Secugrid® is a structurally sound and stable geogrid for soil reinforcement,
manufactured of extruded and drawn bars, laid and welded solid together.

Secugrid® is multifunctional

Secugrid® geogrids provide tensile reinforcement for base courses in
railway and highway foundation engineering, steep sided soil em bank
ments and retaining walls, foundation reinforcement of earth
embankments, load transfer of overlying soil masses, spanning voids and
sink holes, sludge lagoon closures, trench covers and beds. With the
available tensile strengths Secugrid® is suitable for the most demanding
projects. In addition to our standard geogrid products, we also
manufacture Combigrid® – a high strength compo site product comprising a
geogrid and nonwoven geotextile.

Secugrid® is safe

Secugrid® geogrids are superior soil reinforcement elements because
they resist service tensile force loading with very low elongation. This
results in an immediate force connection and interlocking with the fill
soil without primary deformation. The monolithic flat polymer bars used
to make Secugrid® are extremely robust and have excellent chemical
resistance. Secugrid® is manufactured under the EN ISO 9001 : 2000
regime, ensuring its uniformity and high quality. It has passed the
inspection of numerous recognised materials testing institutes and has
been approved by the Federal Railway Agency for use in earth structures
for railway engineering.

Secugrid® is economical

Engineering system solutions using Secugrid® geogrids can save
natural mineral resources by reducing base course thickness for
pavements. For this application a calculation disk can be requested to
determine the right Secugrid® type. As Secugrid® is easy to handle,
large quantities can be installed quickly with minimal demand on labour
resources and lower installation costs.

Secugrid® is simple

Secugrid® can be installed during virtually all weather conditions
without heavy equipment or special construction techniques. Panels are
joined and continuity is assured with simple overlaps. Standard cutting
tools can be used for on-site trimming, and for steep sided slopes,
various geometrical shapes can be formed where needed to best fit the
location.

Conclusion

The Secugrid® geogrid products are extremely robust and easily
installed, providing an economical alternative solution to traditional
construction methods. The wide range of products, including both
uniaxial and biaxial (R and Q type) geogrids, makes Secugrid® an ideal
structural component in practically all fields of civil and
environmental engineering. These high-perfor mance, low cost products
provide simple, cost effective soil reinforcement, by strengthening
naturally unstable soil and subsoil to withstand the loading conditions
imposed by modern engineering demands.
