Monofilament Geotextiles

Woven monofilament geotextiles are used with erosion protection armour systems on shorelines to prevent undercutting and washout.


    • Woven from monofilaments of polypropylene
    • Higher strength that most non-woven geotextiles
    • Low elongations under load
    • Can provide reinforcement and filtration at the same time


    • Filtration under shoreline erosion protection armour
    • Used in tidal and wave action applications with reversing flows
    • Filtration applications where larger opening sizes are needed
    • Filtration applications where higher strengths are needed

Product Description

Monofilament Geotextiles are unique geotextiles with high strength and high water flow rates. Monofilament geotextiles are used in situations where high water flow rates and two way flow are a requirement, such as flowing rivers and along shorelines with tidal action. These engineered filtration geotextiles are designed for long-term performance in problematic soil or site conditions to ensure clogging resistance, soil retention in erosion control, and subsurface drainage applications. In many cases a geotextile is used in conjunction with other erosion control systems. Geotextiles are used underneath rip rap or concrete revetment systems along inland waterways and coastal shorelines to protect spillways and embankment dams from overtopping flow, encapsulating cut-off drains and collection systems surrounding landfills, filtration within dams. The geotextile is used adjacent to roadways and other critical structures, encapsulating leachate collection systems under landfills while maintaining long-term clogging resistance, and encapsulating edge drains for critical structures in problematic soils.

"We were offered Geogrids made overseas from a small distributor, but we declined as their testing were suspect and they had no reputation in the market. We will only work with reputable suppliers like Layfield as their Geogrids perform as per recognized specifications." Kenny, Engineering & Scientific Consultant,
