What is EnduraGrid?
EnduraGrid is a range of Geosynthetic products in the form
of mesh or grid. The purpose of EnduraGrid is to reinforce or add strength to
soil for applications including the strengthening of reinforced walls, pavements
and highways, construction of earth walls, reinforcing embankments of earth
dams, ponds, landfills, landslide repair, and railway track reinforcement. The
ribbed construction of EnduraGrid is designed to significantly increase the
structural integrity of soils.

Geogrids are made
EnduraGrid PP Geogrids are manufactured by stretching high
quality punched sheets of engineering grade polymer under closely controlled
conditions. The structures of optimized nodes and ribs this gives has
significant effects upon the load in soils. The strong interlocking action
betweens the even ribs and the mating material applies confinement to the
lateral displacement of soil. With loading applied, the soil particles settle
and evenly distribute in the mesh squares, which forms a tough platform
spreading load evenly.
Generally a polymer material has molecular chains
distributed randomly with similar properties in all directions. In special
circumstances, molecular orientation occurs by stretching the polymer. This
vastly increase the tensile strength in the orientation direction, which is the
principle manufacturing geogrids.
This orientation provides the following benefits to
Polymer strength is increased and forms mesh structures
with nodes as well. The control of orientation in the nodes has a significant
effect on the mechanical properties and creep performance of a geogrid.
EnduraGrid geogrids have this feature optimized.
The orientation confines the inter displacement of the
polymer molecular chains, resulting in great improvement in tensile modulus.
Orientation reduces strain greatly under long term constant
loading. This is essential to dimensional stability in construction.
