A Uniaxial Geogrid is a type of geosynthetic construction material, designed to have the higher mechanical strength properties of its material structure along it machine or longitudinal direction. Uniaxial Geogrids are primarily used for slope stabilization and retaining wall reinforcement.
Made by weaving high strength polyester yarns or cut from extruded high strength polymer, the Uniaxial Geogrid is able to stretch under load as the structure it is reinforcing settles, thus maintaining structural integrity as time goes on. Uniaxial Geogrids are also made from materials which are inert to biological degradation, as well as any naturally occurring corrosive compounds in the soil.
Uniaxial Geogrids are used in situations where the bulk of the load bearing requirements are in one direction only. Applications such as structural slope stabilization and retaining wall reinforcement are typically where Uniaxial Geogrids are utilized.
We strive to provide the highest quality products and materials for whatever specification your project requires.
The Geogrids we stock and provide are manufactured to meet or exceed common requirements as specified by:
If you have questions about a specification or requirement, or are just unsure about what Geogrid you should use for your project, let us know. We have the resources and experience to help you find the best solution.
At Midwest Construction Products, we offer a full line of Geogrids, covering a wide range of specifications and applications. From lightweight Geogrids for parking areas and small backyard retaining walls, to heavy weight Geogrids for high load, heavy use roads base reinforcement, to structural slope stabilization and MSE walls.
