Soil reinforcement geogrids are used in long term loading applications and rely predominantly on long term tensile strength which significantly includes factors catering for tensile creep. These strength-based applications include reinforced soil walls & slopes, void spanning, basal embankment reinforcement, load transfer platforms, and veneer stability.

Soil stabilisation geogrids are used in transient loading applications and rely mostly on tensile stiffness, geogrid-soil interlock, and the resulting soil confinement/lateral restraint. These confinement based applications include subgrade stabilisation, pavement optimisation, and soft soil capping.
