Calling a material a geocomposite simply means that it incorporates more than one type of geosynthetic. One of the most common geocomposites is composed of a geonet with nonwoven geotextiles to provide separation and produce a highly effective drainage layer. Other types of geocomposites include composite non-woven geotextile with geogrid to provide separation with confinement, composite woven with nonwoven geotextile, and composite non-woven geotextiles with geomembrane to provide enhanced puncture protection, better impermeability, and greater longevity. Put D2’s experience to work for you and find out how one of these lesser-known products can help produce more effective and efficient designs.
- Geonet and nonwoven geotextiles geocomposites for roadway and embankment drainage layers
- Geomembrane and nonwoven geocomposites for canal or lagoon lining where UV stability, ice, or other stresses may cause longevity issues. These may also be used when compacting angular aggregate above a membrane to prevent punctures
- Geogrid and nonwoven geotextile geocomposites where warranted by the pumping ratio between the in-situ soils and open graded aggregate in paving applications
FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
- Biplanar geonet and nonwoven geotextile geocomposites, such as SKAPS Transnet, allow for water flow in any direction, while triplanar geonet products only allow flow in the machine direction
- Geomembrane and nonwoven geocomposites, such as Huesker’s Canal3, provide greater quality control than using two separate materials
- Geogrid and nonwoven geotextiles, such as Tensar’s TriAx TX-G, save labor by combining two materials on a single roll
