Use & Purposes
ProGrid® geogrid is formed by punching holes and stretching a stiff plastic sheet to form a geogrid with uniform openings to contain and absorb lateral forces exerted on the reinforcement from implied loads. The transfer of implied loads to the geogrid is by way of a combination of friction and interlocking with the surrounding granular particles. ProGrid® geogrids provide a stiff, high modulus reinforcing layer to allow the construction of roads and
other amenities over weak subgrades.
