PET Uniaxial Geogrid
Geogrids are used for high strength applications such as retaining wall and embankment reinforcement.
Geogrids are open structures composed of pre-stressed, high strength bars, with excellent long term creep strengths. There are a number of different types of geogrids. Polyester (PET) type geogrids are made from a woven matrix of high tenacity polyester fibres that are coated with a protective polymer coating. The polyester fibres are oriented in one principle strength direction. Geogrid strengths can be very high, with design values of up to possible 200 kN/m (13,500 lbs per ft). The strength of a geogrid allows positive reinforcement of embankments, steep slopes, retaining walls and other vertical soil structures. Geogrids interlock with the soil providing long term reinforcement and are the most cost effective method of creating additional horizontal space. Polyester geogrids have extremely good long term creep performance.
