Tensar Uniaxial (UX RE) Geogrids

1 World’s First Commercially available Geogrid
40 Years of Production and Global Project Successes 
120+ Year Design Life
  • Ideal for wall and slope applications
  • Most advanced geosynthetic made for soil reinforcement
  • Made from select grades of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resins
  • Highly oriented and resist elongation (creep) from high tensile loads
  • Resistant to installation damage and chemical or biological long-term degradation

Tensar uniaxial geogrids can carry high tensile loads applied in one direction (along the roll length). Their open aperture structure interlocks with fill material, to provide superior load transfer from the soil to the geogrid.  

Tensar RE uniaxial geogrids achieve their strength by punching and drawing a homogenous polymer sheet to provide a uniform, consistent product that does not require weaving, coating or welding to maintain the product’s integrity. This unique process provides superior junction strength, allowing high strength connections to other rolls of geogrid or facing components. 

Product Range

Manufactured to rigorous, certified Quality Management systems (by BBA and others)Tensar uniaxial geogrids offer 120-year design life and strengths, and partial factors, outstanding chemical resistance and strong junctions, which  allow high efficiency site joints and connectionsAvailable in a range of design strengths, they are designed to interlock with soil and fill materials and are easy to handle and install. 

Forty Years of Success and Continual Improvement 

Tensar invented geogrids, and Tensar uniaxial geogrids were actually the first commercially available geogrid type. They have been used in projects worldwide for over 40 years, during  which time continuous development has seen multiple improvements. The latest (fourth) generation provides even greater strength per kg of resin, leading to even greater construction economies. 

The Strength Behind TensarTech Systems 

Tensar has a wide range of systems employed in the construction of bridge abutments, retaining walls, steep slopes and embankment basal mattresses, and the majority of them rely on Tensar uniaxial geogrids to reinforce the soil and create the mechanically stabilised earth (MSE) layers.
