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%.
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.
