Needle punched and thermally bonded non-woven geotextile membrane rolls have been designed to offer optimum performance per unit weight giving excellent mechanical robustness and excellent hydraulic properties which make them the ideal choice for separation and filtration. Produced on state of the art equipment, thermally bonded geotextile membranes sets standards in terms of quality and mechanical performance.
Typical applications for thermally bonded non-woven geotextile membranes include:
- As a general purpose separator for use under site access roads and areas of hard standing
- As a separation and strengthening layer under new roadways, car parks, industrial units etc.
- As a filter surround in the construction of a french drain or granular drainage blanket
- For separation to prevent the intermixing of dissimilar soil layers
- For filtration to allow the passage of fluids whilst preventing the uncontrolled passage of soil
What are non-woven membranes?
A non-woven membrane is a type of geotextile membrane.
Geotextile membranes are large pieces of fabric that are laid in the ground which act as a protective layer. They are commonly used in engineering and drainage projects, but are suitable for large numbers of applications.
A non-woven membrane is a fabric ideal for wrapping module soakaway crates or lining land drains. Alternatively, they can be used for ground stabilisation, landscape and building work.
The modern membranes goes further than filtering fine sediment. It can spot and filter pollutants in fluids and stop them contaminating underlying layers and keeping these areas clean.
Where can geotextile membrane be used?
There are large numbers of membrane application, including:
- In road and pavement construction
- Gravel-filled plastic paving grids
- Providing drainage for horse arenas
- Ground reinforcement
- Coastal erosion protection
- Wrapping soakaway crates
- Engineering applications (e.g. railways)
- Permeable paving surfaces
- Separating stone layers in car parks
- Gravel driveways
