A combination of two proven technologies: punched and drawn geogrid and non-woven geotextile fabric.
When used in conjunction, these two products offer a new tool in the fight against weak soils. Designing engineers are increasingly utilizing non-woven geotextiles in combination with geogrid to eliminate the migration of fines into the aggregate base layers. In one easy deployment, FabGrid™ provides separation, reinforcement, filtration and confinement.
HOW IT WORKS
The high tech bonding of two proven geosynthetics is known as a composite geogrid. It offers the confinement properties of geogrid and the filtration/separation properties of a non-woven geotextile fabric to provide the designing engineer a new tool in the arsenal to fight weak soils. Designers are increasingly faced with less than desirable subgrades for construction. Many times, these subgrades have a high fines content, making a non-woven geotextile a must. Additionally, engineers are faced with building over unknown fill types or possibly contaminated soils. FabGrid™ offers an economical method to bridge over these problematic soils in one expedient installation.
The "Snowshoe Effect"
Based on distribution of force, FabGrid™ creates a matrix of geogrid and aggregate to distribute heavy loads over softer subgrades.
Allows aggregate separation, filtration, and stabilization
Save time and money with optimal structural thickness
Safe and permanent alternative to chemical stabilization agents
Efficient and Easy
Save yourself the trouble of installing a separate geogrid and geotextile – reduce labor and time by deploying a single layer of BaseLok™ FabGrid™
