This project utilized 13,632 square yards of NAUE Secugrid® 30/30 Q1 Geogrid in order to reinforce the base course layer underneath an aircraft hangar & taxiway. Geogrids can increase the life expectancy underneath heavily loaded areas such as an airport.
The Secugrid® 30/30 Q1 was provided as an alternative product on this job. The Secugrid® offers some of the highest values in the market in regards to tensile strength & aperture stability, but the true biaxial nature of the Secugrid® was the main selling point in this application. This unique feature to a rigid grid allows the engineer and contractor to feel confident that the product will perform regardless of which way it is rolled out or which way traffic is moving.
