Carthage GX® Series of Woven-Coated Uniaxial Polyester Geogrids

arrow bulletFUNCTIONS

Woven-Coated Uniaxial Geogrids are most frequently specified to perform at least one of the following functions:

  • Aggregate Reinforcement
  • Soil Reinforcement

Uniaxial GeogridsSERIES DESCRIPTION

Carthage Mills' GX Geogrids are manufactured from high-tenacity,high molecular weight polyester (PET) fibers in a full range of tensile strengths designed to meet the most demanding soil reinforcement applications; including Ultimate Tensile up to 29,750 lbs/ft.

GX Geogrids are woven in a stable, interlocking grid, placed under tension and polymer coated to provide excellent resistance to chemical and biological degradation within the pH range common to buried reinforcement applications.

The special polymer coating of GX Geogrids also increases the dimensional stability of the product enhancing soil interaction properties and protecting against construction related installation damage.


arrow bulletFEATURES AND BENEFITS

The ultimate design properties of Carthage Mills' GX Geogrids were carefully targeted by engineers who play an active role in the actual design and construction of segmental retaining walls. They provide the most efficient long-term design strengths (LTDS) in the industry.

  • SUPERIOR LONG-TERM DESIGN STRENGTH (LTDS): GX Geogrids feature exceptional long-term creep rupture performance. Combined with rugged resistance to installation damage and the durability of high tenacity PET fibers, GX Geogrids provide the most efficient design strengths available in the market.
  • EXCELLENT SOIL INTERACTION: GX Geogrids deliver immediate tensile reinforcement to the soil or aggregate fill ensuring top performance of the reinforced structure.
  • COST EFFECTIVE: Industry leading LTDS and interaction efficiency minimizes the number of geogrid layers required in the design.
  • COMPREHENSIVE TESTING PROGRAM: GX Geogrids have been tested in accordance with the most rigorous standards of our industry ensuring credible data upon which the most demanding MSE designs rely.
  • ROLL SIZES: GX Geogrids are available in standard 6' roll width allowing for easy shipping to, and handling at the project site. The standard 300' roll length is optimum for minimizing cut waste at the end of the roll. GX Geogrids are also available in 12' and 17' wide rolls.

arrow bulletAPPLICATIONS

Carthage Mills' GX Geogrids are used in a wide variety of soil and aggregate reinforcement applications.

  • Segmental Retaining Wall (SRW) Reinforcement
  • Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) structures or walls (Temporary and Permanent)
  • Steepened slopes
  • Veneer Reinforcement
  • Voids Bridging
  • Earth filled Embankments over soft soils; Dikes and Levees
  • Welded wire-form faced walls i.e. Palisades
