Wall and slope reinforcement
Used in the reinforcement of walls and slopes, E’GRID Uniaxial reinforcement can improve the bearing capacity and safety of a structure whilst helping to reduce construction cost. Its principal characteristics provide good creep performance with low strain and high strength under a constant load.
E’GRID reinforcement can improve the bearing capacity and safety of a structure whilst helping to reduce construction cost. Further cost savings can be achieved 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.
The system requires no large cranage, specialist skills or tools, allowing for a rapid, easy to construct and economical solution.
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 even earthquakes.
E'GRID Uniaxial allows naturally vegetated slopes to be easily constructed, providing mental health benefits for residents and users, along with environmental benefits.
Applications for E'GRID Uniaxial
E'GRID Uniaxial is provides reinforcement in a single direction. It can even be installed in layers to provide strength to steep embankments at a much-reduced footprint when compared to naturally stable slopes.
Soil walls and abutments
Achieve a strong wall or abutment where adjacent ground requires vertical separation.
Aesthetically pleasing and durable soil slopes on a small footprint, ideal for road and rail applications.
