Geotextile fabrics are commonly specified for use in a wide variety of Civil or Environmental applications for private or public projects. Products selected for these applications often include woven slit film, high performance woven, monofilament filtration fabrics, or needle punched nonwoven fabrics. Applications and specifications, determine the appropriate product and function. Timing can be a
Woven geotextile fabrics are manufactured through traditional weaving of individual threads into sizeable sheets. Individual threads are made out of different kinds of materials, ranging from fibrillated yarns to monofilaments, slit films, etc. They are woven together on a specialized loom to create a large, uniform piece or sheet of geotextile material. Because of
With infrastructure maintenance funds taking severe cuts and the continuously rising costs of building materials and labor, contractors are under immense pressure to provide and maintain enhanced turnaround and performance—all while working with tighter budgets. Fortunately, industry practices and technologies are constantly evolving, providing companies with more efficient, innovative, and cost-friendly opportunities to build. Population
Erosion comes in different forms, ranging from a slight runoff capable of washing away surface dirt, to more serious landslides that are capable of harming property or cause loss of life. Although some types of erosion are natural, others are caused by human error. Job sites are also prone to erosion-related issues, especially with the
Silt fences are temporary barriers intended for retaining sediment and controlling erosion on construction sites. These fences are made out of synthetic filtration fabric, usually geo-textile filter fabric, woven together to create sheets of material that offer incredible strength and a good level of permeability. This enables water to flow through while preventing sediment from
WINFAB’s Quality Control Laboratory was audited by George Koerner with the Geosyntietic Institute and has been accredited by the Geosynthetic Accreditation Institute’s Laboratory Accreditation Program (GAI-LAP).
