Tensar Uniaxial Geogrids for Soil Reinforcement THE ENGINEERED ADVANTAGE
Tensar® Uniaxial Geogrids for Soil Reinforcement THE ENGINEERED ADVANTAGE® EXPERIENCE YOU CAN RELY ON Tensar® Uniaxial (UX) Geogrids are manufactured using select grades of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resins that are highly oriented and resist elongation (creep) when subjected to high tensile loads for long periods of time. Geogrids manufactured from HDPE provide high resistance to installation damage and chemical or biological long-term degradation. In fact, Tensar UX Geogrids have shown no degradation after long term exposure to pH levels as high as 12 and can be used in both dry and wet-cast environments. Tensar International Corporation (Tensar), the leader in geosynthetic soil reinforcement, offers a variety of solutions for foundation, retaining wall and roadway projects. Our products and technologies, backed by the most thorough quality assurance practices, are at the forefront of the industry. Highly adaptable, cost-effective and installation friendly, they provide exceptional, long-term performance under the most demanding conditions. Our support services include site evaluation, design consulting and site construction assistance. For innovative solutions to your engineering challenges, rely on the experience, resources and expertise that have set the industry standard for more than two decades.

TENSILE STRENGTH Tensar UX Geogrids can carry high tensile loads applied in one direction (along the roll length). Their open aperture structure interlocks with fill material to provide superior load transfer from the soil to the geogrid. Tensar UX Geogrids achieve their strength by punching and drawing a homogenous polymer sheet to provide a uniform, consistent product that does not require weaving, coating or welding to maintain the product’s integrity. This unique process provides superior junction strength allowing high strength connections to other rolls of geogrid or facing components. Tensar Geogrids are used for high strength soil reinforcement in wall and slope applications. Over 100-million square feet of retaining structures in service today are reinforced with Tensar UX Geogrids. Tensar UX Geogrids install easily in stand alone applications as well as in conjunction with one of our proprietary soil stabilization systems.
