Nebralejo Group is distributor for Spain of Tensar products, world leader in the manufacture and supply of products and systems for stabilization and soil reinforcement.
Based on the characteristic properties of Tensar geogrids, Tensar Technology is widely adopted for problems of stabilization and soil reinforcement.
The Tensar Technology can achieve cost savings and time on their projects. We can help you apply Tensar Technology to improve the economic performance of your project.
There are five major applications of TriAx geogrids for soil stabilization:
REDUCTION LAYER THICKNES
By reducing the thickness of the layer to 50% without any loss of performance compared with traditional designs without reinforcement, the contractor can achieve significant cost savings and save up to 50% in CO2 emissions during construction.
INCREASE OF LIFE
The rehabilitation of roads, especially if it involves a deep reconstruction, is an expensive work for the owner thereof.
A suitable study may demonstrate that the inclusion of a mechanically stabilized layer TriAx, increase pavement life by a factor of 3 or higher, thereby reducing the annual maintenance budget for replacing the asphalt layer approximately 50 %.
ENHANCING THE BEARING CAPACITY
In soft or inadequate (IN) soils, such as in crowds, it is sometimes necessary to construct linear works that have to withstand heavy traffic. An example is the access and working platforms for cranes during installation of wind turbines in wind farms where the bearing capacity must be increased with a design that allows for the work safely.
FOUNDATIONS ON SOFT FLOORS
Tensar has developed techniques for cementing on soft soils. Tensar Technology has been improved over time to "make the impossible possible" and has now become the preferred method for cementing marshes, marshes and industrial landfills.
DIFFERENTIAL CONTROL OF SEATS
Many works take place in areas where fillers have different subgrade bearing capacity and the pavement layers are very prone to differential settlement. Throughout our history, over the past 30 years have visited Tensar projects after many years in operation, confirming that the initial profile of the ground was preserved.
Savings of up to 75% are achieved compared with conventional solutions, such as piles, when a TriAx based geogrids as support for a corridor solution is used.
ECOLOGICAL WALL (TENSARTECH GREENSLOPE)
The Green Wall is the preferred Landscapers, Architects and Designers to adapt the construction of retaining structures the environment, whether natural or landscaping system. It is based on reinforcing geogrids Tensar uniaxial floor has the distinction of having a fully vegetized facing that obscures the presence of any rigid element solution. In the same structural element functions containment and gardening together.
Combining an attractive, completely natural look with savings of up to 75% over conventional earth-retaining methods, TensarTech GreenSlope offers an ideal solution for steep slopes and embankments up to 70º, particularly in environmentally-sensitive areas.
Horizontal layers of Tensar’s uniaxial geogrids create a stable, reinforced soil mass, with durable steel units positively linked at the face using a high efficiency bodkin connection. This facing is lined during installation with an erosion mat that helps to retain a thin topsoil veneer and establish the vegetation cover, with a choice of continuous slope or terraced face structure to allow irrigation.
Self colour steel facings are generally employed for 60 year design life galvanised facings are available for 120 year design life.

- Rapid, economical construction.
- Allow use of site-won materials, including clays.
- Optimises the use of available space.
- Tolerant of differential settlement.
- No specialist skills needed.
