Geotextiles Fabric - A Superior Erosion Control Product
Geotextile fabric comes in three main forms: Non-Woven Geotextiles, Woven Geotextiles, and Coir Geotextiles. Each of these materials has its own unique properties making it perfect for the various applications in which it is used. In addition, each geotextile will typically feature a different weight or strength to help meet both light weight requirements and high strength applications.
Geotextile Fabric Options
Our non woven are made from 100% needle punched polypropylene, which is cheaper and more popular than other materials. It is U.V. Stabilized with carbon black, lengthening the life of the fabric.
Nonwoven geotextiles are perfect for filtration applications requiring drainage, stabilization or other water filtering requirements.
Our woven geotextiles are also made from polypropylene, but in slit film or monofilament form. Slit Film is a thin/wide sheet of plastic and Monofilament is oval/round shaped yarn. Both materials are extruded, slit, stretched to align molecular chains, and finally put on a loom to be woven.
This geotextile fabric is best used for road construction, with rip rap, heavy erosion, embankments, and steep slopes.
Coir is a natural product made from coconut fiber. The most common uses for coir are sediment control and soil bio-engineering. Because coir is 100% natural, it is also biodegradable. They support growth and development of vegetation and can be made and used for short term, temporary, or semi-permanent applications.
