Woven & Nonwoven Geotextile Fabric Application

Geotextiles: Reliable Fabrics for Soil Stabilization & Support

Woven and Non Woven Geotextiles are robust and durable fabrics designed to increase soil stabilization and ground support in a given location. Typically made from polypropylene fibers, these geotextiles are high in strength to allow for maximum slope support, stabilization and erosion control. Geo fabric options include a felt-like nonwoven fabric as well as a woven polypropylene geotextile. Learn more through the links below or contact our team by phone at +1-772-646-0597.

Non Woven Geotextiles

nonwoven geotextilesOne of the most popular options for drainage, filtration and stabilization is the Nonwoven Geotextile Fabric. Constructed from a felt-like fabric, these geotextiles are light in weight and able to both filter and reinforce a construction areas. Nonwoven geotextiles are commonly used in ditches, around pipes, underneath drains, or in other areas dealing with high levels of subsurface drainage or site runoff. Nonwoven fabrics are typically classified into one of three categories: light weight, medium weight or heavy weight.

Light Weight Geotextiles Medium Weight Geotextiles Heavy Weight
Geotextiles
Description: Light weight geotextiles offer some of the highest flow through rates possible for any synthetic material. Description: Medium weight geotextiles are high in both strength and popularity, featuring some of our most commonly used non woven fabrics. Uses: Heavy weight geotextiles offer the highest amount of strength and stabilization. Their tensile strength is comparable to woven fabrics.

Great for use as:

  • High Drainage Areas
  • Landscaping
  • Asphalt Overlay
  • French Drains
  • Filtration

Great for use as:

  • Filtration
  • Stabilization
  • Aggregate Separation
  • Erosion Control

Great for use as:

  • Rip Rap
  • High Aggregate Separation
  • Filtration
  • Road Stabilization

 

Woven Geotextiles

This will include implementation under dirt roads, rip rap, driveways or other areas with increased traffic. Models include the following:

Browse By Erosion Type:

geotextile fabric application, geotextiles, nonwoven, woven Beach Erosion: Coir -- Because sand is such a light soil and the beach is home to so many living things, it is recommended to use a natural fiber product or erosion control mat like coir or straw.

Coastal Erosion: Woven -- The creeping slope of coastal erosion typically geotextile fabric application, geotextiles, nonwoven, wovencalls for a stronger fabric or woven geotextile.
geotextile fabric application, geotextiles, nonwoven, woven Riverbank Erosion: Coir, Woven, or Non Woven -- Erosion on the riverbank could use any of the three solutions, depending on the extent of the erosion.
geotextile fabric application, geotextiles, nonwoven, woven Soil Erosion: Coir, Woven, or Non Woven -- Soil erosion could also use any of the three solutions. Each area or soil will have its own unique properties that help determine the type of geotextile used.

geotextile fabric application, geotextiles, nonwoven, woven Water Erosion: Non Woven -- Most areas needing erosion control due to water require a nonwoven geotextile to help absorb and slow the damaging waters.
geotextile fabric application, geotextiles, nonwoven, woven Weathering and Erosion: Geogrid -- Weathering is increased by the elements and chemicals surrounding or affecting the eroded area. We recommend using a geogrid textile for its strength, rigidity and ability to reduce stress.

geotextile fabric application, geotextiles, nonwoven, woven Wind Erosion: Woven -- The use of woven geotextiles allows for wind and water to pass through, but will protect the sediment.
