Tensar’s BX & TX Geogrids have Unparalleled Performance in Ground Stabilization and Sub-Base Reinforcement

Site Supply offers several different Geogrids, and will team with you to determine exactly what is the best solution for your particular site challenge. Tensar® TriAx Geogrids differ from other geogrids due to their unique triangular structure which delivers advantages in a multitude of stabilization applications. The multidirectional stiffness of these geogrids surpasses that of others. They are designed for superior aggregate interlock and stress transfer, which results in stiffer aggregate layers and greater subgrade protection. The Tensar® TriAx Geogrid delivers longer road life, reduced pavement maintenance, and lower construction costs. Tensar® TriAx and BX Geogrids have demonstrated their effectiveness and cost-efficiency in thousands of applications. Over soft ground, TriAx and BX Geogrids enhance the soil’s effective bearing capability by dispersing applied loads more broadly. Over firmer ground, geogrids stiffen and interlock with fill materials by confining aggregate particles inside of its apertures, thus producing a stronger component for enhanced serviceability and more supportive aggregate layers beneath pavements. These mechanics allow for TriAx Geogrids to lowers overall construction costs by reducing the required aggregate and asphalt layers by up to 50%. TriAx Geogrids also reduce lifecycle costs by extending the life of pavement structures up to 500%. The reduced maintenance on pavement structures will save you a tremendous amount of time and money.

Roadways & Parking Lots

A layer of TriAx geogrid can reduce just enough aggregate/asphalt material in your pavement section to pay for itself and give you up to 40% added service life. There is no other way to gain this level of return on your investment. Give us a call today to learn how!

Also, geogrids present considerable cost and time savings when weak or variable soils are present during roadway and parking lot construction. From haul roads to highways, geogrid technology is a demonstrated solution to ground stabilization difficulties, improving pavement life, and minimizing the cost for repair and rehabilitation. All this enables you to control construction expenses and build in superior performance life to your roads.

Oil and Gas

Geogrids can be used to build stronger haulroads that offer access to remote oil and gas sites. In addition, geogrids can be used to strengthen aggregate sections of well pads and working platforms for cranes and other heavy equipment. Overall, Geogrids are effective in reducing both construction time and expense by as much as 50% resulting from less excavation, less fill materials, and comparatively uncomplicated installation.

 

Landfill Capping

Ash Pond Capping

As you know, capping ash ponds takes extreme care during construction because of the unpredictability nature of ash. This is where Tensar® geogrids come in to play. Tensar geogrids provide the factor of safety you are looking for as you spread and place fill over existing dry or wet ash ponds during capping operations, and allow you to keep constructing in areas when you typically would have to phase your operations due to excessive pore water pressures.  BX & TX Geogrids can provide support for capping construction on municipal and ash landfills. For landfill capacity enlargement, a newly constructed landfill is frequently placed over old waste material.  Geogrid reinforcement makes it possible for the base liner of the new landfill to maintain its integrity.  Give Site Supply a call today to learn more about how Tensar® geogrids can safely speed up your capping operations over ash ponds!
