GeoGrid

on Mar 21

Retaining Wall Held Together with GeoGridGeoGrid is used for reinforcement in the construction of concrete modular block retaining walls.  It is composed of high molecular weight, high tenacity multi-filament polyester yarns that are woven into a stable grid network and placed under tension.  It comes in different tensile strengths, roll widths, and lengths.   Acting as a ‘dead man’ did in the age of railroad tie walls, geogrid is installed at various standard heights in a block retaining wall.

There are engineered specifications for applications and heights of walls for the St.Louis and Jefferson County, MO areas. Under normal circumstances, any wall over 3′-6″ should have geogrid installed unless specific arrangements are made with a local structural engineer.  Without the proper use of geogrid a retaining wall can fail, leaving the homeowner or business owner with a huge headache.  A wall can not be straightened once it leans out without taking down the wall and rebuilding it piece by piece.  Do yourself a favor and make sure GeoGrid is installed in your new retaining wall!
