Miragrid GX

Polyester geogrid for soil reinforcement

Miragrid GX is a geogrid manufactured from high modulus polyester yarns to ensure the long term structural stability of reinforced soil structures. Miragrid GX geogrid can accomodate extremely high loads due to low-creep, high-modulus raw materials. The product's relatively low reduction factors have been verified and certified by independent research institutes and testing laboratories.

Miragrid GX geogrid with its open-meshed structure interlocks excellently with most engineering soils. Anchor lengths can therefore be short, reducing costs and reducing the extent of the earthwork operations. Miragrid GX geogrid is flexible, supplied in widths up to 5.2m and is easy to handle making it well suited for reinforced soil slope and mechanically stabilised soil wall applications.

Properties

Miragrid GX is a geogrid manufactured from high modulus polyester fibres that are laid in a flat orientation that enables maximum load efficiency. The fibres are polymer coated to improve the resistance of Miragrid GX geogrid to installation damage and environmental effects. The high modulus polyester used in the manufacture of Miragrid GX and the strict manufacturing and testing quality assurance support the use of Miragrid GX geogrid in structure having a design life of up to 120 years.

Application

Miragrid GX geogrid is supplied in rolls up to 5.2m in width. Miragrid GX geogrid has its main strength in the longitudinal direction, it is easy to handle and install, can be folded or cut to the required length. Miragrid GX geogrid can be used in a wide variety of fill types from clays to sands up to well graded aggregates having a maximum particle size of 65mm. The wide range of testing with these fill types allows Miragrid GX geogrid to be used for reinforcement of soil embankments, soil slopes, landfill veneers, bridge abutments and retaining walls.
