Robust And Lightweight Plastic Mesh

These geosynthetic products are lightweight and economical with high-strength performance. They offer strength and stiffness and are a popular alternative for underground support due to the following features:

  • Large gaps to allow passage of drill steels
  • Light unit weight for ease of handling by a single person
  • High visibility and fire resistance
  • Long design life in corrosive environments
  • Thick ribs for robust durability

Geogrid and Geotextile Applications

Geogrid mesh and geotextile mesh are also appropriated for specific applications. Geotextile fabric suppliers will be able to provide woven or non-woven geotextiles for your required purpose. In general, they are used when soil separation and permeability are required. Geotextile offers filtration, reinforcement, protection and drainage properties for soils in construction and engineering works. Non-woven geotextiles are typically used for rock revetment, French drains or in combination with other subsurface drainage methods. Overall, geotextiles make for thinner membrane fabrics, which strength can reinforce soil and prevent damage. They’re great for construction in filling the gaps between roads to improve soil structure. Additionally, they help make poor, difficult-to-work-with soil better to use and easier to build in.

On the other hand, geogrids offer the same versatility while being more appropriate for soft and hard rock mining, and other earthworks. They’re a prime option for environmental engineering, roads, pavements and foundations where high tensile strength with low elongation is needed. Geogrids are particularly useful in soil reinforcement where slopes and retaining walls are concerned. They can be repurposed as recovery screens, mine ribs and sidewalls, temporary and permanent tunnel support, heap leach and tailings. Beyond mining, they’re also beneficial for soil stabilisation, subgrade improvement, pile foundations, bridging voids and sinkholes in landfills.

They offer:

  • Cost effectiveness
  • Creep resistance
  • Flexibility and durability
  • UV resistance
  • Corrosion resistance, being chemically and biologically inert
  • High junction node strength
  • Safe and easy installation
  • Resistance to installation damage
