At Coleman Moore, we supply geotextiles with advanced capabilities in soil stabilization and structural reinforcement for civil and environmental applications. The brands we offer boast their own unique strengths and specifications. With our expertise, we will guide you in choosing the proper geotextile product for your application, budget, and long-term goals.
Nonwoven Geotextiles & Their Applications
The primary function your nonwoven geotextile should serve is effective filtration or separation. Finding the right nonwoven geotextile to use for your application will ensure that you’re reinforcing your subgrade for proper filtration and separation of soils from waterflow. Our Geotex® nonwoven geotextiles are made from polypropylene fibers that offer strength and dimensional stability to roadways, railroads, landfills, and more. They are resistant to UV degradations and chemical environments often found in soils. And here’s the kicker: Geotex® nonwoven geotextiles outperform and prove to be more cost-effective than their conventional counterparts, including thicker aggregate, undercutting and removal, chemical stabilization, and graded and granulated filters.
Nonwoven geotextile products we offer at Coleman Moore include:
Subsurface drainage fabrics
Fabrics for erosion control and cushioning
Common applications of nonwoven geotextiles include:
Railroad ballast separation
Separation under pavers
Woven Geotextiles & Their Applications
Made from individual yarns interlaced together, woven geotextiles have a superior capacity for filtration and load distribution applications, allowing water to pass through without the migration of fines up though your road base. This will reduce rutting and extend the life of paved and unpaved roadways that face the potential for heavy traffic or degradation. We partnered with Propex and Huesker, leading manufacturers of geotextiles proven to offer more reliable, predictable, and cost-effective solutions than other conventional methods, like thicker aggregate layers, undercutting and removal, and chemical stabilization.
Common applications of woven geotextiles include:
Stabilizing construction entrances and staging areas
Bridging over soft soils
Separating dissimilar soils
Reinforcing soil structures
Shoreline erosion control
