SKAPS woven geotextiles are individual threads (monofilaments, multi-filaments, fibrillated yarns) or slit films and tapes that are actually woven on a loom. Typically, woven geotextile fabrics can be used for stabilization, separation, reinforcement, and erosion control applications. Woven geotextile fabrics strive to provide dimensional stability and deliver superior load distribution.
SKAPS Industries Slit Tape constructed woven geotextiles provide excellent stabilization and separation characteristics ideally for ground reinforcement applications. SKAPS Industries “SW” and “W” Series woven fabrics offer high tensile and puncture strengths.
SKAPS Industries’ woven geotextiles typically hold a higher strength-to-weight ratio in comparison with their non-woven needle-punched geotextiles. In comparison to non-woven geotextiles, woven geotextiles typically maintain slower drainage characteristics due to their smaller pore sizes. Therefore, woven geotextiles are less likely to be applied in engineered areas that require high filtration and drainage characteristics.
