Woven Geotextiles for Driveways
Road and Driveway Stabilization Fabric
Question : I am building a driveway and need information and a quote on a 12' wide roll of woven geotextile. What is its length and strength?
Answer: Our woven 200 geotextile is ideal for your purposes. As our medium weight woven geotextile, it provides both separation and stabilization during driveway and road construction. When placed between two mediums, it permanently prevents mixing. As it reinforces the soil, the quality of the soil is improved and it increases structural stability.
The Woven 200 Geotextile has the following ratings and specifications for its use:
- Typical Weight: 4 oz/yd²
- Grab Tensile Strength: 200 lbs.
- Trapezoid Tear Strength: 75 lbs.
- CBR Puncture Resistance: 700 lbs.
Standard roll dimensions for woven 200 geotextile are as follows: 12.5 feet in width by 432 feet in length (12.5' W x 432' L) or 17.5 feet in width by 309 feet in length (17.5' W x 309' L). In total, both rolls provide enough fabric to cover approximately 600 square yards per roll. Estimated roll weight for each roll is 190 pounds.
Woven Geotextile Applications
In general, all woven geotextiles are designed for use in various stabilization, erosion control, and separation activities. Some of the most common uses for a woven geotextile include the following:
- Separation of two Aggregates
- Stabilization of Soils
- Prevention of Mixing Aggregates
- Stabilizing Roads
Since you have mentioned that you will be using this woven geotextile for building a driveway, the woven fabric is a great choice. When compared to nonwoven materials, woven fabrics offer a significantly higher strength while still allowing water to flow through.
In driveway or road construction activities, the main goal is typically to stabilize the soil underneath the road to prevent potholes and other problems from forming during road use. Woven fabrics are a great option for this type of stabilization activity.
