BaseLok FabGrid

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.
