Tensar® TriAx® Geogrid is an advanced product specifically designed for trafficked surfaces.
TriAx Geogrid’s multi-directional properties leverage triangular geometry, one of construction’s most stable and widely utilized shapes, to provide an enhanced level of in-plane stiffness. Its triangular structure, coupled with improved rib and junction geometry, offers the construction industry an improved alternative to conventional materials and practices.
TriAx Geogrid is manufactured from a punched polypropylene sheet oriented in multiple, equilateral directions to form its triangular apertures, resulting in high radial stiffness throughout the full 360 degrees. This feature yields a more efficient product that delivers optimal in-service stress transfer from the aggregate to the stabilizing geogrid.
For more than 30 years, Tensar International Corporation (Tensar) has been a leading developer and manufacturer of geogrid products for improving trafficked surfaces. Tensar® Biaxial (BX) Geogrid was the world’s first commercially available geogrid for civil engineering applications. This innovative technology has allowed owners, engineers and contractors to realize the primary benefits associated with geogrid in both paved and unpaved applications, such as:
- Optimizing the thickness of pavement components
- Extension of pavement service life
- Stabilization of soft ground conditions
