Load Transfer Platforms
When building embankments over weak soils, concrete rafts have often been used to distribute the load evenly onto the piles. A more modern and economical solution is to construct a Load Transfer Platform; these platforms can be reinforced with high strength two-dimensional geogrids. The ability of the Geoweb® three-dimensional system to spread loads effectively allows it to bridge and distribute those loads to a layout using fewer pile columns, increasing the spacing between columns in contrast to traditional concrete pile cap systems. When compared to geogrid solutions for minimising columns, Geoweb® can also use lower grade infill. Geoweb® can be used in single or multiple layer installations.The Geoweb® LTP application for bridging columns in pile platforms is a patent-protected technology of Soiltec GmbH, Germany and is powered by Genuine Geoweb® cellular confinement.
