Geotextile Comparison

Geotextile Product Comparison

Choosing the right geotextile for your application is often dependant on several different factors including soil types, soil texture, application and the amount of water/rainfall in your area. In general, geotextiles are typically classified as either a woven or a non woven material.

Non Woven Geotextile Comparison

Non Woven Geotextiles are typically grouped into three different classes: light weight, medium weight, heavy weight.

Type Weights Applications
Light Weight 3.1 oz. to 4.2 oz. High Drainage Areas, Landscaping, Asphalt Overlay
Medium Weight 6 oz. to 8 oz. Drain Filtration, Erosion Control, Aggregate Separation
Heavy Weight 10 oz. to 16 oz. Aggregate Separation, High Filtration Areas

Comparison between each of these models can be seen in the information provided below. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time to discuss your requirements (772-646-0597 )
