12 oz. Nonwoven Geotextile for Erosion Control, Separation and Underlayment

The 12 oz. Nonwoven Geotextile is 12 oz. nonwoven geotextilea high strength erosion control fabric used in separation, drainage and underlayment applications. The 12 oz. weight is a high strength nonwoven fabric. Made from robust materials, these fabrics create a strong, yet permeable fabric that can successfully be implemented under soil, aggregate or pavers. This non woven geotextile fabric is perfect for use in areas that require a combination of strength and filtration.

All geotextiles are sold by the roll and are available in roll sizes of either 12.5 ft. x 300 ft. or 15 ft. x 300 ft. Looking for a lighter weight fabric? Check out our Non Woven Geotextiles.

Why Use a 12 oz Nonwoven Geotextile?

When compared to other nonwoven geotextile fabrics, the 12 oz. model works to provide additional strength during its use. Similar to its woven alternative, 12 oz. nonwoven geotextiles feature a grab tensile strength of 300 pounds. This increased strength provides additional options for areas that will be placing a significant amount of weight on top of the fabric. If you are looking for something a little lighter or for an application that is slightly less demanding, check our our Non Woven Erosion Control Fabric page. Products include 3 oz to 16 oz fabric options.

Additional Erosion Control Fabric Options

While the geotextile offer a high strength, long-lasting option for erosion control, not every location requires a fabric that will last forever. For areas needing short-term erosion control or stabilization around vegetation, a biodegradable material is the more common option. This can include any of the following:

  • Straw Mats
  • Coconut Coir Mats
  • Wood Fiber Blends
  • Straw/Coco Fiber Mats
  • Biodegradable Coir Logs
  • Coir Wattles

For more information regarding all of our biodegradable options, check out the Coir/Natural Fiber Page.
