GEO-TEXTILE FABRICS "Stop Erosion Before It Starts"

GeoFilterFabric1

DURA-TEX™ --- is a Non-Woven fabric made from high quality polypropylene fibers ... bonded and needle punched to form a strong fabric that retains its dimensional stability and is resistant to damage from construction stresses

The most effective solution is to stop the erosion before it starts

That's where DURA-TEX™ Geotextile Fabric can be very helpful

What Are Filter Fabrics, and How Are They Useful?

Filter fabrics allow water to flow through while filtering out substances like sediment, silt, and dirt, and they are typically used in the construction process during drainage processes. Nonwoven Filter fabrics typically consist of needle-thin pores that help with effective filtration and help with controlling erosion with moderate strength while woven monofilament filter fabrics are woven fabrics with lower water flow rates but higher strength relative to their weight.

Filter fabrics come in lightweight, heavy duty, or even medium heavy versions. This allows a higher amount of control and choice when choosing a filter fabric for applications such as pipes, French drains, retaining wall drainage zones and driveway, parking lot, and laydown yard underlayment.

Benefits of Filter Fabrics

Filter fabrics can provide a large variety of benefits as different types of geosynthetic filter fabrics provide varying levels of support when it comes to separation, drainage, and stabilization. It is important to look at what you are trying to achieve in your application to determine which type and strength of fabric best meets your requirements.

Geo textile filter fabrics can be utilized in a number of ways. Below are some of the most common applications for our nonwoven geotextile fabrics:

Preventing Soil Erosion Around Construction Projects

Most construction projects involve the removal, addition, or manipulation of dirt. In the weeks, months, or years that such projects require to be completed, loose soil spreads outside of the construction zones, causing loose dirt to muddy up nearby sources of water.

As a means of maintaining water quality, many builders erect silt fences around their building sites' borders. These are constructed of geotextile fabrics and fence posts. Silt fences are good for keeping dirt and debris out of nearby streams, rivers, lakes, and ponds as long as these silt fences are placed in good locations, maintained properly, and installed properly.

Building French Drains

Drains are used to keep water out of areas that have been shown to pool or otherwise retain more water than surrounding areas. One of the most popular types of modern drains is the French drain.

To dig a French drain, you’ll first dig a trench that is very slightly sloped. A plastic drain is placed in the bottom, which is then surrounded by rocks and covered by geotextile fabric. Dirt is placed on top of the fabric. The fabric helps keep dirt out of the drain, preventing it from getting clogged and causing soil erosion.

Keeping Beaches Beautiful

Over time, the shoreline of beaches changes. This can cause normal sea levels to get too close to existing structures.

One way to maintain shorelines is to lay down strong geotextile fabric at the current shoreline. Next, tons of sand are placed on top of the fabric. This process has to be repeated every few years to keep barriers from showing.
