Geosynthetics for Soil Reinforcement
Building roads and embankments on soft soils often requires separation of the fill materials from the soft subsoil. Geotextiles prevent the mixing of fill and subsoil reducing the amount of fill required and extending the expected life of a road. Geotextiles can also provide a tensile element in soil structures which can provide reinforcement. Geotextiles, particularly high strength geotextiles are becoming more popular on road and embankment construction and tailings pond caps. On large projects Layfield can provide design assistance for base reinforcement applications. Please contact your local representative for more details.
