Late last week, global geosynthetics manufacturer NAUE confirmed that its innovative high-strength geogrid Secugrid® HS has received BBA certification. It’s a significant achievement and an acknowledgement of the high quality of the material. BBA Certification provides assurance of technical compliance within the construction industry.

The certificate was presented to Andy Cracknell, Director of NAUE Geosynthetics Ltd. UK, by BBA’s CEO Claire Curtis-Thomas at the BBA headquarter in Watford, UK.


Receipt of the certificate marks the successful completion of a rigorous independent testing program. The certification assures specifiers and contractors that NAUE’s high-strength geogrid products meet its promises for functionality and performance.

Secugrid® HS geogrids are made of high tenacity polyester (PET) filaments with an extruded polyethylene (PE) protective coating. Individual straps are then connected in a regular array by using a mechanical welding technique to produce a 4.75-metre-wide laid and welded geogrid.

Secugrid® HS Geogrids are typically used as basal reinforcement under embankments with the following conditions:

  • Soft foundation soils
  • Piled foundations
  • Areas prone to subsidence
