Reinforcements of non paved roads

Solutions to meet high traffic and maximize efficiency in transport on unpaved roads.

More than one utility: The improvement provided by the StrataBase and StrataWeb boosters is attributed to three key mechanisms: 

  • Lateral constraint of displacements: primary mechanism of reinforcement that can be translated as a lateral constraint of the base/sub-base aggregate (ballast/sub-ballast) when it is subjected to surface loads.

  • Improved load capacity: as StrataBase and StrataWeb are materials with high tensile strength, they promote greater soil mobilization, generating greater support capacity in addition to reducing the stress on the subgrade.

  • Membrane Effect: When requested, StrataBase and StrataWeb assume a tensioned membrane shape that provides a reaction to the stress supporting the imposed load.


Reinforcement of Roads

 - Easy application.


 - Ideal for mining and agribusiness service roads.


 - Reinforcement installed in the subgrade contact to optimize the application.

 - Several calculation methods available in the bibliography, with emphasis on Giroud and Han (2004).

 - Rigid geogrids perform better than woven and geotextiles.

 - Geogrid joint strength and stiffness are the most important parameters.

StrataBase Geogrids

StrataBase® is a rigid biaxial geogrid that offers structural reinforcement for roads, paved and unpaved, through its high rigidity, dimensional stability and high strength of its connections.
