Geogrid materials are materials that have high tensile and low creep properties by having square or rectangular voids on them. Although geogrid is used in soil reinforcement applications due to its material properties, it also has been used extensively in geosynthetic reinforced walls in recent years. Geogrid application can be used in a wide variety of places.
Geogrids are an important geosynthetic material. Because a special process is applied. Filling material is laid on the geogrid. In that way, geogrid pores are interlocked with the material used. The filling aterial, which is clamped inside the geogrid, which has a highly durable structure, creates a reinforced ground. Geogrids offer both economical and healthy solutions in civil engineering. For this reason, they are also called geotechnical engineering when used as a civil engineering project.
Additionally, geogrids produced from different raw materials such as polyester, polypropylene and polyethene have different friction coefficients according to the raw material from which they are produced and today, it is used on highways, railways and many projects.
Geogrid Properties and Advantages
Geogrid has been produced by Geobera for many years with its high-resistance polyester yarns. It is the product of combining product technology with a high degree of expertise. The products are prepared thanks to advanced weaving technology. After that the product is covered with PVC for easy processing.
Main advantages of geogrids may be listed as follows;
- It offers long-lasting engineering solutions.
- It is economical compared to reinforced concrete systems.
- It does not interfere with the growth of plants.
- It is environmentally friendly.
- It has high wear resistance.
- It is resistant to the harmful effects of UV rays.
- Geogrids are easy to manufacture and install. It is a light, easily transportable and foldable material.
- The application is both easy and fast.
- Geogrids can be made from different types of raw materials thanks to their properties and production flexibility.
Geogrid Usage Areas
Being polymer materials, geogrid products have high strength and rigidity, low creep capacity, mesh openings of 10 mm and 100 mm. Geogrid materials can be produced as elongated elliptical, rounded, angular, square or rectangular shaped eyes. “Usage areas of geogrid materials” can be listed as follows;
- Unpaved roads,
- Railway constructions,
- Reinforcement of landfills,
- Embankment dams,
- Reinforced wall constructions,
- Gabion making,
- Reinforcement between pile caps,
- Broken or cracked rocks,
- Covering over swampy ground,
- Reclamation of the ground in eroded areas,
- Asphalt – concrete reinforcement,
- Base buffs,
- Improvement of weak soils,
- Road embankments,
- Geogrid retaining wall.
Geogrid Installation and Costs
After all the technical details required for the production of the geogrid retaining wall installation are prepared by project teams, the lines are determined with the expert application teams in the field and the product is manufactured completely with the correct application technique. In cases where the employer wants to implement the application within its own body, professional support should be provided for the most accurate production of the geogrid reinforced retaining walls, which companies design and project, by providing consultancy services during the project phase and on the field.
If we mention geogrid costs, we may say that it is necessary to get clear information from geogrid suppliers. Because there are many factors that affect the price. For example, if you want to work with Geobera, you should contact us immediately.
