Soil Reinforcement Geogrid
- Reinforced soil walls
- Segmental retaining walls
- Reinforced steep slopes
- Embankments over soft soils
- Wrapped face walls
Stratagrid™ geogrids reinforce soil with their high molecular weight and high tenacity polyester yarn. The yarns are precision knitted into a dimensionally stable network of apertures providing tensile reinforcement capacity in both principle directions. A black UV stabilized saturation coating provides further chemical and mechanical benefits.
Stratagrid geogrid is mechanically and chemically durable, in the installation phase, in aggressive soil, or in aqueous environments. Stratagrid is produced in multiple strengths in order to provide the most efficient design possible. Stratagrid has been proven in the lab and by its installation in literally thousands of applications over the past decade.
Stratagrid was designed to be a reinforcement material that is easy to install in the field. It can be cut by hand for precise shaping. The apertures of Stratagrid are highly dimensionally stable, a critical factor in assuring that the tensile strength of the product is mobilized without excessive deformation. This geometric stability also makes Stratagrid particularly appropriate for use with segmental retaining wall units.
Stratagrid comes in a range of aperture sizes and strengths. The appropriate Stratagrid to use depends upon the application and project specifications. The two Stratagrid examples shown below are representative of the range of sizes.
