Our needle-punched Polyester (PES) and Polypropylene (PP) geotextile can range in thickness from a thin, light weight material as 50gsm to a fairly thick felt-type material as 1200gsm and with its largest width of 7,2 meters.
PRIMARY USES FOR GEOTEXTILES
- Drainage and Filtration
Supports a road or structure when the foundation soils are weak or soft.
Erosion protections for stream banks, dumps, culverts, ditches, stream channels, shorelines and bridge structures.
Separates two distinct layers of soil in roadways, in the field of water reservoirs, dumps, and gardens.
Protects the geo-membranes in disposal areas, tunnels, undergrounds.
4) DRAINAGE AND FILTRATION
Acts as a filter through which water passes while it restricts fine-grained soil from entering into coarse-grained soil.
Used in roadways, under parking lots, walls, athletic fields, tennis courts and other areas.
MAIN APPLICATION AREAS
Road and motorways, bridge structures
Water basins and dumps, stream channels, coastal defenses
Tunnels, undergrounds, culverts, drainage ditches
Railway and airport embankments
Flooring of large areas and separations
Athletic fields, tennis courts, sport grounds
Embankments and shore protections
Lawns, artificial turfs
Parking and storage facilities
Reservoir basins, disposal areas
ADVANTAGES OF GEOTEXTILES
Improves load distribution and avoids the gravel contamination by the earth.
Financial profit, because the use of geotextile allows reducing the thickness of the filling layer.
Separates the subsoil from the aggregate and provides tensile reinforcement to ensure high quality soil stabilization.
Mechanical reinforcement, as it contributes towards the distribution-in a more uniform way as to the ground-of the loads done by vehicles circulating on the large square.
Retards reflective cracking on roads and increases the fatigue life of pavement.
Protects the geo-membranes against the punching action caused by the possible presence in the ground of pointed material and, at the same time, it is a very good work surface for the laying and the junction of the geo-membrane itself.
With its largest width of 7,2 meters, reduces the cost of labor and prevents soil erosion.
Strong and long lasting against worn out, heat and getting rot.
Separators in the garden, as it prevent the contamination between the transition layer of sand and the present ground.
Allows water to drain in to the trench with its capillary feature, while it permanently separates the different soil materials.
Reduces the excavation cost due to lower construction thickness.
In the lawns and sport grounds acts as separation layers and prevents soil erosion.
In the dumps and water basins, carries out the function of drainage of possible liquid's or gasses trapped under the geo-membrane.
In the railway embankments, reinforces the soil layers and reduces the danger of failure against rapid force.
Provides longer structure life.
Prevents internal soil erosion and hydraulic failure.
Assures the protection of the sealing layer against abrasion.
Drainage, as it allows, together with the layer of sand, to carry water towards proper collecting devices which are as much essential as the ground in place is of cohesive nature.
