This geogrid is manufactured from polyester yarns that have a high molecular weight and excellent 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.

StrataGrid is coated with a black bituminous saturation coating to provide further chemical and mechanical benefits that enhance its durability in harsh environments.

High strength polyester geogrids are ideally suited to retaining walls, steepened slopes, and embankments subjected to long term creep loads. PET has superior long-term creep resistance compared with an HDPE or polypropylene polymer.

StrataGrid is very easy to install and available in wide rolls minimising wastage and labour during installation.

Cirtex® can offer documentation for connection capacity between StrataGrid and a range of segmental block systems available within Australia and New Zealand.

This range is specially designed for reinforcement of embankments on soft soils, road foundations, supporting structures, fills and slopes.

In addition, the F PET range has a backing of woven polypropylene (PP) geotextile to provide enhanced separation, filtration and protection characteristics.

Geoter provides high strength at low strains and is designed to perform over extended lifespans of 100+ years. The Geoter F PET and W PET ranges are NZTA approved and the data sheets detail appropriate factors for design.

Please contact Cirtex® for additional information and design support.

Sustainability Outcomes

The use of reinforced soil technology which includes the integration of geogrids and geotextiles in the design and construction of walls, slopes and embankments allows for optimisation of resource use, often permitting the utilisation of site soils and a reduction in the use of quarried aggregates. In addition this integration provides an ability to construct seismically resilient structures much higher and steeper than unreinforced, allowing us to maximise land use.”
