Products

  • TriAx Geogrid is the newest geogrid product from Tensar. Its multidirectional properties leverage triangular geometry—one of construction’s most stable and widely utilized shapes—to provide an...
  • The Spectra Roadway Improvement System featuring TriAx Geogrid is used to stabilize problematic soft soils that are often encountered during roadway construction. By using TriAx Geogrid in the...
  • The GlasGrid Pavement Reinforcement System, manufactured by ADFORS-St. Gobain and distributed by Tensar, is a pavement interlayer that resists the migration of reflective cracks in an asphalt overlay...
  • The RoaDrain Roadway Drainage System is an engineered solution consisting of a synthetic subsurface drainage layer that can replace the open-graded base layer (OBGL) in a drainage design. With its...
  • GlasPave Waterproofing Paving Mats feature fiberglass mesh between polyester mats that have been coated to enhance their bond to asphalt, making them stiffer and stronger than other paving mats. This...

Tensar International is a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance products and engineered solutions. Tensar provides a wide range of geosynthetic solutions for earthwork problems.

By using Tensar TriAx geogrid, ADOT design reduced aggregate and hauling costs by 25% to eliminate a third of aggregate base from the pavement design.

The key mechanism of bearing capacity improvement is demonstrated to show how TriAx Geogrid confines aggregate to better distribute in-service loads over soft subgrades.

The key mechanism of lateral restraint is demonstrated to show how TriAx Geogrid confines aggregate particles to create a stiffening effect above and below the geogrid.

Businesses preparing for a grand opening do not normally put a competitor in charge of a side exit.   But the road-building business is not always about taking the money out of the pocket of the closest threat. More often than not, rivals work together to keep the traveling customer satisfied.   On...
You’ve heard the adage before: There are two sides to every story. But now, in the case of re-engineered geosynthetic reinforcement for paved and unpaved road surfaces, a third side has been added. Since its introduction in the 1980s, geosynthetic reinforcement grid designed for road construction...
During normal precipitation conditions, soil under the surface of the ground expands and contracts with the variations in moisture levels. However, extremely dry seasons can cause underlying layers of soil to shrink drastically and cause the earth above to fracture and depress. This is what...
As part of a project to build a new regional hospital in Owensboro, Ky., surrounding roads Pleasant Valley Drive and Daniels Lane required reconstruction. However, the project’s contract had no provision for stabilizing soft soils below the conventional pavement sections. Proof rolling the prepared...
The San Diego Regional Airport Authority operates the busiest single-runway commercial airport in the United States. For this project, it sought bids to relocate and expand two employee surface parking lots to a different section of the airport campus.   The challenge The client needed a...
With its current park-and-ride facilities operating beyond capacity, Intercity Transit of Lacey, Wash., decided to make effective use of public land by developing a new park-and-ride facility atop a retired landfill.   A feasibility study conducted in 2008 confirmed that differential settlement...
The 20-ft-wide streets of Westlake, Ohio, had centerline and transverse joints every 25 feet that were randomly failing. Due to reflective cracking, concrete streets with asphalt overlays tend to have short service lives—ten years or less—and expensive pavement maintenance afterward. Westlake’s...
Utah County, Utah, which is located south of Salt Lake City, needed to bolster the Nebo Loop Scenic Byway with a quality pavement system that protects against reflective cracking and reduces the maintenance and lifecycle costs of the road. The rugged canyon environment and resulting road layout...
Archived Webinar May 20, 2014 2:00 – 3:00 PM Eastern   Webinar Overview: As traffic loads have increased and infrastructure funding has remained stagnant, the need for improved pavement performance has grown more acute.  Fortunately, new technologies, materials, and design methods are available to...
