Basetrac® Grid for Base Reinforcement

The high-strength geogrid for road base and sub-base stabilisation

Basetrac Grid is the standard product for base reinforcement applications available in two raw materials. The alkali resistance of the polypropylene material allows its use even in cement-stabilized soils. The flexible material exhibits no memory effect (i.e. it shows no tendency to roll up after laying), allowing much faster and easier installation than with similar products. The high interaction flexibility allows good interaction between soil and reinforcement grid. Cost savings can be achieved through project-specific selection of the required strength (20-80kN/m). The high-tensile geogrid, which is polymer-coated to protect against UV radiation and installation damage, provides reliable long-term reinforcement for base courses. Basetrac Grid has been shown to reduce the quantity of base material needed, in comparison to unreinforced constructions. All this makes Basetrac Grid a safe and durable solution for base reinforcement.
