Providing the most comprehensive geosynthetic lines in the industry

Syntec/GSE Syntec SBX15 US Fabric Equivalent is BaseGrid 15

BaseGrid 15 is an integrally formed, polypropylene, bi-axial geogrid with a load transfer mechanism of positive mechanical interlock. BaseGrid 15 is designed for base reinforcement and subgrade improvement. BaseGrid 15 meets the following M.A.R.V. values except where noted:

Syntec SBX15 is an integrally formed, bi-axial geogrid made from the highest quality polypropylene resin. Syntec SBx Geogrids off the most economical, expedient and reliable solution to stabilize weak soils or reinforce aggregate base materials. SBx geogrids confine stone and soil particles to prevent lateral shearing. When used, vehicular and other loads are spread over a much broader surface area, thus reducing the pressure applied to the subgrade. Syntec SBX15 meets the following M.A.R.V. values except where noted:
