Geotextiles are permeable fabrics that are extremely versatile and can be used in a number of applications including separation, reinforcement, protection, drainage and filtration activities. Stratec offer Woven, Non-woven and High Strength Polyester Geotextiles.

Non-woven Geotextiles

Non-woven Geotextiles explained: A non-woven Geotextile is a sheet of fabric that is generally made from polypropylene or polyester. The fibres are bonded together by chemical or heat treatment. The result is a smoother yet stiffer product with reduced pore size with increased strength.

Often geotextiles are used in civil construction projects to improve the characteristics of the soil. When soil is considered poor quality, non-woven Geotextiles can make it more manageable. This in turn allows the problematic ground to become suitable for use.

  • Ground stabilisation
  • Landscape and building work
  • Soil separation
  • Filtration applications
  • French drains

Woven Geotextiles

Woven Geotextiles explained: Woven Geotextiles are made by weaving polypropylene tapes together. Using this crisscross pattern produces a fabric with a higher tensile strength . This particular geotextile is designed for use in civil engineering projects including roadworks, drainage systems and erosion control.

Woven geotextiles increase the load capacity of traffic areas by distributing weight more evenly and are also suitable for filtration, separation, and reinforcement.

Woven Geotextiles combine high tensile strength with exceptional puncture resistance resulting in outstanding performance and longevity. They are offer resistance against acids, alkalis, organic compounds, and UV.

  • Highways
  • Pavements
  • Slopes
  • Car parks
  • Landfill
  • Coastal Defences
  • Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems

High Strength Polyester Geotextiles

High Strength Polyester Geotextiles explained: High Strength Polyester Geotextiles are made using a weft-insertion knitting process, allowing strength without the elongation associated with polypropylene woven materials. The characteristics of these Geotextiles make them excellent with functions such as stabilisation, separation, reinforcement, drainage, and filtration.

High Strength Polyester Geotextiles are particularly effective as a reinforcement layer, as they prevent the construction layers by increasing the strength of the granular layers and soil platforms, thereby increasing the longevity of installations. They are suitable for use under extremely heavy loads and coarse material, such as embankments or basal reinforcement.

  • Coastal defence works
  • Reinforced soil structures
  • Retaining walls and steep slopes
  • Embankments over soft sub-soil
  • Embankments over piles
  • Load transfer platforms
  • Roadways
