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.

Geotextile Fabrics are manufactured in different weights to accommodate specific project needs for durability, drainage, and other factors. If you have questions or are unsure which fabric will best suit your project, call us. Our knowledgable customer service representativess are happy to assist you.

One 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 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.

Woven Geotextiles


By contrast to the nonwoven fabrics 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

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 such as coir or straw.

Coastal Erosion: Woven -- The creeping slope of coastal erosion typically calls for a stronger fabric or woven geotextile.

Riverbank Erosion: Coir, Woven, or Nonwoven -- Erosion on the riverbank could use any of the three solutions depending on the extent of the erosion.

Soil Erosion: Coir, Woven, or Nonwoven -- 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.

Water Erosion: Nonwoven -- Most areas needing erosion control due to water require a nonwoven geotextile to help absorb and slow the damaging waters.

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.

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