Geogrids

The cellular geonet PINEMA BG, also known as the geogrid, is made of textured and perforated tapes made of high density polyethylene (HDPE). A set of tapes of a specific height that are combined by ultrasonic welding makes a system with the structure resembling a honeycomb. After filling with aggregate and compacting, it improves mechanical parameters of the aggregate. The spatial structure is designed to optimise the transmission of forces, reduce pressure, and minimise the costs necessary to achieve satisfying soil parameters on geotechnically difficult subsoils, or when the soil and water situation is not regulated. The geogrid PINEMA BG is manufactured in sections, in dimensions adjusted to the particular project. The HDPE is a soft and flexible material, easy to form so that the cells can be formed freely.

How the PINEMA BG geocell works

The PINEMA BG geocell system makes it possible to reduce the layers of the base course and to maintain and stabilise bluffs and embankments. The soil or the aggregate that fills the cells is blocked by the walls of the system so that it is more compacted. Apart from that the aggregate grains wedge between each other which improves the internal friction angle of the fill. The well compacted fill with the PINEMA BG geocell system counteracts the uneven settlement and reduces vertical forces. This modifies the thickness of the structural layer of the base course appropriately. Moreover, the use of the PINEMA BG geocell system helps to stop washing out the aggregate, which increases the stabilisation and improves the anti-erosion properties of bluffs and embankments.

Functions

Application

The PINEMA BG geocell system, that is the geogrids we manufacture, is widely used for soil stabilisation. The main fields of application are road structures, from forest and temporary roads, through local roads, up to the infrastructure for high-speed railway traffic. Other areas where PINEMA BG cells are recommended are bluffs, embankments and levees on rivers and water reservoirs.

Road construction

The PINEMA BG geocell system helps reduce the thickness of the base course. This in turn reduces the construction costs while meeting the required parameters of the subsoil.

Erosion protection of bluffs, embankments and reservoirs
Soil that detaches and slides down the slope is a problem that construction designers and contractors must often deal with. The PINEMA BG geogrid system can solve this problem. The particles of aggregate or soil are closed in the cells and thus less likely to be washed out and be transported down the embankment. This reduces erosion on the secured area.

Other application

Alians Trade Sp. z o. o. has participated in a number of projects in which the PINEMA BG geogrid has been used. The most important projects include:

  • base course of bicycle lanes,
  • base course of sports fields, golf courses, playgrounds,
  • base course of green car parks and paved manoeuvring areas,
  • protection of landfills against erosion,
  • strengthening the ground for foundations and floor.
For House

The Pinema BG geocells can also be used in every household. The geogrid serves not only to stabilise soil, but also to build an artificial bluff. Another advantage is its price that attracts not only business and institutional customers, but also the individual ones can reach for the material.

With the geogrid you can stabilise soil for the construction of a:

  • house,
  • garage,
  • car park,
  • driveway.

and use it to:

  • stabilize bluffs,
  • make a colourful slope,
  • planting plants.

The Pinema BG geogrids will help you develop the land around your house or a garden in a practical and appealing way. If you would like to have a beautiful garden, you may use our product to:

  • plant plants – the geocells can be used as small plant pots,
  • build an artificial bank – the geogrid will help you shape the land,
  • make a colourful slope – the geocells can be filled with colourful aggregate and make the bank look exceptionally appealing,
  • reinforcing a pond.

The best results of household applications are achieved when the geocells are combined with our non-woven geotextile fabrics – such a structure will serve you for years. The traditional solutions wear fast and increase the investment costs, which affects badly the household budget. The financial situation is much better when the geogrids are used. Their price will certainly not affect your budget.
