Geofabric is a permeable geotextile fabric made from durable polyester fibres. Commonly used for civil engineering applications including roads, embankments, plumbing & landscaping drainage and filtration applications.
Functions of Geofabric
Filtration: To restrict the migration of fine soil particles from a soil mass while remaining permeable to water movement at a rate at least equivalent to the permeability of the retained soil.
Drainage: To allow water to flow through or within the plane of the geotextile, allowing the dissipation of pore water pressure.
Separation: To separate and prevent two distinct soils or different materials from intermixing, thereby maintaining the performance of the individual materials.
Protection: To prevent damage to thin plastic liners used in landfills, by limiting deformation and puncturing potential.
