Technical know-how, no matter the project. 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.
High performance with lowered costs. Road and rail construction materials are becoming expensive and scarcer and clients require a longer life for less money. Our leading range of pavement and ground stabilisation products can help you to reduce maintenance requirements, material use and whole life costs; all whilst maintaining performance.
Maccaferri techniques and solutions
Our advanced Road Mesh grids can structurally reinforce the asphalt pavement, reducing rutting and increasing fatigue life. Glass fibre geogrids can stabilise and strengthen the pavement, preventing reflective cracking. Polymeric geogrids interlock with granular sub-grades to stiffen the track and road foundations improving performance.
Reducing costs and carbon-footprint
A common result of the use of these techniques is a reduction in the thickness of construction materials needed to maintain performance and fatigue life; not only a cost saving, but a reduction in the carbon-footprint of the solution.
State-of-the-art technology for bespoke solutions. We use state-of-the-art design software, featuring various design methodologies, to optimise the reinforcement and the required thickness of the pavement layers. Because every project is different, we offer the widest range of products available for reinforcing asphalt and unbound layers, as well as drainage geocomposites to remove water from the track or pavement structure.
