Pavement solutions for roads and paved areas

Suitable for a range of applications, from rural roads and car parks to major highways and heavy-duty industrial pavements, Tensar’s solutions can delay the onset of failure of flexible pavements by controlling lateral and vertical displacement from traffic loads, mitigating differential settlement over variable ground and reducing surface rutting and cracking.

As part of the Spectra Pavement Optimisation System, Tensar TriAx geogrid stabilises aggregate layers by interlocking particles to create a composite mechanically stabilised layer, providing higher stiffness and more effective support to the entire pavement structure than aggregate alone. Suitable for all ground conditions, using TriAx can reduce aggregate layers dramatically - by as much as 50%.

Asphalt reinforcement
Our range of asphalt reinforcement solutions can reduce surface cracking over joints in underlying concrete slabs or cracks in cement-bound base layers or existing asphalt, plus those induced by thermal movement of substrates and traffic-induced shearing.

Pavement design software

Our powerful design software helps our clients develop subgrade stabilisation and pavement optimisation designs to meet a project’s priorities in the most cost-effective way. TensarPave is available free of charge (with user), while Tensar engineers can use our Spectra M-E software when a mechanistic empirical analysis approach is required.

Tensar solutions for paved roads and paved areas can reduce materials use, cut construction programmes and cost and, through better performance and longer maintenance intervals, extend pavement life, delivering whole-life cost savings.

The benefits of Tensar’s Pavement solutions for roads and paved areas

  • Reduced construction costs: Up to 20% less than conventional designs
  • Thinner pavements: Asphalt thickness can be reduced by 15-30% and aggregate thickness by 25-50%, without a loss in pavement performance
  • Higher capacity: Traffic capacity can be increased by up to six times that of traditionally-built pavements
  • Whole-life cost savings: Increased trafficking performance can reduce maintenance and repairs, making pavement management more effective and delivering whole-life cost savings
  • Reduced carbon footprint: Through fewer lorry movements, reduced excavation depth and less imported and exported materials.
  • Reduced construction programme: Reduction of pavement and/or weak subgrade stabilisation layers thickness can reduce the construction programme significantly.

Tensar’s pavement optimisation and asphalt reinforcement solutions introduce a different kind of thinking to road design and repair, taking a longer term view to optimise performance and reduce initial and whole-life costs. 

With its four key pillars, Tensar Road Technology allows you to achieve the necessary performance and efficiency from every road project, whether new-build or refurbishment
