO2, maximising the space available when shipping, meaning more can be transported in less space, reducing environmental impacts. The carbon reductions don’t just stop there, wider rolls means fewer trucks on the road delivering geogrid to site.

E'GRID reduces thicknesses of compounds and haul roads
Achieve significant savings

Reduce your projects carbon emissions

Our geogrids can play a significant role in reducing carbon emissions across a project. There's numerous ways this is achieved, including:

  • By reducing the amount of earthworks required on-site before the grids go into the ground. This reduces the amount of plant required, and their associated emissions.
  • Reducing the thickness of a haul road, compound or similar. This thickness is created with aggregate which requires extraction, processing, and transport. By minimising the aggregate you will significantly reduce embodied carbon. Our geogrids can provide equivalent load-bearing capabilities to sub-bases twice as thick, providing aggregate savings of up to 50%.
  • Minimising the likelihood of repairs. Geogrids provide reinforcement, leading to higher quality, stronger sub-bases, which can result in longer-lasting and harder-wearing installations, requiring less repairs and maintenance.

Combined geogrid and geotextile

Have you considered SX Composite?

Achieve time savings when acquiring materials and overall quicker installations, thanks to SX Composite, an all-in-one solution that performs as both a biaxial geogrid and a geotextile. SX Composite consists of nonwoven geotextile thermally bonded to our popular SX range of geogrid. It provides the functions of reinforcement, separation and filtration into one single product, rather than having to use two separate solutions, which offers significant savings.
