Our expertise and experience has been accumulated over several decades of successful collaboration in international project design and implementation. Supported by our team of qualified civil engineers, we offer proven, practical and best value answers to an extensive range of requirements.
Tensar Technology provides proven practical solutions and the know-how to get them built. Based on the unique properties of Tensar geogrids, Tensar Technology is widely adopted for ground stabilisation and soil reinforcement problems, delivering real savings in both cost and time. We can help you apply Tensar Technology to deliver the best value on your project.
Expensive, disruptive and frequent maintenance is often required on railway track that overlies a soft subgrade due to the problem of settlement. Because of this, a simple and economical method of reinforcing track ballast is required.
Tensar geogrids provide an extremely cost-effective solution for the reinforcement of ballast over a soft subgrade bringing significant benefits to the railway engineer.
Tensar has extensive experience in upgrading European railway corridors. This has resulted in innovative and cost-effective solutions in railway engineering.
Independent research has confirmed that Tensar geogrids are an effective way of reducing the rate of ballast settlement over soft subgrades. An extensive, full-scale, independent research programme was carried out by British Rail and clearly demonstrated it:
There are two major application areas for the use of Tensar geogrids - within and beneath railway track ballast:
Other benefits of the Tensar geogrid solution include:
Tensar TriAx? – a revolution in geogrid technology
Tensar International has almost 30 years of experience in analysing and optimising the performance of geogrids. Drawing on this technical knowledge and expertise, Tensar has radically re-engineered the fundamental structure of geogrids to create a revolutionary new product. The TriAx geogrid is the culmination of this research and represents the future of geogrid technology, using one of the most stable forms - the triangular structure.
The unique TriAx structure incorporates several characteristics which combine to create an optimised structure that outperforms conventional biaxial geogrids in trafficking applications. When combined with a suitable aggregate TriAx produces a mechanically stabilised layer with exceptional performance.
