Geosynthetics and geogrids in particular
are used as reinforcement if the subsoil or substructure is weak or if the soil
of steep slopes or walls is not stable enough. Reinforcing geosynthetics absorb
shear forces in the soil, improving the mechanical characteristics of
Applications for geogrids:
Installation of geogrids for soil stabilization in road construction reduces the
thickness of mineral sub bases and saves on expensive soil replacement; soil
reinforcement in earthworks.
Colbond offers a wide range of geogrids for the improvement, stabilization and
reinforcement of most kinds of soils.
