Geogrid achieves BBA certification

NETHERLANDS-BASED Colbond Geosynthetics has obtained full BBA (British Board of Agrèment) certification for its Enkagrid PRO welded polyester geogrid.

The product has been approved for use in highways applications for road and bridge embankments with slopes of up to 70°. Five grades are available and the geogrid is supplied in 50m or 100m long rolls 2.45m or 5m wide.

Enkagrid PRO was launched in 1999 after an eight-year research and development programme.

The BBA certification process began last year with detailed examination of Colbond's manufacturing and quality control procedures outlined in its ISO 9001:2000 registration. Extensive testing was also carried out to determine the long-term design strength of the product under different environmental conditions.

Maccaferri is the UK distributor for Enkagrid and all Colbond's civil engineering products.
