Geosynthetics in classified road construction

In the “Guidelines for the specification of traffic areas”, a set of
standard construction details are given for specific types of roads
depending on their intended usage and service life. By including
separation and reinforcement geosynthetic products in these standard
construction details, a technically equivalent (or superior) design can
be achieved by reducing the expensive mineral base course material
thickness. If the subsoil of the intended road construction does not
have sufficient bearing capacity, geosynthetic reinforcement can also be
used in the stabilisation of the subsoil.

Geosynthetics for Construction roads and heavily trafficked areas

Geosynthetic system solutions are used in the construction of temporary
roadways and trafficked areas which are not classified under national
guidelines, such as construction roads, parking lots, forest paths and
access roads.

Groundwater protection in transport infrastructure

Various national guidelines for road construction in environmentally
sensitive areas require the subsoil be sealed and effective construction
measures be taken to protect the groundwater in transport
infastructure near to water catchment areas. In numerous projects,
Bentofix® geosynthetic clay liners and Carbofol® geomembranes have
proven to be effective, economical sealing systems. They are used under
roads, railways and for retention basins.

Geosynthetics in slope stabilisation

Secugrid® reinforcing geogrid products are commonly used to stabilise
steep slope soil veneers. Secumat® erosion control mats are used on
slopes to prevent soil erosion, as well as vegetation or seed wash-out
due to rainfall. In either case, Secugrid® and Secumat® geosynthetic
products can be effectively used to help protect slopes from erosion and
veneer failure.

Geosynthetics for retaining walls

With complete geosynthetic system solutions, noise barriers,
retaining walls, reinforced embankments or other structures
with inclinations of up to 90° can be built.

Geosynthetics for drainage of structures

To avoid damage caused by the build-up of hydraulic pressure in
retaining walls, bridge foundations, basement walls and other
subterranean structures, an effective drainage system is often
necessary.

Geosynthetics for building over soft subsoils

Geosynthetics can be used in a variety of ways for capping, covering,
sealing and reinforcement of soft soils. They offer an economic,
lightweight solution to different environmental conditions.

Geosynthetics in pipeline construction

During pipeline construction, geosynthetics such as Secutex® protection
nonwovens and robust Secugrid® geogrids can be used in several ways to
prevent damage to the system at all stages of the project.
