SKU GRC-BXG110-13X246

Geogrid for Road Construction is the ideal solution for reinforcing paved roads and aggregate roadways.
The hard polypropylene plastic is tough and made to prevent aggregates and soil material from moving which enables a longer lasting road with less maintenance required.

This geogrid is commonly used by municipalities and private construction companies all over the world for new road construction.
This geogrid is biaxial and is engineered to be durable resisting any biological breakdown from naturally occurring in-ground chemicals, acids, and alkalis.

PRODUCT SUMMARY

  • Reinforcement Strength: High tensile modulus properties per ASTM D6637 for base reinforcement applications. For structures with dynamic short-term loadings, Mirafi® BXG geogrids offer high strength at low strain and are designed for maximum bearing capacity and shear resistance.
  • True biaxial strengths: Mirafi ® BXG geogrids are biaxial grids that exhibit high tensile strength in both longitudinal and transverse directions, making them suitable for base course reinforcement and soil stabilization applications.
  • Durability: Superior damage resistance from moderate to severe stress installations.
  • Soil Interaction: Superior soil confinement resulting in greater load distribution. A combination of grid structure and polymers create optimum soil-grid interaction.
  • Seams: Panels can be sewn together in the factory or field, providing cross-roll direction strength to facilitate installation

PRODUCT INFORMATION  - TENCATE MIRAFI BXG GEOGRIDS:


APPLICATIONS

Mirafi BXG geogrids deliver strength, long-term performance, reliability and quick installation for base reinforcement for paved roads, construction haul roads, foundation reinforcement, working platforms on weak subgrades, and secondary reinforcement for soil retaining structures.

FUNCTIONS

Confinement - The ability of a geosynthetic to restrain lateral movement from a soil or aggregate through friction or mechanical interlock.

Soil Reinforcement - The synergistic improvement of a total system’s strength created by the introduction of a reinforcing geosynthetic (that is good in tension) into a soil and/or aggregate system (that is good in compression but poor in tension).

Philadelphia Produce Market Reinforcement

The Philadelphia Regional Produce Market had absolutely no room for expansion which could cost Pennsylvania losing one of its most historic sites. Being in business for approximately 4 generations, they employ around 1,500 people and is one of the largest produce markets in the United States. The produce market provides food as far north as Canada and south to North and South Carolinas in the U.S.

The Challenge

Located in Brownfield, the site was originally a combination of 5 junk and scrap yards.  To clear out the site they had to remove over 400,000 tires and scrap metal including automobiles, trailers, and buses.

The challenge was to construct a roadway over very soft soil on the 63-acre site. The surface would have to be strong enough to support tractor-trailers for the 228 enclosed truck bays within the 667,000-square-foot facility.

The Design

Due to the very poor soil on the site, the engineer decided they needed a base reinforcement to support the heavy truck loads on a daily basis.  Mirafi® BXG11 Base Reinforcement Geogrid was chosen for its incredible strength at low tensile strain.

Construction 

Building over the soils proved to be a challenge unto itself due to the low California Bearing Radio strength values. On top of that, Hurricane Bill was racing up the eastern coast and depositing several inches of rain over the site for 3 solid days. By using Mirafi® BXG11, the contractor was able to keep the site on the set work schedule and not lose any production.  Despite the severe weather conditions, construction was much faster and easier than expected.  It only took two construction workers to place the geogrid rolls while dump trucks and bulldozers placed recycled concrete base course in 12-inch lifts for the parking areas and 16 inches for the truck lanes and loading duct areas.

The Results

Without  Mirafi® BXG11, the owners would have faced significant costs for excavating and replacing the sub-base materials.  Mirafi® BXG11 helped keep the project on schedule and moving forward. With these new buildings in place, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania now has 175 new jobs and the Philadelphia Regional Product Market will continue to prosper and grow into the future.
