Geotextiles: Reliable Fabrics for Supporting & Stabilizing Areas

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. Options include a felt-like nonwoven material as well as a woven polypropylene blend. 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 runoff or site drainage. Nonwovens 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 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
  • Landscapting
  • 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

woven geotextilesBy contrast to the nonwoven materials above, Woven Geotextiles are most commonly used in applications that require increased support and stabilization. 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, using a more natural product like coir or straw is recommended.
Coastal Erosion: ---Woven -- The creeping slope of coastal erosion typically geotextile fabric application, geotextiles, nonwoven, wovencalls for a stronger geotextile, such as woven fabric.
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 controlling erosion caused by water call for 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 for its rigidity and ability to reduce stress.
geotextile fabric application, geotextiles, nonwoven, woven Wind Erosion: ---Woven-- The use of a woven geotextile will allow for wind and water to pass through, but will protect the sediment.
