SX Grid allows granular particles to be compacted over them, partially penetrating and projecting through the apertures. This creates a strong and positive interlock, this interlocking mechanism increases shearing resistance within the soil, improving compaction and allowing the sub-base thickness to be decreased while allowing loads to be dispersed. With SX Grid you can reduce construction time, costs and even CO2e.
Benefits of SX Grid
Applications for SX Grid
SX Grid is a versatile biaxial geogrid, providing strong reinforcement to weak sub-bases across a wide variety of applications.
Compounds and haul roads
Achieve an economical design with rapid delivery and reduced costs on your compound or haul road.Compounds and haul roads
Safety is critical, quickly increase the bearing capacity and reduce platform thickness with SX Grid.Piling platforms
Whether a rigid or flexible pavement, SX Grid can provide increased strength and stiffness to a roads foundation.
Minimise track settlement and degradation, by providing granular confinement for increased longevity with reduced costs.
Whether paved or unpaved, the interlocking mechanism provided by SX Grid will increase performance with lower upfront and whole-life costs.
Achieve significant savings
Reduce your projects carbon emissions
Wrekin geogrids can play a significant role in reducing carbon emissions across a project. There's numerous ways this is achieved, including:
Find out how much money and carbon you can save
When constructing a temporary road you can save money and decrease your carbon footprint by using a Wrekin biaxial geogrid to dramatically reduce the amount of aggregate required on your project.
Our easy to use calculator can give you an estimation of cost and carbons savings.

The economical geogrid
Use less rolls on every project
SX Grid provides an economical and eco-friendly solution. Most geogrids are available in 4m roll widths, this results in rolls having to be overlapped and pined together, doubling labour, cost and shipping. SX Grid 3030, our most popular product in the range, is available in roll widths up to 5.2m wide.
This also happens to be the most economical method to ship geogrids to site. The added benefits of this includes reduced CO2, maximising the space available when shipping, meaning more can be transported in less space, reducing environmental impacts. The carbon reductions don’t just stop there, wider rolls means fewer trucks on the road delivering geogrid to site.
For larger applications SX Grid reduces the number of overlaps required compared to alternatives. A reduction in overlaps not only enhances the integrity of the solution by reducing the number of potential weaker points, but can significantly reduce installation time, saving on labour and plant costs.
Combined geogrid and geotextile
Have you considered SX Composite?
Achieve time savings when acquiring materials and overall quicker installations, thanks to SX Composite, a all-in-one solution that performs as both a biaxial geogrid and a geotextile. SX Composite consists of nonwoven geotextile thermally bonded to our popular SX range of geogrid. It provides the functions of reinforcement, separation and filtration into one single product, rather than having to use two separate solutions, which offers significant savings.
Whether you are looking for live project support, or are in the initial stages of specification, we are always on hand and happy to help.
