    Market Sector:


    Wrekin Products E-Grid

    Product Description:

    E-Grid Biaxial
    E Grid Biaxial geogrids from Wrekin can solve pavement problems by providing omni-axial reinforcement to granular sub-bases, capping layers, railway ballasts in areas of weak or variable soils. When granular particles are compacted over these grids, they partially penetrate and project through the apertures to create a strong and positive interlock.  The load dispersal effect from the interlocking mechanism increases shearing resistance within the soil, improving compaction and allowing the subbase thickness to be decreased, ultimately reducing construction time and costs.

    E-Grid Biaxial geogrids can be employed in single or multi layers.  The tough platform created provides tremendous load dispersal, allowing previously weak soils to be reclaimed for development e.g. Foundations, Motorways, Railways, Airport Runways. Biaxial geogrids are available in standard and large aperture sizes, to suit any fill material.

    E Grid Uniaxial
    Used in the reinforcement of walls and slopes, E-Grid (Uniaxial)’s principle characteristic is good creep performance with low strain and high strength under constant load. 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 earthquakes. E-grid reinforcement can improve the bearing capacity and safety of a structure whilst helping to reduce construction cost. Engineers can further attain cost savings 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.

    E-grid Uniaxial geogrids from Wrekin are manufactured from high density polyethylene (HDPE), which is punched and drawn to create long apertures in the principle load carrying direction.
