Our total geosynthetic package has been continuously developed and expanded since 1995, providing all our customers with technical support, specification and design services, helping you find the solution to all your geosynthetic requirements.

A roll of Geogrid

Geosynthetic solutions

Geosynthetic products play an integral role in the majority of the 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.

E'GRID reduces thicknesses of compounds and haul roads
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.

Geosynthetics are used to fulfil a number of functions that significantly contribute to the good performance of soil related construction project, helping to overcome many common issues.

  • Reinforcement

    Strengthen the soil and aggregate layers as it distributes loads more evenly and reduces rutting .

    Reinforcement geosynthetic function
  • Separation

    A geosynthetic placed between soil layers creates a stronger surface area by preventing different-sized particles from mixing.

    Separation geosynthetics function
  • Filtration

    Restrict the uncontrolled movement of particles to allow the passage of fluids through the soil.

    Filtration geosynthetics function
  • Drainage

    Allow fluids and gasses to flow through the plane of the material and helps with surface water run-off.

  • Protection

    Used as a stress reduction layer to prevent or reduce damage to an adjacent surface or layer.

  • Containment

    Go one step further than separation, allowing for the containment of liquids and gasses in addition to soil particles.

Warner Brothers Studio

Wrekin helped Warner Brothers Studio and earthworks contractor Spadeoak to build new car parking areas as the land where they had previously built car parking on was being reclaimed for new buildings. Wrekin’s MultiTrack 1000 non woven geotextile was laid on the formation to provide separation and filtration.

Mostyn Sea Wall Repairs

When gale force winds combined with high tides on Thursday 5th December 2013, the result was the worst storm surge to hit North Wales in years. A solution devised jointly by Atkins, Alun Griffiths (Contractors) Limited and Wrekin Products was agreed. Our geosynthetic products were used to aid the creation of a barrier against adverse weather.
