How TriAx Geogrids Work, in 60 Seconds

by Tensar International , on June 25, 2018

What are TriAx geogrids and how do they work? A geogrid is a geosynthetic material used to stabilize soil. Geogrids have openings, called apertures, which allow aggregate to strike through and provide confinement and interlock. Geogrids can improve the long-term performance of paved and unpaved roadways by minimizing aggregate movement and maintaining modulus values.

Compared to other geotextiles or flexible grids, Tensar TriAx Geogrids spread road loads over a wider area of subgrade, lessening the impact of heavy loads and reducing installation and maintenance costs.
