Geotextile Fabric rolls
Nonwoven geotextiles are used as filter/separators for ground stabilisation in construction / civil engineering applications. Nonwoven geotextiles are permeable so allow water to pass through providing filtration and separation functions. Permeable polypropylene geotextile fabrics prevent the intermixing of different sizes of granular stone layers or soils within a construction sub-base. Nonwoven geotextile fabrics are used for many applications where drainage control, erosion control and ground stabilisation are required.
Geotextiles can be used to provide ground stabilization, prevent surface collapse and rutting for the following:
- Construction of gravel drives / driveways
- To separate stone layers in car park and overflow car park construction
- For permeable paving surfaces
- For grass pavers, to prevent the root zone soil being washed through into the sub-base stone
- For gravel filled plastic paving grids to prevent the gravel intermixing with the larger sub-base stone layers
- For road and pavement construction
- Under block paving
- Land drains
- Wrapping soakaway crates and SUDS tanks
- Water attenuation & rainwater harvesting
TERRAM & STRATACHECK PLUS needlepunch nonwoven geotextile are calendered for extra stength and supplied in the following builder friendly roll sizes:
- STRATACHECK PLUS Geotextile 1m x 10m (10sqm) - 100gsm polypropylene fabric
- STRATACHECK PLUS Geotextile 2m x 25m (50sqm) - 100gsm polypropylene fabric
- STRATACHECK PLUS Geotextile 2m x 50m (100sqm) - 100gsm polypropylene fabric
- TERRAM Geotextil 4.5m x 100m (450sqm) - 100gsm polyproplene fabric.
Geotextiles can be used to prevent soil/stone intermixing with drainage systems, like french drains, fin drains, box drains, SUDS infiltration boxes / tanks / crates and domestic soak-soakaways. STRATACHECK nonwoven geotextile fabric is easy to install, contours to the ground and is easy to cut using safety knives or scissors. Where overlays are required we suggest a minimum of a 150mm overlay, and these should be tapped, glued or stapled if possible.
