CASE STUDIES




PARAGRID® geogrids are manufactured from PARAWEB® for civil engineering applications, particularly for soil reinforcement. PARAWEB® consists of discrete bundles of parallel high strength synthetic fibres in a tough and durable polymeric sheath.

PARAGRID® The Ultimate Geogrid

Tough, durable, chemical and damage resistant civil engineering construction webbing, ideal for steep slope reinforcement and soil structures

PARAGRID® is a two dimensional geogrid manufactured from PARAWEB® on specially designed equipment that is unique to Linear Composites Ltd.

PARAGRID® can be manufactured up to 4.5 metres wide. The machine direction and cross machine direction members are securely bonded at the cross-over points. The configuration of PARAGRID® is illustrated below in Figure 1.
