Innovation for long-lived pavements

SGB grid is a high-performance pavement reinforcement geogrid, engineered specifically for improving the modulus values of the pavement base layers. SGB grid series is manufactured with industry-leading stress strain values to provide higher tensile resistance at lower elongations. Coupled with a high degree of interaction with the infill material, SGB grids provide the best value for pavement reinforcement as compared to any other solution. With a Strength of 20kN/m to 150 kN/m, SGB grid has a width of 5 m providing low overlaps and reducing wastage.

“SGB grid series, is an economical and effective solution to optimise pavement costs and improve pavement life. There are no two ways about it!”

With reduction of pavement crust thickness, easy installation, increased speed in construction, and decrease in carbon footprint, it is easier to make the decision to prefer SGB over conventional solutions.

SGB grid solutions are designed and adhere to MoRTH and IRC guidelines and are fully certified and tested by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) for Indian conditions.

Please get in touch for any kind of design consultation for optimizing pavement cost. 

What impact does it create?





How it’s made?

SGB Grid is manufactured in the state-of-the-art manufacturing plant located in India.

The manufacturing process involves 3 phases:

| Beaming

A predetermined number of yarn ends are pulled from a creel and are wound onto a large cylindrical beam. We have fully automated, highly sophisticated beaming machinery, which ensures uniformity in yarn tension and take-up and unwinding stability.

| Knitting

Using state-of-the-art knitting machines, high tenacity Polyester yarn is precision-knitted into a dimensionally stable network of apertures that serves as a highly stable, high modulus precursor to the coating process. 

| Coating

The greige fabric obtained from the processes described above is taken on to a one-of-a-kind, ultra-modern coating machine where the greige fabric is coated with a proprietary SBR-based coating compound, which lends it durability, dimensional stability and resistance to installation damage.


Where can SGB Grid be a solution?

We guide engineers, contractors, and owners to use StrataGrid™ to achieve cost effective, sustainable, and reliable solutions for various site development challenges.

The admirable labours of SGB Grid


How long does it last?

The dilemma facing most design engineers is that all geosynthetic reinforcements are not created equal. The long-term performance of a geogrid is dependent on several factors such as raw materials used, the manufacturing process adopted, the designs, and the end application.

Since, geogrids are used for critical designs, it is essential to have a clear understanding of the above factors. Strata SGB Grid undergoes exhaustive testing at internationally reputed laboratories to define all of the above factors.
