ROADS & RAIL
When compared to traditional road and rail construction methods Cross Country’s geosynthetics can reduce the use of natural resources, accelerate construction schedules and reduce maintenance costs
Geogrids are a category of geosynthetic materials used to provide stabilization and reinforcement to poor soils during construction. They are commonly made from materials such as polypropylene or polyester and are manufactured using methods such as punching and drawing heated sheets of polypropylene or knitting together grids of polyester straps.
Geotextiles are a category of geosynthetics which can be used to separate, filter, reinforce or protect soils used in civil construction. They are typically made from synthetic materials such as polypropylene or polyester and manufactured by weaving, needle punching or heat bonding these materials into a dimensionally stable matrix.
3-dimensional honeycomb-like structures filled with soil, rock or concrete. The GCS structure, often called a geocell, is made of strips of polymer sheet or geotextile connected at staggered points so that, when the strips are pulled apart, a large honey-comb mat is formed. The GCS provides both a physical containment of a depth of soil and a transfer of load through the GCS.
