Secugrid® HS geogrids
Secugrid® HS geogrids are laid geogrids made of high tenacity polyester filaments with an extruded polyethylene protective coating and welded junctions. Secugrid® HS combines high tensile strength and low creep tendency with extreme robustness and resistance.
Secugrid® HS was developed specifically for geotechnical applications in earthworks where tensile strengths of more than 400 kN/m are required.
Secugrid® HS product advantages
- High tensile strength
- High extensional stiffness
- Low creep tendency
- High mechanical robustness
- High long-term strength

Typical applications for Secugrid® HS include
Secugrid® HS is installed at the base of the embankment to avoid failure through excessive shear deformation and bearing capacity failure in the foundation.
In this application, Secugrid® HS is installed at the base of an embankment within a load transfer platform (LTP) over piles to prevent settlements and failure through excessive shear deformation and bearing capacity failure in the foundation.
A layer of Secugrid® HS is installed at the base of an embankment to prevent total collapse of the foundation resulting from voids occurring below the ground surface. Subterranean voids can arise from natural processes (e.g. soil erosion in karstic areas) or from man-made processes (e.g. ground water pumping or underground mining).
