Introducing TriAx® geogrids to unpaved roads and hard standings can bring significant benefits compared with an unstabilised aggregate layer:
Reduced layer thickness: the granular layer can often be reduced by up to 50% with no performance loss. This may also mean that less subgrade soil needs to be excavated and disposed of.
Longer life: with an improved bearing capacity and control of differential settlement, the service life of the road can be increased
Lower quality and recycled aggregate fill: With increased layer performance, the use of a mechanically stabilisation may enable the use of lower quality fill materials such as reclaimed aggregates.
Long term cost savings: less excavation, less aggregate, plus the potential for the use of reclaimed aggregates can reduce construction costs and halve construction CO2 emissions, to produce savings in both cash and carbon currencies.
