Geosynthetic formed by a regular network of integrally connected elements with openings that allow interlocking with the surrounding soil, rock, earth and other materials to provide them with reinforcement. Composed of continuous elements joined by weaving techniques.
Fortgrid biaxial geogrids are used for the reinforcement of granular layers in all types of pavements and industrial floors and for the reinforcement of support soils of superficial foundations. Thanks to their low plastodeformation (low creep), they present stability in long-term mechanical behavior, which represents permanence in the reinforcement function over time and control of deformations in the reinforced structure.
biaxial geogrids fort grid They are developed to interact with soils and stone aggregates, providing high tensile strength and high deformation modulus to the structures they comprise. The geogrid fibers are made with the exclusive G5 Multifilament of high-tenacity polyester (PET) and are coated with a copolymer that gives it greater dimensional rigidity and the necessary protection in its installation.

Embankments on soft soils
__________ Advantages __________
High resistance to tension: high mechanical contribution capacity that stabilizes soft compressible soils.
High elastic modulus: high immediate elastic response that provides reinforcement to the ground.
High interaction with the ground: strong joints that guarantee binding and resistance to pulling out.
Low creep: controls long-term deformation of structures.
Low installation damage: high resistance at the joint, coated with a copolymer that protects them.
