Geogrids Geogrids for crushed stones
Traditionally, concrete and metal were used for erecting and strengthening big structures like dams, slopes, abutments of bridges, road canvases. Recently, however, geosynthetic materials have become particularly popular. Due to their versatility, they can be used to solve various problems. Volumetric types of geosynthetics are considered to be an excellent solution for arranging the road transport system. Light, but durable geogrids for crushed stone squeeze expensive analogues out of the market. They are made of polypropylene or polyethylene and are considered an affordable solution for infrastructure improvement. The cell structure of this material allows to firmly fix the sand or gravel, thereby providing increased strength and stability of road surfaces, slopes.
The "Slavros" company offers a wide range of products from geosynthetics. Being one of the key manufacturers and suppliers of geogrids for crushed stone, gravel and sand, Slavros has a developed dealer network in all regions of Russia. Favorable offers in terms of price and quality are very attractive for wholesale buyers. You can buy geomats of various characteristics and sizes. All products consistent with safety standards and technical control standards. If you are interested, you can obtain detailed information by calling the contact numbers listed on the site.
What geogrids fits to a crushed stone?
Cells structure of the geogrid allows you to maximize its benefits. The main functions of geogrids:
- providing surface drainage;
- soil deformation prevention;
- reliable fixation of gravel, sand, crushed stone and other fillers;
- environmental safety;
- increase the bearing capacity of the road surface.
Depending on the characteristics of the production, monoaxial and biaxial geosynthetic materials are distinguished. Monoaxial elements have a simplified structure and consist of rectangular cells. The biaxial geogrid takes the form of volumetric and consists of square cells. In addition, of geosynthetics come in the forms of bulk and flat varieties. The flat type is formed from a network of polymer bands. They are widely used in all areas of construction, landscaping and landscape design. You can use the "Slavros SD", "Slavros ZHDP", "Slavros GR" products as a geogrid for gravel.
1) Slavros GR is advantageous for its simplicity, durability and structural strength. This is a great solution for reinforcement of the tapered part of the roadblocks and bridges. As a bulk element, you can choose both gravel and sand.
2) “Slavros ZHD-P” are specially designed for solving problems during arranging of railway tracks. Also, to build embankments on peat soils, weak soils, in permafrost conditions, on wetlands, wetlands due to this type of geosynthetics is economically and technologically correct.
3) "Slavros SD" is intended for the reinforcement of road pavement. Areas, which account for a large amount of gravity, require reliable reinforcement. Slavros SD allows you to create a structure that will withstand high static and dynamic loads.
Technology of filling the geogrid with crushed stone and its nuances
The construction of roads, temporary ferries in marsh soils and peatlands, the design of slopes and tunnels can hardly be done without the use of geogrids with crushed stones. First of all, before laying the geogrid it is necessary to clean the surface from debris. Laying method is selected based on the location of the geogrid - either transverse or longitudinal.
Attention! When choosing a geogrid height, you should be guided by the angle of inclination. It is recommended to use products with a minimum height of 5 cm. In this case, filling the geogrid with crushed stone will give the desired result.
Before laying the embankment on the geomaterial, its edges should be tightly fastened to the anchors. You should also re-check the correctness and flatness of the stretch mesh. If irregularities are found, it is necessary to ensure a tight fit of all parts of the grid to the surface to be equipped. The easiest way to fill the cell is with a front loader or backhoe excavator. Among the main nuances of the filling technology, the need for maximum stretching of each cell is noted. Loading sand or crushed stone should not be too close to the machinery. Otherwise, the risk of cell damage increases. The materials for filling should be sufficient enough as planned due to the occurrence of subsidence of the aggregate and its compulsory compaction to increase the strength.
Compliance with all the rules of the geogrid filling technology will allow not only to equip the object with high quality, but also to achieve the maximum beneficial effect from the use of the product. Slavros Geosynthetics for many years regularly serves for the improvement of sectoral infrastructure throughout the country. Excellent product quality is the main factor when choosing our company.
