Heavy Duty Woven Geotextile 70 G/SM 1.1mtr x 50mtr
Our woven geotextile is a filter, separation and stabilisation membrane with excellent drainage and filtration properties used extensively below ground in many different construction/DIY and civil engineering applications.
The product is highly permeable so allows water to pass through it providing outstanding filtration, stabilisation and separation functions. It acts as a filter to prevent the intermixing of different sizes of granular stone layers or soils within a sub-base in driveways, paths, driveways etc. Typical uses for geotextile include ground stabilisation (between the sub-base and subgrade) and around drainage materials.
It also allows the separation of aggregate from the soil thus preventing the aggregate from mixing with the soil and reducing the efficiency and capacity of drainage systems. Our premium 50g/sm geotextile membrane (manufactured from UV stabilised, high tenacity, polypropylene fibres that have been both mechanically and thermally bonded to provide high strength and excellent abrasion characteristics) is comparable in quality but much more cost effective than alternatives brands like Terram, Plantex and Weedban to name a few.
Non-woven geotextile fabric is used in many applications where drainage control, weed prevention, erosion control and ground stabilisation are required. The geotextile has a stable but open structure making it ideal for lining trenches when constructing land drains. The product is also used for wrapping soakaway and water attenuation crates in both small domestic and large commercial projects.
Again, the high permeability of the fabric, means water can percolate through whilst preventing the soakaway becoming silted up. Our geotextile can also be used as a ground stabilisation membrane beneath type 1 or 3 aggregate or hardcore to form a stable base in many hard landscaping and civil engineering applications. Geotextiles provide an effective solution to the problem of constructing a stable granular layer over soft foundation soils.
When stone is placed directly on a soft subgrade, the imposed load often causes intermixing of two layers. This results in contamination of the stone layer and a resulting loss in bearing strength, surface rutting and deformation at the sub-base/subgrade interface.
