Secugrid & Combigrid in Infrastructure Applications
Combigrid® geogrids are the next generation of geogrids produced with state of the art manufacturing technology, unlike any other geogrid on the marketplace today. The reinforcement element is a highly oriented polypropylene or polyester bar that is uniformly extruded and drawn to achieve a high modulus and strength at low elongations. The Secutex® non woven geotextile is placed between the Secugrid® bars during the manufacturing process and is firmly bonded be tween the reinforcement bars with the NAUE patented welding technology to provide a structurally sound and stable geogrid. Combigrid® geogrids are mainly used in conjunction with soft and low CBR soils where soil reinforcement in combination with separation and filtration is needed, such as in base reinforcement, embankment reinforcement and pile cap platforms.
This presentation will discuss:
- Advantages of the use of grids
- Applications of grids
- Installation of grids
