Gridshield UHD is a uniaxial geogrid designed for soil stabilisation and reinforcement. It is manufactured from high density polyethylene (HDPE) polymer sheet. The apertures in the HDPE sheet are formed through the process of extruding, punching and then heating and longitudinal stretching.

Uniaxial Gridshield has high tensile strength under load and low creep deformation. It is used for applications where the principal stress direction is known and is perfect for reinforcement in block walls, earth walls, slope and bridge abutments.

GeoFlow - Geoflow is a high performance geocomposite for drainage and gas management applications

Geoflow consists of a biaxial geonet manufactured from high density polyethylene heat bonded to a polypropylene nonwoven geotextile fabric available in either a single or double-sided configuration. The geonet provides a flow path for liquid and gases and the geotextile acts as a filter and separator, keeping soil and or waste particles out of the geonet drainage core.
