HAVING DIFFICULTY SOURCING ENOUGH GOOD QUALITY AGGREGATE? TCS COULD PROVIDE THE ANSWER
To quote the International Geosynthetics Society ‘Did You Know that geosynthetics can reduce the use of aggregate in infrastructure construction by over 50% and up to 90% in some cases?’ Not only can geotextiles, geogrids, and drainage composites bring significant savings in aggregate thicknesses but geosynthetics may also permit the use of lower quality aggregates by increasing their performance characteristics.
SAVE UP TO 50% OF THE AMOUNT OF STONE YOU WOULD NORMALLY USE.
Using stabilisation geogrids like Tensar® TriAx® as an example, it is regularly possible to reduce the thickness of aggregate layers under trafficked areas like roads and car parks by 50% and maintain, or even improve, overall performance. These geogrids laterally restrain the aggregate particles and stabilise them thereby providing a stiffened layer that performs better than significantly thicker layers without stabilisation. Huge aggregate savings are possible. Additionally, reduced aggregate thicknesses usually means less excavation and disposal.
