Ground Stabilization & Subgrade Improvement

In almost any construction project, working on weak or soft soils presents considerable challenges for soil stabilization. Tensar’s technology and expertise of ground stabilization not only improves site performance, but is proven to reduce costs and environmental impact. Our innovative TriAx® geogrids are designed to provide effective confinement of the granular fill. This results in a stiff mechanically stabilized layer capable of controlling differential settlement, reducing road fill depths, and increasing bearing capacity.

Ways you can benefit

By using TriAx® Geogrid for ground stabilization of the granular foundation layers, Tensar Technology can really benefit your project:

  • Reducing layer thickness: capping and sub-base layers can be reduced by up to 50% with no performance loss, saving on materials and excavation
  • Reducing construction carbon emissions: by up to 50%
  • Increasing life: a mechanically stabilized layer incorporating TriAx Geogrid can extend service life of unpaved roads by a factor of three or more, reducing long-term maintenance costs by up to 50%
  • Increasing bearing capacity: the load spreading capability of a mechanically stabilized layer incorporating TriAx Geogrid can increase the bearing capacity of working platforms for heavy duty tracked plant such as cranes and piling rigs
  • Controlling differential settlement: over highly variable ground conditions, soil stabilization using TriAx Geogrid can help even-out variable ground support from a foundation soil
  • Capping weak deposits: Tensar TriAx Geogrid promote the safe placement and installation of cover layers of soil in the capping of sludge lagoons and industrial waste deposits

Soft soils? Tensar geogrids provide the answer.

For more than two decades, Tensar® Geogrids have been helping contractors improve their bottom line by saving them time, money and materials.

Whatever your project, we can help

For more than 30 years, Tensar’s innovative ground stabilization solutions have proven ideal for many kinds of construction and subgrade improvement projects, including paved and unpaved roads, car parks, airfields, heavy duty pavements and working platforms.

We also offer full technical support including design software, expert advice and site assessments. To find out more call 800-TENSAR-1 or get fast help for your project by filling out one of our design request forms:
