“Our geosynthetics team also offers a calculation service for builders’ merchants to calculate the best product to use for a specific application.”
Simon Turner, Sales Director
E’GRID geogrids from Wrekin Products work in conjunction with compacted fill. They are installed over soft ground and within the compacted granular fill. The high-strength polymer grids interlock with the stone fill to improve load dispersal by confining the fill. It is generally accepted that the best interlocking properties come from a combination of grid stiffness, grid rib height and the size of the grid apertures. The tall rib height and optimised aperture grid of E’GRID make it particularly effective.
But there can be some confusion choosing the correct geogrid, especially when comparing triangular with square or rectangular grids. Wrekin Products has developed a comparison chart for builders’ merchants to choose the correct product when pricing like for like specifications.
