Woven Stabilization Fabric
Woven geotextiles are some of the strongest fabrics available for erosion control, stabilization, and aggregate separation. Offering an increased grab tensile strength, woven geotextile fabrics offer a robust design that allows them to be successfully implemented in almost any location, including the following:
- Rip Rap

Woven Fabric Advantages
Woven geotextile fabric is constructed by blending and weaving fibers. The result is a product that is not only strong, but also remarkably well equipped to handle drainage and erosion control problems.
- High in Strength
- UV Resistant
- Rot Resistant
- Resists Biological Degradation
- Chemically Inert
- Increases the Life of your Roads
- Strengthens and Supports Aggregates
Woven Geotextile Uses and Applications
- Road Stabilization
- Ground Stabilization
- Railroad Support
- Aggregate Separation
- Rip Rap Support
- Erosion Control
Road Stabilization and Woven Fabrics
One of the most popular options for the woven geotextiles is in ground or road stabilization. During road construction, there is commonly a sub grade, aggregate, and then pavement. What geotextiles work to do is provide a layer of support between the sub-grade and the aggregate.
When water reaches seeps through, aggregate will remain in place to prevent pockets of space. This increases the overall strength of the road.
- Stabilizes Areas Under Roads
- Supports Weight from Pavement or Vehicles
- Effectively Separates Aggregate Layers
- Prevents Road Failures
