What are Geotextiles?
Geotextiles are permeable fabrics, made from either polypropylene or polyester. When used in several different applications, mainly associated with soil, geotextiles have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect, or drain. Geotextile fabrics come in three basic forms: non- woven geotextiles, woven geotextiles (needle punched), or heat bonded geotextiles (structural woven).
To provide effective filtration, drainage and separation of engineering materials in a variety of construction structures associated with a range of transportation and associated infrastructure activities, the use of geotextiles has gained tremendous acceptance over the last 30 years. Geotextile materials, when selected appropriately, allow for the replacement of traditional granular filter and drainage layers, providing a significant environmental and economic benefit.
Geotextiles are a relatively inexpensive product, that when designed and installed correctly can replace traditional granular treatments with significant cost savings, both in aggregate quantities used and traditional labour costs to install such aggregate systems.
We have woven and non-woven geotextiles, and their applications depend solely on geotechnical history and type of project.
Royal Technergy geotextile products incorporate the latest technology and state of the art materials. Using a range of polymers including polypropylene, polyester, polyethylene and aramid to ensure that the most durable polymer is used for performance in a range of environmental and service conditions. You are assured of the most advanced choice of materials when selecting a product supplied by us.
Common Applications of Geotextiles
Geotextiles will efficiently collect surplus water from structures, such as rainwater or surplus water, from the soil and discharge it.
Our geotextiles provide superior hydraulic flow and soil retention, which makes them well suited for filtration in subsurface drainage applications and under hard armour systems.
Geotextiles are used for paved and unpaved roads, where ground conditions have been compromised. As a separation layer, geotextiles can aid preventing the intermixing of dissimilar materials, add to the performance life of the road and reduce the overall thickness of the road section by requiring less aggregate during construction.
High strength geotextiles can be used to reinforce earth structures as the strength of the tape or filament within the fabric may be increased to suit a specific application. Thanks to their high tensile strength they are an ideal reinforcement solution.
Due to the consistent thickness and weight of our Geotextiles, they provide adequate cushioning and protection for critical lining systems.
