SKAPS Industries’ woven geotextiles are individual threads (monofilaments, multi-filaments, and fibrillated yarns) or slit films and tapes that are actually woven in 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’ woven geotextiles typically hold a higher strength-to-weight ratio in comparison with nonwoven needle-punched geotextiles. In comparison to nonwoven geotextiles, woven fabrics 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.
