Introducing TriAx® geogrids in a road construction can have significant benefits compared with a non-stabilised solution:
Reduced layer thickness: the unbound granular layers can be reduced by up to 50% with no performance loss. This may also mean that less soft subgrade soil needs to be excavated and disposed of.
Longer life: with an improved layer modulus, control of subgrade rutting and mitigation of differential settlement, the life span of the whole pavement can be increased
Long term cost savings: less excavation and use of natural aggregates can reduce construction costs and halve construction CO2 emissions, while less disruption and improved design life offer longer-term savings
Mitigation of differential settlement: over very variable ground or when road widening, unbound layer stabilisation using Tensar TriAx® can help control differential settlement
