used in the reinforcement of walls and slopes, E’GRID Uniaxial’s principle characteristic is good creep performance with low strain and high strength under constant load.
Soil banks are constructed by wrapping E’GRID Uniaxial geogrid around the soil face to the required slope angle, this process is repeated in layers to create a stable/steep embankment. Reinforced soil retaining walls can be constructed with a variety of faces, these structures can accommodate base deformation and have particularly good resistance to vibration and earthquakes. E’GRID reinforcement can improve the bearing capacity and safety of a structure whilst helping to reduce construction cost. Engineers can further attain cost savings by reusing on site material, even from previously failed slopes, which can be excavated and reused together with E’GRID geogrids to construct a stable embankment or slope.
|E’GRID Uniaxial geogrids from Wrekin|
|are manufactured from high density polyethylene (HDPE), which is punched and drawn to create long apertures in the principle load carrying direction.|
Typical applications for E’GRID:
- Reinforcement of soil walls and abutments
- Soil slopes along side roads and railways
