Strata Systems geosynthetics reinforce soils in a wide variety of applications, including retaining walls, reinforced steep slopes, highway and rail embankments, landslide repairs, landfills, dams, levees, temporary walls, and other applications.
Stratagrid® is a precision knitted geogrid that offers superior junction strength and a high coefficient of soil interaction. Stratagrid® is made with high molecular weight and high tenacity polyester yarns and knitted into a dimensionally stable network of apertures providing tensile reinforcement both machine- and cross-directionally. A proprietary UV-stabilized saturated coating is then applied to Stratagrid®, further strengthening the geogrid. Stratagrid®’s coating process exposes the polyester fiber to much lower temperatures than other coated geosynthetics, thereby minimizing fiber degradation. Stratagrid® is also available with a smaller aperture size as Microgrid® and is used a secondary reinforcement method in steep slopes and as slope facing reinforcement.
Sleeve-It™ is the pre-engineered solution for building fence-ready, code compliant retaining walls. Fence and handrails installed in the Sleeve-It™ system directly behind the wall unit will meet the International Building Code requirements. The Sleeve-It™ system uses a cantilever design to engage the overlying soil mass, providing resistance to the fence load. For the past twenty years installing fence directly behind a segmental retaining wall has been problematic. Today, Sleeve-It™ has the solution. The Sleeve-It™ system provides both ease of installation and structural integrity that is code compliant.
StrataDrain™ is a high flow, fusion-bonded, geonet/geotextile drainage composite which aids in the drainage of many soil and foundation reinforcement applications. StrataDrain™ can be used as a wick drain in embankments, an underdrain in foundations, an inceptor drain in slopes and as a wall drain for both foundation and retaining walls.
The strength and uniformity of the fusion bond between StrataDrain™’s layers makes them highly resistant to layer separation. StrataDrain™ has excellent hydraulic performance and minimizes a project’s potential for failure planes, caused by the fabric portion of the composite sliding on the drainage core.
