Enkagrid MAX

Biaxial laser-welded geogrid for challenging environments

    overview

    High-performance geogrid for sub-base stabilisation in civil engineering projects.

    Stabilising a weak sub-base

    Stabilising a weak sub-base

    Designed for achieving maximum bearing capacity and shear resistance, it exhibits an optimum interaction with all granular soil types. Typically used for construction of roads or platforms on weak soils.

    FUNCTIONS
    • Reinforcement.

    • Sub-base stabilisation.

    • Extra stiffness prevents differential settlements.

    • Prolongs service life of the project.

    High performance

    • Reduces the depth of sub-base layer required.
    • Absorbs loads generated by traffic.
    • Excellent mechanical long-term durability.
    • Consistent stress-strain performance.
    • Excellent resistance to mechanical damage.
    • High levels of UV resistance, and chemically inert.
    High performance
    Cost effective

    Cost effective

    • Reduces carbon footprint. 
    • Fast, easy handling and installation with rolls up to 5m wide.
    Applications enabled by this product

    Railway Support

    Solutions to resist the upward movement of fine soil particles, and reinforcement to improve bearing capacity over weaker subgrades or prevent deformation of ballast.

    Roads & Working Platforms Over Soft Ground

    For reinforcing and stabilising foundations and sub-bases over weak soils, we can advise on different solutions for varied needs.

    Wind Farms

    The local soil in areas of wind farm construction is often weak and lacking bearing capacity for the heavy equipment needed for construction and maintenance. Use our geotextiles and geogrids to create a safe and economical construction site.

    Technical details
    • Enkagrid MAX is a rigid, biaxial geogrid of extruded polypropylene or polyester strips with the same design strength in both machine and cross-machine directions.
    • It is available in different tensile strengths in rolls up to 5m width.
    • The engineered structure employs cutting-edge manufacturing concepts such as the patented computer controlled laser welding process.
    • Using laser technology, the quality of the junction bonds is precisely controlled during the production process.
    • This creates consistently rigid joints throughout the geogrid without affecting the polymer orientation or stress-strain performance of the extruded strips.
