When You Want Cost-Effective Separation, Filtration, And Drainage
Protect your geomembrane materials from damage while staying compliant with your industry regulations. These nonwoven geotextiles are an industry favorite due to their cost-effective properties and consistent filtration.
Manufactured from high-quality polypropylene fibers, Layfield’s nonwoven geotextiles achieve their unique properties through the interlocking fibers that are formed during the needle-punching process. They are commonly used to provide filtration; separation; protection; and drainage.
What Makes Layfield Nonwoven Geotextiles Your Best Choice?
Excellent Water Flow Rates
The interlocking fibers provide specific filtration opening sizes to retain fine soil particles while allowing water to pass through the fabric.
Good Cushioning Properties
Nonwovens in heavier weights and thicknesses are often used to protect a geomembrane from damage from both the subgrade and backfill soil.
Meet Most Ministry Requirements
Our nonwovens are approved and listed on most municipal designated sources lists, making it easy to manage any approval requirements.
- Provides lightweight, low-cost protection for geomembranes
- Offers consistent filtration and water flow properties
- Prevents the loss of soil fines when wrapped around drains
- Found on most government-approved sources lists
A nonwoven geotextile filters water through while retaining smaller soil particles, making them an excellent solution to build roads, even with sub-optimal conditions such as wet or soft subgrade.
Protection – Geomembranes & Liners
Nonwoven geotextiles can protect your geomembranes from damage during construction and throughout operational use. With their excellent mechanical properties, the life expectancy of your geomembrane system can be significantly improved.
Their high flow rates, puncture resistance, and strength make nonwoven geotextiles perfect for use in conjunction with other solutions like riprap or hard armor.
Nonwoven needle-punched geotextiles offer excellent water flow properties for drainage and other applications.
