Spectra Pavement Optimisation System
Tensar’s Spectra Pavement Optimisation System is a comprehensive approach to optimising pavement structure based upon the proven capability of Tensar TriAx geogrids
to create a mechanically stabilised aggregate layer that helps improve overall pavement performance and reduces pavement management costs.
The Spectra Pavement Optimisation System is more than just the mechanically stabilised layer, however. It includes all the specialist advice, experience, design tools, support and service that Tensar offers; it is a complete solution for pavement designers and contractors.
Suitable for a range of applications, from rural roads and car parks to major highways and heavy-duty industrial pavements, the system can reduce asphalt thickness by 15-30% and aggregate by 25-50%, without a loss in pavement performance. Using fewer materials means fast, economical and environmentally-friendly construction.
Spectra Pavement Optimisation brings long-term benefits too: more support for surfacing layers reduces the rate of structural degradation, reducing maintenance and repair requirements and increasing pavement life by up to six times that of non-stabilised pavements.
