GridTex is a geogrid geotextile composite providing an economical solution for reinforcement and separation when constructing on soft ground.
GridTex is a combination of DuraGrid X polypropylene geogrid with a nonwoven geotextile, providing both reinforcement and separation. While the DuraGrid X geogrid provides the reinforcement and stabilisation functions, the nonwoven geotextile provides separation and filtration. The combined effect provides a practical solution for dealing with soft subgrades on roads, foundations and working platforms providing both separation and reinforcement in the same roll.
GridTex will save time as it can be laid in a single operation instead of laying grid and textile separately.
This product is available in three strength grades to suit a range of applications being 20/20kN/m, 30/30kN/m and 40/40kN/m.
The stronger grades of 30kN/m and 40kN/m are primarily selected to mitigate construction damage from heavy machinery on very soft subgrades.
The 20kN/m is more commonly used for firmer subgrades and/or lighter construction equipment and the construction of temporary access tracks to enable access across poor subgrades.
Frequently Asked Questions
GridTex is a geocomposite pavement stabilisation product which includes a geogrid and separation geotextile. Providing both reinforcement and separation. The reinforcement element for GridTex utilises DuraGrid X which is a punched and stretched geogrid. The geotextile laminated to the geogrid is a nonwoven needle-punched geotextile similar to the DuraForce® AS280 product. The 200gsm geotextile provides the separation function of the geocomposite.
GridTex is most commonly used for pavement stabilisation over soft soils and the reinforcement of aggregate in raft foundations, where a geotextile separation function is also required.
