General Information

In applications of soil reinforcement and the use of geogrids in engineering structures such as slope stabilisation and segmental block retaining wall construction the geogrid to be used will be subject to constant load over long periods of time. The load will be exerted in one direction only i.e. at a normal direction to the structure face direction. Global Synthetics are able to offer ACEGrid® which is a uniaxial, polyester geogrid in a range of strengths appropriate to this market segment and ensuring that the design strength of the geogrid may be maintained over very long periods of time (may be 100 years).

Product Information 

ACEGrid® is an engineered woven geogrid that has exceptionally high strength characteristics at low levels of strain. The product is additionally coated with a polymer that provides high resistance to degradation in soil environments as well as providing additional UV and mechanical damage protection to the fibres. The ACEGrid® geogrids may be constructed with tensile strengths up to 900 kn/m.  Strains generated at ultimate tensile strength are typically less than 10%. being composed of high tenacity polyester fibres they deliver low creep strains when subject to high tensile loads. Creep strains of less than 1% at design loads of 40% of the initial characteristic tensile strength at 120 year design life, are obtained.

ACEGrid® is made from high tenacity polyester fibres that have a demonstrated history of performance both here in Australia and around the world. ACEGrid® has the ability to carry significant loads imposed upon the product from a range of soil reinforcement applications including slopes and walls and provide innovative solutions in applications that will benefit from the inclusion of a tensile element within the soil structure.

ACEGrid® is suitable for use in short term as well as very long term ground support applications with design lives in excess of 120 years. The product may be manufactured for site specific requirements. the rolls are available in wide widths up to 5.0m to minimise wastage from overlap requirements.

Application

Long Term Soil Reinforcement in Applications of:
– Steepened Reinforced Slopes
– Retaining Walls
– Veneer Reinforcement of Landfills
– Soil Reinforcement over piled foundations
– Support over voids
– Capping of Talings Ponds
– Basal Reinforcement of Soft Soil

ACEGrid® has been exhaustively tested and used in a wide variety of soil reinforced structures throughout the world. Specifically ACEGrid® has been used in a significant number of structures throughout Australasia.

ACEGrid® is very easy to install and is available in wide width rolls to minimise wastage during installation.



Case Study

ACEGrid® – TOYOTA Forklift Site

In 2011, the Toyota Forklift site at Larapinta was to be raised and leveled as part of the site development. The existing boundary was to be raised to allow a concreted hardstand to be constructed above the retaining wall maintaining as much usable area as possible on the hardstand area.
