Geosynthetics are used for countless applications including: to strengthen existing ground, improve its bearing capacity, make highways last longer, support embankments, stop landfill leachates contaminating the ground and limit erosion.
With defined technical characteristics and performance properties, geosynthetics are replacing the use of natural materials within construction.
They are proven to reduce project cost and environmental impact compared with traditional construction methods.
Our geosynthetics products can be used to fullfil the following main functions:
- Stabilisation and Asphalt Reinforcement
- Separation, Filtration and Protection
- Barrier Systems
- Erosion Protection
For over 30 years, geogrids have reinforced and strengthened soils, enabling the soil to perform better than it would in its unreinforced state, accommodating greater loads, standing at steeper angles and
STABILISATION & ASPHALT REINFORCEMENT
Whether you are constructing a railway track-bed, gravel forestry track over soft soil, or resurfacing a multi-lane highway carrying many thousands of vehicles per day, we have the technical knowledge to improve rail track, road and asphalt pavement performance.
Excessive water in soil weakens it, causing various issues. Managing water behind walls, highways, tunnels, and environmental caps is vital for long-term structure performance.
SEPARATION/ FILTRATION/ PROTECTION
Our geotextile are currently used in many geotechnical and hydraulic engineering applications.
Geomembranes are used to prevent the migration of fluids from one location to another; for example, lining landfills to stop leachate polluting groundwater, controlling groundwater entering tunnels or creating
attenuation ponds within developments.
All natural slopes and surfaces are subject to continuous erosion forces. To limit expensive land-loss, Maccaferri offers a range of erosion protection systems to suit the severity of erosion expected.
