StrataGrid & StrataBase Reinforcement grids for roadbase and retaining walls
These high performance soil reinforcement products are ideal for structural soils support. The grids are made with polyester yarns that have a high molecular weight and extraordinary tensile strength. These yarns are then knitted into a dimensionally stable network of apertures to form the geometric grid shape which offers tensile reinforcement to the soil in both the vertical and horizontal directions.
Our product is coated with a black saturation coating to provide further chemical and mechanical benefits that preserve its durability in any environment.

Geogrid Applications: Types of Slopes
1H:1V or Flatter
What is commonly referred to as 1H:1V or flatter slopes, are slopes where proportion of the height of the rise is less than or equal to the length of the slope.
1H:1V or Steeper
These slopes are classified as slopes where the proportion of the height of the rise is higher than the length of the slope.
Embankments represent a special class of slopes or walls where soil reinforcement is used to stabilize and construct a fill structure having a smaller footprint than what could be constructed with the soil alone. Embankment stabilization is common when constructing roadways or other structures over soft, weak foundation materials.
