SECUGRID®

SECUGRID®

is a structurally sound and stable geogrid for soil reinforcement, manufactured of extruded and drawn bars, laid and welded solid together.

SECUGRID® IS A MULTIFUNCTIONAL GEOGRID

Secugrid® geogrids provide tensile reinforcement for base courses in railway and highway foundation engineering, steep sided soil em bank ments and retaining walls, foundation reinforcement of earth embankments, load transfer of overlying soil masses, spanning voids and sink holes, sludge lagoon closures, trench covers and beds. With the available tensile strengths Secugrid® is suitable for the most demanding projects. In addition to our standard geogrid products, we also manufacture Combigrid® – a high strength compo site product comprising a geogrid and nonwoven geotextile.

ADVANTAGES OF SECUGRID®

  • very high strength at low strains
  • immediate interlocking effect
  • low creep characteristics (PET)
  • high angles of friction because of the structured geogrid surfaces
  • high resistance against installation damage
  • 4.75 m wide rolls
  • made from uniformly extruded solid
  • PET or PP bars
  • high resistance against biological and chemical attack
  • biaxial geogrid strengths up to 80 kN/m
  • uniaxial geogrid strengths up to 400 kN/m
  • BBA certificate for reinforced slopes up to 70°
  • available with bonded Secutex® nonwoven (Combigrid®)
  • quick and easy to install
  • ISO 9001 certified
  • CE marked

SECURED® IS SAFE

Secugrid® geogrids are superior soil reinforcement elements because they resist service tensile force loading with very low elongation. This results in an immediate force connection and interlocking with the fill soil without primary deformation. The monolithic flat polymer bars used to make Secugrid® are extremely robust and have excellent chemical resistance. Secugrid® is manufactured under the EN ISO 9001 : 2000 regime, ensuring its uniformity and high quality. It has passed the inspection of numerous recognised materials testing institutes and has been approved by the Federal Railway Agency for use in earth structures for railway engineering.

SECUGRID® GEOGRIDS ARE ECONOMICAL

Engineering system solutions using Secugrid® geogrids can save natural mineral resources by reducing base course thickness for pavements. For this application a calculation disk can be requested to determine the right Secugrid® type. As Secugrid® is easy to handle, large quantities can be installed quickly with minimal demand on labour resources and lower installation costs.

SECUGRID® IS SIMPLE

Secugrid® can be installed during virtually all weather conditions without heavy equipment or special construction techniques. Panels are joined and continuity is assured with simple overlaps. Standard cutting tools can be used for on-site trimming, and for steep sided slopes, various geometrical shapes can be formed where needed to best fit the location.

CONCLUSION

The Secugrid® geogrid products are extremely robust and easily installed, providing an economical alternative solution to traditional construction methods. The wide range of products, including both uniaxial and biaxial (R and Q type) geogrids, makes Secugrid® an ideal structural component in practically all fields of civil and environmental engineering. These high-perfor mance, low cost products provide simple, cost effective soil reinforcement, by strengthening naturally unstable soil and subsoil to withstand the loading conditions imposed by modern engineering demands.
