Types of Geotextiles

Your One Stop Shop for Geotextiles

Geotextile types usually fall under the categories of woven or non woven but there are specialty fabrics, like TRMs, Orange Do Not Dig, Geonets, and Coir that stand out beyond those two properties.

What are the Common Geotextile Types?

The most common types of geotextiles are woven and non woven.

A woven geotextile could be used for sediment control, unpaved road bases, strengthening paved roads, erosion protection, and subsurface drainage.

It possesses the following features:

  • Woven Polypropylene
  • UV Resistant
  • Rot Resistant
  • Biological Degradation Resistant
  • Chemically Inert

A non woven geotextile is ideal for use with roads, roofs, railroads, ponds, dams, trenches, and landfills.

All of our non woven material possess the following features:

  • 100% Propylene Staple Fibers
  • Needle-Punched
  • Random Network Formation
  • UV Resistant
  • Rot Resistant
  • Biological Degradation Resistant
  • Stable Within 2-13 pH

What are the Types of Specialty Geotextiles?

  • Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) are a type of geosynthetic that provide superior soil stability for rapid vegetation growth.
  • Geogrids have an open grid-like appearance and the ability to effectively reinforce soil.
  • Geonet, like geogrid, is an open grid-like fabric with polymeric strands intersecting at a constant acute angle. It is used to carry relatively large fluid or gas flows.
