Geotextiles perform the functions of separation and filtration in the construction of subbase granular layers. Geotextiles are permeable and allow water to filter through, while blocking larger stone or soil particles from passing through. This separator / filter function prevents the intermixing of granular subbase layers and the passage of stone particles that could cause the failure of the surface or pavement structure. Geotextiles are used to provide protection and puncture resistance to membranes in landfills, green roof systems and drainage layers.
ABG geotextiles are used in many civil engineering and construction applications; including the construction of roads, highways, pavements, rail permanent way, slopes, car parks, landfill, coastal defences and sustainable urban drainage systems. Our experienced civil engineers are on hand to advise the correct solution to your unique application.
