Products | July 15, 2010 | By:

Tensar International Corporation’s TriAx geogrid, and the technical developments it represents, won an IGS 2010 Award earlier this year, presented by the International Geosynthetics Society.

Tim Oliver, Tensar International vice president of marketing, said: “The IGS Award is all the more significant because it is presented for achievement in the period since 2005, not just the best in one year.”

The citation for the IGS 2010 Award was presented at the IGS’s 9th International Conference on Geosynthetics in Brazil in May, stated: ‘This IGS award is given to Tensar for the development and implementation of a triangular geogrid intended to display properties not achievable with conventional square or rectangular geogrids. The triangular geogrid has the capacity to develop more isotropic stiffness and this is expected to provide potential benefits across many applications.’
