A.G.A. GEO-GRIDS

A.G.A Geo-Grids

Soil reinforcement for steep earth slopes, retaining walls and the stabilisation of weak ground.

A.G.A. Geo-Grids create a reinforcing function by supporting the penetration of soil/rock particles or other geotechnical materials through the grids apertures by interlocking the particles.

Soil reinforcement for steep earth slopes, retaining walls and the stabilisation of weak ground.

A.G.A. Geo-Grids create a reinforcing function by supporting the penetration of soil/rock particles or other geotechnical materials through the grids apertures by interlocking the particles.

Geo-Grids are used in layers with suitable fill to create a stiff mechanically stabilised layer within the soil, vastly improving its load bearing capacity.

Geo-Grids are used both for reinforcement of non-cohesive soils, cohesive soils and formations made of coarse-grained materials.

Geo-Grid reinforced steep slopes and embankments cost significantly less than conventional concrete or gabions retaining structures.

A.G.A. Geo-Grids used for soil reinforcement can accommodate very high loads.

 

Benefits of A.G.A Geo-Grids:

High tensile strength at low elongation

Very low strain at maximum load

High resistance to chemicals in soils

High level of microbiological resistance

Excellent resistance to damage during installation

Optimal interlocking with coarse grained soils

High pull-out resistance

Low values of creep ensure long term stability

Increased stability of embankments

Reduces volume of earthworks

Preserve natural appearance of slopes

Easy construction even in wintertime

Cuts the construction costs and time

 

Typical applications:

The stabilisation of steep river and reservoir banks

Vegetated retaining walls

Reinforcing embankments of road, car parks and railways

Permanent, short term, temporary and emergency vehicle parking

Embankments constructed on piles

Reinforcement of fillings and soils on construction sites

Landslip repairs

The construction of noise barriers and bunds

Reinforcement of unstable foundations

Vegetation is often an integral part of the design where Geo-Grids are used, where required our consultants will always advise on suitable planting methods and species.

A.G.A. Geo-Grids are available in strengths from 20kN/m to 350kN/m.

Bi-axial grids offer strength in both directions.

Uni-axial grids provide the principal strength in one direction.

Where required we can design and have manufactured Geo-Grids produced to higher strengths to suit a client’s own specification.
