GEO-GRID REINFORCEMENT
REINFORCEMENT  
Geo-grid Properties of Geo-grid
Geo-grid is used to reinforce and stabilize the backfill area behind a wall. Additionally through its connection with the Keystone fiberglass pins, the geo-grid acts as a tieback to maintain the position of the wall face. Retaining walls 3’ or higher may require geo-grid.
  • high tensile strength
  • long-term creep resistance
  • open geometry for interlock
  • non-degradable
  • “off-the-shelf” availability

The advantages of geo-grid reinforced structure include:

  • Economical construction by utilizing site soils for the reinforced fill zone.
  • Construct walls faster; the wall structure and backfill are constructed at the same time.
  • Eliminates the need for deep structural footing and excavation due to flexible system design.
  • Provides durability; long term performance, resists effects of water, micro-organisms, alkali or acidic soils.
  • Allows a structural wall to be built with an architectural finish.
HOW GEO-GRID WORKS
The gravel is only contained by the walls of the box. Without reinforcement the gravel collapses when the walls are removed. Geo-grid is added between
layers of gravel.
When the walls are removed the layers of geo-grid maintain the shape of the gravel block.
