GEOSYNTHETICS IN TRACK BALLAST STABILISATION
Approved by Network Rail in the UK and national rail authorities across the world, Tensar TriAx TX190L geogrid is specifically designed for use in track beds. The unique large aperture triaxial structure of Tensar TriAx TX190L is designed specifically for track ballast stabilisation and is scientifically proven to lock ballast in place limiting lateral movement and keeping tracks aligned. This technology reduces the rate of ballast degradation and settlement to extend the track maintenance cycle.
Geoweb cellular confinement system can help create high-stiffness ballast layers by confining the ballast within the 3D structure creating a stiffened slab which increases load bearing capacity and minimises horizontal and vertical movement. The perforated structure of Geoweb allows lateral drainage of water from within the ballast.
How Geofabrics can help with track ballast stabilisation:
- Delivers significant reductions in maintenance cycles on railway tracks
- Reduces damage from rain and penetration of water
