Geogrids

A geogrid is a geosynthetic product used to reinforce soils and similar materials. They are commonly used to reinforce earth retaining walls, subbases and subsoils below road structures. 

Under tension soils will pull apart and the geogrids excel in this area, allowing the force to be transferred to a larger area of soil.

Helping to keep busy Suffolk road moving

Wrekin’s technical team was contacted in August 2020 by contractor Interserve (now Tilbury Douglas), which made the improvements on behalf of Suffolk County Council, after the groundworker needed assistance mitigating issues caused by soft ground in the sub-formation near where the link road was being constructed – bringing the project to a halt.

Bristol Airport, Silverzone Car Park

With both an increase in passenger numbers and volume of flights there was a need for the operators of Bristol Airport to undertake a range of improvements across the airport complex to cope with the growing demand. Wrekin were able to provide the necessary technical advice and provide a cost effective alternative in place of the originally specified composite geogrid product.
