Fortrac® 3D

Heavy Tensile Reinforcement Geogrid

Given the global increase in heavy rain events, the construction of slopes with guaranteed long term stability poses a major challenge, particularly when built with steep inclinations.

Fortrac® 3D range offers a stabilisation solution that resists the downward forces of soil mass and achieves a strong bond with soil particles and plant roots.

Through refining the familiar Fortrac geogrid, Fortrac 3D has become a flexible, three-dimensional reinforcement grid made from high-tensile, low-creep multifilament synthetic yarns with integral soil erosion prevention. Two crucial functions are therefore combined in a single product: anti-slip reinforcement and erosion control.

The Fortrac 3D TRM allows the safe construction of steep slopes and their subsequent planting for applications such as embankments, dikes, landfills, landscape structures, reservoirs etc.

A. Anti-slip reinforcement

  • High-tensile, high-modulus, low-creep geogrid
  • Optimum interaction between geosynthetic product and soil
  • High resistance, even in alkaline environments
  • Wide range of tensile strengths

B. Soil retention/erosion control function

  • Three-dimensionally orientated transverse strands for efficient soil retention and prevention of surface erosion
  • Root-penetrable aperture sizes for high vegetation stability
  • Integral structural continuity between three-dimensional transverse strands and reinforcement grid
