6 oz. Nonwoven Geotextile for Drainage and Filtration
The 6 oz. nonwoven geotextile is a medium weight filter fabric used for a range of erosion control, drainage and filtration applications. Built with a needle-punched design, these fabrics offer the perfect blend of strength, filtration and drainage.
Common NonWoven Geotextile Applications:
- Rip Rap Stabilization
- Shoreline Erosion Control
- French Drains
- Subsoil Separation
- Filtration Applications
- Subsurface Drainage
- Farm or Stall Stabilization
6 oz. filter geotextiles are typically sold by the roll in sizes of either 12.5 ft. by 360 ft. or 15 ft. by 300 ft.

Nonwoven Geotextile Applications
Nonwoven geotextile filter fabrics are generally used for two basic functions:
- Filtration: As water passes from a layer of fine-grained soil to a coarse-grained soil, the fabric acts as a filter, retaining fine particles.
- Drainage: Protection of drainage areas can be an important requirement for any construction site or work area. Nonwovens work here to prevent soil, large particles and other items from entering a drain system.
Filtration and Drainage applications are also commonly seen in road work or stabilization efforts. Having a layer of nonwoven placed here can help to effectively drain water without leaving pockets or uneven areas in the bottom aggregate.
Nonwoven Geotextiles & Stalls
Another common use for 6 oz. geotextiles filters is around stalls or farms. Here, water often mixes into the surrounding soil to create high levels of mud. By using a nonwoven geotextile, these fabrics can help stabilize the area and filter out water.
