- UV Resistant
- Rot Resistant
Woven Geotextile Fabric Benefits
- Resists biological degradation
- Chemically inert
- Increases the life of roads
- Strengthens and supports aggregates
Woven Geotextile Fabric Product Details
Woven geotextile fabric is manufactured by weaving polypropylene. The result is a strong material perfectly suited for handling drainage and erosion control. One Clarion offers three types of woven geotextile fabric. Determining which fabric works best for your application is based upon several factors.
For locations that will be placing a high amount of pressure or stress on the fabric, either through weight on the fabric or weather conditions, a fabric with a high grab tensile strength would be best. For sites that are low lying or are exposed to larger volumes of water, a larger weave patten would work better. See our other Erosion Control Products.

Woven Geotextile Fabric Terms
|Grab Tenstile Strength and Elongation:||Indicators of the breaking load of the fabric|
|Weight:||The number of ounces per square yard|
|Trapezoid Tear Strength and Puncture Resistance:||Methods for measuring the strength of the fabric under tension or use.|
|Permittivity and Permeability:||Means of measuring the rate of water flow through the fabric.|
|A.O.S. ( Apparent Opening Size):||Geotextile fabrics with a higher percentage of open area are less likely to clog. The larger the openings in the weave pattern, the faster the woven geotextile fabric can drain.|
Woven Geotextiles for Road Construction
Woven geotextiles have many common uses, and one of the most popular is ground road stabilization. Most road construction is completed with a sub grade, an aggregate, and then pavement. Woven geotextile provides a layer of support between the sub grade and the aggregate. Water seeping through wont affect the aggregate. It stays in place and prevents pockets of space. This increases the overall strength of the road.
Woven geotextile fabric is also used in erosion control, railroad support, ground stabilization, and rip rap support. Proper installation and application of the woven geotextile fabric will extend the usable life span of roads or other project applications.

Woven Geotextile Fabric Frequently Asked Questions
Woven geotextile fabrics are categorized by their grab tensile strength rating. As an example, woven 150 means woven filter fabric with a grab tensile strength of 150 pounds.
Woven Geotextiles are woven with industrial looms in a consistently applied pattern for strength and drainage.
