Overview

Tensar TriAx® geogrid has helped contractors and pavement engineers around the world stabilize soft soils and optimize pavement designs to get longer service life for their budget. Its multi-directional properties leverage triangular geometry, one of construction's most stable shapes, to provide greater stability and stiffness. Its ability to efficiently confine aggregate reduces installation costs while improving the overall performance of the structure.

SKUs

TriAx geogrid is available in nine SKUs: TX 120, TX130S, TX140, TX150L, TX160, TX190L, TX5, TX7, and TX8.

Advantages of TriAx Geogrid

This innovative technology has allowed owners, engineers, and contractors to realize the primary benefits associated with geogrid in both paved and unpaved applications. These applications include optimizing the thickness of pavement components, extension of pavement service life, and the efficient stabilization of soft ground conditions.

Superior Performance for Paved and Unpaved Surfaces

TriAx geogrid's near-isotropic stiffness characteristics contribute to its improved performance in comparison to Tensar's biaxial (BX) geogrids and geotextiles in trafficked applications. Such characteristics are ideal for improving the service life of paved and unpaved surfaces while further reducing excavation and pavement component thickness requirements.

Cost-Effective Soil Stabilization

Conventional approaches to stabilizing soft soils include removing and replacing (over-excavating) the bad material, placing a thick layer of granular material as a bridge layer, or chemically treating the soil to improve its strength. Geogrids provide a simpler, more cost-effective solution using the functions of filtration and stabilization.

All Geosynthetics Are Not Created Equal.

Your reputation is at stake anytime your stamp is used on a design. At Tensar, we don’t take this lightly. That’s why we have invested extensively in research and testing of our TriAx geogrid, proving its design and performance parameters time and again. You can use your stamp with confidence every time TriAx geogrid is specified in a design. Don’t risk using products with unproven technologies.

Comparing Geogrids

There are dozens of geogrids and other geosynthetic products on the market. How do you know which is right for your project's needs? When it comes to roadway construction, the keys are proper design and testing to validate performance.

Trenching with Geogrid

Tensar geogrids are routinely excavated through and punched through in order to place guardrail posts, bridge piers, and underground utilities.

A Resilient Solution

Tensar geogrids are 100% UV resistant and will not rust, leach, or degrade in direct sunlight. When you build with geogrids, you can count on a higher-performing and longer-lasting solution for future generations to enjoy.
