Tensar Uniaxial

Uniaxial geogrid for soil reinforcement

Tensar RE500 uniaxial geogrids are used for soil reinforcement in the construction of retaining walls and bridge abutment typically using Keystone TW3 modular blocks or concrete panel wall facing. Tensar RE500 uniaxial geogrids are also used in slip repair and construction of green slopes having either a wraparound construction or with the Green Terramesh system.

Tensar RE500 uniaxial geogrids have been given accreditation for use in retaining walls and bridge abutments as well as in soil slopes by a number of independent government and other certifying agencies around the world and are all manufactured in accordance with Quality and Environmental Management Systems which comply with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2008 and BS EN ISO 14001:2004 respectively.




Tensar RE500 uniaxial geogrids are manufactured from high density polyethylene and are characterised by long, slim apertures that have been orientated in one direction during manufacture to produce high strength in the direction of roll length. The long term (creep) load characteristics for Tensar RE500 geogrid are supported by extensive test data and along with comrehensive durability testing confirm a design life of 120 years.


Tensar RE500 geogrid is suitable for a wide range of applications from shallow slopes to vertical walls. Tensar RE500 geogrid can be joined using bodkins to reduce wastage on site and provide an efficient mechanical connector for concrete panel retaining walls. Tensar RE500 geogrid can be positively connected to the Keystone TW3 modular block using a specially developed connection system. The versatility and robustness of Tensar RE500 geogrid allows its use with most engineered fill types.


  • Independently certified long term strength properties
