For the more technical, our geotextile fabric is made of 5.9oz polypropylene (PET) fabric that is needle-punched and 1.6mm thick. It is extremely strong, with a tensile strength of 2246lbs, UV resistant, puncture strength of 404 lbs and has a water flow rate of 62 gallons/min per square foot.
Once you have prepped the location where you will be utilizing the Geotextile Fabric, the installation process is quick and easy.
If you are doing a larger area such as a parking pad or arena make sure you roll the fabric over the entire area where the panels will be positioned. Overlap all edges around the BaseCore™️ and each seam between the fabric pieces by approximately 8-12”.
