Also referred to as Filter fabric, is supplied in rolls 2.6 or 5.3m wide 150m long to prevent soil loss and subsidence behind the gabion.
Protect the integrity of your gabion basket installation with high-quality geotextiles between your gabion structures and the soil. We supply only the highest quality of both woven and non-woven geotextiles for gabion installations and other applications.
These geotextile filter fabric materials prevent the migration of fine soils to the spaces between rock particles. The migration of fine soil into your gabion structure can cause subsidence problems below or behind the gabion structure in time if not applied correctly and will stir up problems – especially in sandy soils. Clay soils do not generally require a geotextile filter fabric as they seldom leach through the basket section. We recommend using a suitable geotextile where the gabion is in contact with earth, this will limit any movement of soils through a gabion structure. In soft soil foundations especially and wherever overlaps or joins are required, we suggest a minimum overlap of 300mm(1 ft).
We supply geotextile to all sites where gabions are used. Depending on the required structure of the gabion, we normally find that about 1-2m² of geotextile per m³ of gabion is required.
The following roll sizes are available:
2.65 m wide x 150m long (397.5m²) or 5.3 x 150 m.
By using our superior grade of geotextiles, you ensure that your gabion installation’s integrity is long-lived.
We can indeed offer specialist experienced installers, or supply an experienced trainer to site.
We offer full technical product knowledge and powerpoint technical training and presentations.
We certainly can visit site, for which we charge a small fee to cover expenses for the site visit, full design (if required) and quotation.
We visit sites we needed, for friendly advice and also offer full site practical training for our products.
We can supply our range of products, including the whole range, with rock supplied separately to site, to make your buying process easier.
We have a few options for getting the knowledge to install our materials, having a Youtube website channel, called Gabionbaskets, where we show installation videos and animations as well as printed A4 sheets showing the correct installation process. For applications we show some on our website, kindly contact us for more information in this regard.
