About Tensar TriAx Geogrid
Tensar TriAx geogrid is the most advanced geogrid on the market resulting from 30 years of continual innovation and development. This geogrid will outperform traditional biaxial geogrids and significantly lower time and costs.
The Tensar TriAx is a triangle structure that will give you adequate, stable results. Biaxial geogrids have built-in strength in two directions. This multi-direction geogrid offers excellent stability and will increase bearing capacity.
Due to its improved rib geometry and junction, Tensar TriAx geogrid will give you capabilities for improved aggregate interlock and confinement for improved structural performance of the mechanically stabilized layer.
Testing included trafficking trials performed at the University of Nottingham and on a full scale at the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), the Building Research Association (BRE), as well as in-house at Tensar's Technology Center. The work showed improvement in performance in comparison to traditional biaxial geogrid. This work was magnified by field trials and demonstrations to ensure this geogrid will offer great benefits from its performance.
Due to its improved rib geometry and junction abilities it has improved aggregate interlock and confinement allowing Tensar TriAx geogrid to provide an improved structural performance of the mechanically stabilized layer.
Applications For Road And Highways
Tensar TriAx geogrids have provided the best solution for pavement reinforcement on road and highway projects and increased the life of the pavement. Geogrids will reduce pavement thickness by one-third without impacting performance which, in turn, will lower installation and maintenance costs. The system can be distributed quickly, making it perfect for building temporary access or unsealed roads over soft ground or for heavy vehicle loads. TriAx geogrids deliver excellent savings and performance over biaxial geogrids.
Geogrid Can be Used for Road Projects
Railway geogrids will improve bearing capacity on railway projects and will stabilize the rail ballast and track bed to improve performance. It also limits the movement and displacement of the rail ballast so there will be less maintenance involved over the lifetime of the railway line.
Tensar TriAx TX190 large aperture geogrids are extensively used with rail ballasts and are supported by international rail research. Using Tensar TriAx as a part of your rail track solution can decrease the amount of foundation material needed up to 30%, delivering real cost savings in construction.
TriAx Geogrid Installation
Airport And Heavy-Duty Pavements
Tensar TriAx geogrids are used for construction working platforms for airport pavements and hardstand areas, especially where the ground is soft. The layers form a stiff pole that spreads heavy loads over large areas, reducing differential settlement. In some cases, two or three layers of geogrid may be needed.
Tensar TriAx geogrid's interlocking structure offers greater strength and endurance. It offers outstanding performance which is supported by extensive traffic trials in the UK. Using Tensar TriAx geogrids will save on costs regarding sub-base and aggregate requirements.
Tensar TriAx geogrids will triple the load capacity on road and highway projects. This product is easily distributed and is available nationwide. Tensar geogrids are cost-effective and have proven performance records in the United States.
Installing Tensar TriAx geogrids is straightforward as the geogrid can be easily rolled out directly over the subgrade after the removal of major protrusions such as rocks and tree stumps. Standard road aggregates are used with Tensar TriAx geogrids for construction. For temporary or permanent roads and highways, working platforms, and gravel raft foundations.
