ParaLink geogrids (Figure 1 and Figure 2) are planar structure consisting of a monoaxial array of composite geosynthetics strips.
Each single longitudinal strip has a core of high tenacity polyester yarns tendons encased in a polyethylene sheath; the single strips are connected by cross-laid polyethylene strips to form a grid configuration to the composite. ParaLink is CE certified for reinforcement applications and approved by the BBA (British Board of Agreement).
ParaLink is widely used in civil engineering for soil reinforcement application including reinforced soils walls and basal reinforcement applications. ParaLink provides the high performance and reassurance also in the most demanding applications such as embankment over piles or soils subjected to voids.
