TriAx is a revolutionary new geogrid product from Tensar. The triangular structure of TriAx geogrid, coupled with the increased rib thickness and junction efficiency, greatly improves aggregate interlock and confinement – leading to optimal structural performance of the mechanically stabilized layer.
Research indicates that TriAx geogrid can reduce aggregate base/sub-base requirements by 25% to 50%.
Nilex can calculate the economic and environmental savings achieved by implementing our engineered geosynthetic materials - geogrid and geotextiles - in any road construction design using our proprietary Innovation Calculator (versus conventional road construction methods).
We offer a full line of solutions and can provide a complete project evaluation comparing unreinforced applications to Biaxial reinforced or TriAx reinforced solutions to help ensure you are making the right choice.
TriAx geogrid delivers performance in three dimensions:
- Multi-directional Load Distribution
- Triangular Aperture Geometry
- Junction Integrity and Efficiency
- Superior Performance for Paved and Unpaved Roads
- Less Stress on Subgrades
- Enhanced Snowshoe Effect
Spectra Roadway Improvement System
The Spectra System incorporates TriAx geogrid as part of an engineered system that consists of technology, engineering, design, and products to create a mechanically stabilized pavement structure.
In combination with the Spectra System’s engineering and design services, cost-analysis tools and site assistance, TriAx geogrid provides a simple, reliable, and affordable solution for constructing flexible pavements that deliver both reduced construction cost and long-term maintenance needs.
