Roads

ACCESS/HAUL ROADS - PARKING LOTS - HIGHWAYS AND STREETS (BASE REINFORCEMENT)

Applications: Roads

For low cost, geosynthetics can significantly extend the life of everyday structures by preventing the intermixing of subgrade soils and the aggregate base, and/or stabilizing poor subgrades.

Erosion

SHORELINES - SLOPES - SWALES - CHANNELS - CANALS

Applications: Erosion

These were the very first applications of a geotextile in 1958. The fabric, which lies beneath various forms of riprap cover (i.e. rock, gabions and mattresses, concrete pattern-placed units, etc.), allows for free drainage of water while holding back fines thereby preventing shoreline and other erosion.

Drainage

SUBSURFACE DRAINAGE

Applications: Drainage

This is one of the most common applications of geotextiles in the construction of roadways, landfills, athletic fields etc, allowing for rapid removal of water or other fluids while providing excellent soil retention, assuring long-term free flowing drainage.

Embankments

REINFORCED EMBANKMENTS - STEEPENED SLOPES

Applications: Embankments

Common applications include earth dams, embankments on soft foundation soils, levees, highway embankments, landslide repair, landfills, dikes and levees.

SRW Walls

SEGMENTAL RETAINING WALLS

Applications: Segmental Retaining Walls

In 2006, the GX® Geogrid product line was developed specifically for this application, and delivers the most efficient Long-Term Design Strengths (LTDS) in the industry. Visit our website for full technical data including block connection test results.

Alternative Walls

OTHER PERMANENT AND TEMPORARY MSE WALLS

Applications: Alternative Walls

Several examples of cost-effective Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) structures are temporary roadway detours, wrapped faced walls, highway bridge construction.

Pavements

PAVEMENT RESTORATION

Applications: Pavements

Asphalt overlay fabrics can extend the life of all existing paved areas. These specially manufactured nonwoven geotextiles are first saturated with heated liquid asphalt during installation, and creates a moisture barrier between old and new pavement. In addition, they absorb stresses to retard reflective cracking, thereby improving and extending the overall performance of the new overlay.

Erosion Blankets

EROSION CONTROL BLANKETS - (TEMPORARY) - EROSION APPLICATIONS

Applications: Erosion Blankets

Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs) are ideal solutions for the short-term challenges of establishing vegetation in low to moderate erosion applications such as: subtle grades to steep 1:1 slopes; swales; moderate flow channels.

Turf Reinforcement

TURF REINFORCEMENT MATS - (PERMANENT)

Applications: Turf Reinforcement

Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) are for those moderate to severe applications that require both permanent and reinforced vegetation in addition to the immediate needs of preventing surface erosion while establishing vegetation.

Landscape

LANDSCAPE - GROUND COVER FABRICS

Applications: Landscape

Landscape fabrics come in a variety of weights and types, from DIY all-purpose to the professional landscaper and nurseries. Their primary functions are separation and friction, weed block, moisture retention, patio/paver underlayment, and drainage filter fabric.
