MacGrid® WG is a category of meshes with woven structure. Each mesh is comprised of polyester filaments lined with a protective layer of PVC. The characteristics of the meshes allow products to be made with a variable mechanical resistance between 20 and 200 kN/m in the lengthwise direction and between 20 and 110 kN/m sideways.
The polyester core defines the mechanical characteristics of the geomesh, while the PVC lining has the function of protecting the core against damage during the installation operations and against possible chemical and environmental attacks.
MacGrid® WG is mainly used in reinforcement applications for embankments and reinforced earth in the presence of granular (steep slopes and walls) and non cohesive ground.
It may be used alone or jointly with TRESMA® structures when the wall height (h>8m) does not allow use of the TRESMA® structure as the sole reinforcement..
