Reinforcement Chart

Document imprimable.pdf

Match your wall to the conditions below to find which width and the number of layers of AB Reinforcement Grid you will need. To determine the number of rolls needed, multiply the length of your wall (in feet) by the number of layers needed, and then divide by 50 (the length of a roll of geogrid). Typically most soils will be considered clay, for sand conditions outlined in the table the soil must be a clean, granular material. Click here for more information on soil types.

Soil reinforcement increases the strength of the wall by creating a reinforced mass of soil behind the blocks. The weight of the reinforced soil mass combines with the blocks for a heavier, stronger wall. The above chart is for estimating geogrid quantities only. *For walls with driveways above, on the last layer of geogrid, it will need to be extended back 7 ft (2.1 m). The geogrid must be installed perpendicular to the wall (rolled out from the front of the block to the back of the excavated area).
