Geotextile Materials Non Woven, Woven, & Liners
GEI Works offers a wide variety of geotextile, geomembrane, geosynthetics and pond liners. These permeable and impermeable engineered fabrics, when used in association with soil and rock, have the ability to separate, filter water, reinforce the ground and stop erosion. Options include:
GEI Works Inc. offers a variety of PVC, standard and reinforced polypropylene, polyethylene, XR5 and XR3 Elvaloy coated membranes, Urethane and HDPE and coated fabric blends to suit almost any project requirement. Our technical staff will work with you and offer sound advice to ensure your project has the right product.
Geosynthetics can be classified into categories based on materials and method of manufacture. Each is specifically designed to perform to engineered standards. Learn more.
Over the past two decades the use of engineered fabrics has expanded into various civil applications. The introduction of numerous composites such as geogrids and poly meshes (snake and wildlife friendly), woven synthetic fibers, non-wovens filter fabric, needle punched , liners and membranes, and more have produced a whole new market and allowed growth to occur where once it was not possible.
Geosynthetics are now commonly used on roads, airfields, railroads, embankments, retaining structures, reservoirs, canals, dams, bank protection and for coastal engineering.
HDPE geomembrane is used extensively as liner material for landfills or large reservoirs and requires qualified geo fabric installers to competently field assemble the engineered membrane panels. Smaller applications using Pond Liners material is ideal for smaller residential and commercial fish or aquaculture facilities.
Geotextiles have an excellent resistance to UV exposure, cold crack and other environmental demands. The following is a list of our pdf's explaining different uses and applications for these products:

- Geosynthetic Classifications
- Soil Stabilization
- Orange Landfill Capping
- Geosynthetics in Draining and Filtering
Some other great resources include:

- National Menu of Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs)
Typical Geosynthetic & Geomembrane Products:
- Geomembrane & Liners (HDPE & Clay)
- Nonwoven Geo Fabric (needle punched)
- Woven Geo Fabric
- Coconut Fiber Geo Fabric(biodegradable)
- Pond Material and Water Garden Liners
How Are Geosynthetics Supplied?
We supply these geosynthetics primarily on rolls, but can prefabricate water garden liners(small pond liners)and custom make to order for site specific applications (i.e. soil pile covers, rail car gondola liners for FUSRAP or contaminated use, etc).

Other Erosion Control Products
If your project involves fire mitigation, flood repairs, stream bank soil stabilization or restoration in environmentally sensitive areas, we have biodegradable solutions like Coconut fiber Geo-Fabric or Coir-logs that are used with great success in promoting re-vegetation and preventing erosion. These fabrics will totally biodegrade eliminating the need to remove them if a synthetic type were used in the same application.
A good place to investigate uses and research projects and discuss ideas is at the IGS. I would recommend becoming a member to anyone interested in the geosynthetics industry!
