Wallbarn supply a large geotextile fabric range in a number of different densities & materials. This geotextile fabric range is absolutely ideal for a many different uses, including protection, drainage, filtration, soil stabilisation & green roofing.
What is a Geotextile Fabric?
A geotextile fabric is a nonwoven fabric which contains permeable membranes which allow water to pass through whilst still holding the particles in place. The soil does not become saturated, thereby improving the strength and stability of the ground. The makeup of the fabric is uniform throughout the roll, so no weak spots will be present in the layer.
Geotextile fabrics also provide a very viable, flexible, permeable protection and cushioning layer on areas such as reservoirs and landfills. A preliminary layer can be installed to prevent soil movement and stones from piercing delicate membranes above.
A geotextile fabric will also act as an extremely effective as subterranean soil stabilisation membranes. Either covering buried pipes or lining drains, they will ensure the passage of water without risk of land slippage, greatly improving the quality of the area.
Wide Range of Applications
Geotextile fabrics are available manufactured in polypropylene or recycled polyester. The material is supplied packed into tight rolls and we can supply material in a variety of roll sizes, from 1 metre wide up to 6 metres wide for very large-scale projects.
These super-jumbo rolls make installation much faster and easier as there will be less individual rolls to sew or seal together – ideal for applications such as landfills.
Geotextile products also have a wide range of use in conjunction with civil engineering solutions. These can be:
- a geotextile filter-fabric in road construction
- geotextiles prevent drainage systems from clogging with fine particles
- erosion control with geotextiles
- geotextiles are used as soil reinforcement agents & as a filter medium in road construction
A geotextile fabric is also particularly well suited for use with horticultural solutions. Some of these uses are:
- prevention of weed growth with geotextiles: ‘a weed control fabric’, often by placing a geotextile layer on top of bare soil & then covering it with a mulch
- moisture conservation with geotextiles, again by placing the geotextile above the soil & applying a mulch above
- a filter layer (e.g. beneath a vegetated roof)
- a weed control layer (e.g. beneath a gravel path)
