This is EnkaGrid PRO
EnkaGrid PRO is a uniaxial geogrid for use in the most challenging soil reinforcement applications. It is made of laser-welded highly oriented extruded polyester strips.
Throughout the manufacturing process, the quality of the junctions is controlled precisely to create a durable geogrid with consistently high-performance parameters. EnkaGrid PRO is available in a number of different tensile strengths. And it can be delivered in rolls measuring 2,45 meters or 5 meters wide.
For two decades now, the geogrid has been installed in countless retaining walls as well as in steep slopes.
How EnkaGrid PRO reinforces walls and slopes
For reinforced slopes, EnkaGrid PRO’s geometry and ideal soil-grid interaction create an anchoring effect which allows designers to increase the slope angle. This saves space at the foot of the slope, or increases the area available at the top. The same benefits deliver greater design freedom and options for retaining walls. The distinct advantage of reinforced earth structures over gravity or cantilever walls: they are internally stabilized, with the reinforcement’s tensile strength being mobilized by the self-weight of the soil and surcharge loads. This reduces the active pressure on the inner structure surface. In addition, the vertical pressure on the subsoil is more evenly distributed and pressure peaks reduced.
Because they are less sensitive to deformation, reinforced-earth structures using EnkaGrid PRO can often be applied in areas prone to earthquakes. And they typically allow local soil to be used. This is a key advantage when it comes to building quickly and economically. EnkaGrid PRO can be used with almost any facing type. The most frequently applied techniques include wraparound facings as well as designs incorporating gabions.
