Cold, Wet Weather Building Projects Slowing You Down?

Tensar geogrid is the all-weather answer to stabilizing soft soils, even in the most challenging conditions.

Winter has already arrived for some regions, and for others, it's almost here. That means one thing: it's time to start planning for the cold, wet weather that can saturate your job site and cause projects to stall. The good news is that TriAx geogrid from Tensar International keeps job sites running through rough winter weather and can even save thousands of dollars in the process.

Unlike chemical stabilization (i.e. lime, cement, and fly ash), TriAx geogrid can stabilize subgrades in near-arctic conditions with no curing time. Simple and easy to install, it has been used successfully in some of the coldest climates around the world, including Siberia and Northern Canada. 

TriAx geogrid keeps construction schedules moving forward. Stop waiting for:


  • Perfect weather - TriAx Geogrid can be installed in all types of weather, unlike chemical stabilization which has specific temperature and moisture requirements.
  • Your site to dry - TriAx Geogrid rolls out over soft, wet soils and interlocks with a thin aggregate layer to create firm access roads and working platforms. Even on sites that are too soft for fabric to handle.
  • Stuck equipment – Heavy equipment won’t sink when access roads and working platforms are built with TriAx Geogrid.
  • Curing Time – Your site is immediately accessible once TriAx has been installed. Cement and lime stabilization require lengthy curing times.


Contact us the next time you run into bad soils – we’d be happy to show you how it can help save time and money on your site.

Project Example:

We helped a contractor complete a subdivision project that was too cold for lime stabilization. You can watch the video below and download the project profile to find out how TriAx geogrid kept the job moving forward even through snow.
