IMPORTANT NOTES (Preliminary/Conceptual Design)

(1) This printout contains an Application Suggestion which has been prepared by a Tensar affiliate or by LICENSEE to enable the application of Tensar Geogrids to be evaluated by a
qualified and experience professional engineer. The calculations are derived from a standardized software program which generally follows AASHTO or NCMA design methodologies
and which has been modified to incorporate certain properties of Tensar® products.

(2) This printout provides certain limited information for preliminary or conceptual design only, and does not itself constitute a design or plan suitable for construction. A final engineered
design and plan, with drawings and installation details and construction requirements, signed and sealed by a registered professional engineer, is required prior to actual construction.

(3) Any mechanically-stabilized earth structure involves various engineering, design, material, construction and end-use considerations. Many of these are site specific, such as (but not
limited to) terrain and grading, watertable, the nature and strength of the foundation and backfill soils, the quality and compaction of the backfill, surface and subsurface water control
and drainage, the presence of utilities and other elements in or around the structure, use of proper equipment and construction practices during installation, neighboring construction
activity, load factors, other environmental factors and the like. Final determination of the suitability of any information or material for the use contemplated and the manner of use is the
sole responsibility of the user and its professional advisors, who must assume all risk and liability in connection therewith. Tensar assumes no responsibility or liability to the recipient or
any third party for the whole or any part of the content of any Application Suggestion or other work product.
