4 oz. Nonwoven Geotextile
Filtration Fabric for French Drains
The 4 oz. nonwoven geotextile is an excellent choice for locations in need of drainage fabric. Our nonwoven fabrics are made from a needle-punched polypropylene material that allows them to successfully stabilize an area in need of reinforcement, filtration, or erosion control.
Drainage fabric is UV and rot resistant for extended use in stabilization and filtration applications. Subsurface and french drains often use 4 oz. nonwoven geotextile as pipe wrapping.

Nonwoven Geotextile Applications
In general, the standard nonwoven geotextile is used for around six basic functions which are as follows:
Using a nonwoven fabric for these applications can help provide optimal results for your project. This can help stabilize your area and prevent future costs due to erosion, pooling or other environmental factors. Made from a high UV and rot resistant polypropylene material, these fabrics have been used in several locations and applications including the following:
- Lagoon Closures
- Slope Reinforcement
- Aggregate Separation
- Landfill Piggy Back Construction
- Earth Retaining Structures
- Soil Stabilization
4 oz. Nonwoven Fabric and Drains: One of the most common options for filtration around drains is a lightweight filter fabric. Offering a higher level of permeability and water flow through rate, 4 oz. nonwoven geotextile helps keep unwanted materials out of drains without causing any pooling. This has allowed it to be frequently implemented as subsurface and french drain fabric.
