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 Nonwoven 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?

  • "Do Not Dig" Fabric is woven orange fabric used in Brownsfield Remediation projects. This material may be required by the EPA when redeveloping areas with contaminated soil.
  • 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.
