A roll of Geogrid

Solutions for ground stabilisation, filtration and more

Geosynthetic solutions

Geosynthetic products play an integral role in the majority of building, civil and marine engineering projects. While the range of applications and uses is vast, the functions can be broken down into six broad categories: Separation, Protection, Filtration, Erosion control, Reinforcement and Drainage

Geosynthetics in action

Achieve significant savings

Reduce your projects carbon emissions with geogrids

Wrekin geogrids can play a significant role in reducing carbon emissions across a project. There's numerous ways this is achieved, including:

  • By reducing the amount of earthworks required on-site before the grids go into the ground. This reduces the amount of plant required, and their associated emissions.
  • Reducing the thickness of a haul road, compound or similar. This thickness is created with aggregate which requires extraction, processing, and transport. By minimising the aggregate you will significantly reduce embodied carbon. Wrekin geogrids can provide equivalent load bearing capabilities to sub-bases twice as thick, providing aggregate savings of up to 50%.
  • Minimising the likelihood of repairs. Geogrids provide reinforcement, leading to higher quality, stronger sub-bases, which can result in longer lasting and harder wearing installations, requiring less repairs and maintenance.

Chelsea Garden Project

The Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth in London is one of the UK’s largest independent charitable hospitals. This project involved a need to solve the design constraints for the relocation of a Chelsea Flower Show garden to a hospice, on part of the hospital site. Wrekin provided geosynthetics products, and our experts led on-site product installation supervision to devise innovative solutions.

Thetford Woodland Lodges

Thetford Forest is the UK’s largest man made lowland forest. It’s patchwork of pines, heathland and broadleaves provide the ideal setting for a great day out, and a welcome refuge for a rich variety of animal and plant life. Due to the weight involved, it was clear that the correct selection of ProtectaWeb™ depth was imperative to the success of the project.
