Nonwoven Geotextile Applications

While the non woven fabric can be used in almost any stabilization, separation or cushioning application, they are most commonly used in areas that also require filtration. The non woven design of the material provides a higher rate of flow through, making it easier for water to pass through the material. Nonwoven Geotextiles are typically classified in the following categories:

Light Weight Geotextiles Medium Weight Geotextiles Heavy Weight
Uses: Drainage, Landscaping, Filter Fabrics, Asphalt Overlay Uses: Erosion Control, Stabilization, Drainage, Aggregate Separation Uses: Geomembrane Cushioning, Road Stabilization

Common Applications

installing geotextilesAsphalt Overlay: When constant cracking in asphalt becomes a problem, geotextiles can be used to help provide an extra layer of support. Placing these geotextiles down before the asphalt can help prevent further cracking and allows the roads to have further flexibility during their use.

Drainage: One of the most common applications for this non woven fabric is for use in filtration around french drains and subsurface drains. These fabrics create a flow through the material that helps filter out silt while still allowing water to flow through the fabric. Uses include:

  • French Drains
  • Subsurface Drains
  • Under Drains

Aggregate Separation:
For areas where stabilization is required, non woven fabric geotextiles play an important role of allowing water to pass through the material. This provides a stable layer of material that will not weaken due to water.
