Medium Weight Nonwoven Geotextiles
US Fabrics' medium weight nonwoven geotextiles are made from staple filaments of polypropylene fiber and are needlepunched and heat set.
Medium weight nonwoven geotextiles (6oz. to 8oz.) are most commonly used for erosion control. A nonwoven geotextile allows water to pass through it while keeping existing soils in place.
In addition, nonwoven geotextiles can be used in separation/drainage applications. The NRCS recommends using a nonwoven geotextile and stone (riprap) to protect stream crossings, feeding troughs, watering ramps, feedlots and loafing areas.
Using a 7oz nonwoven geotextile as Cow Carpet® will provide better footing and create a healthier environment for your animals.
US 205NW is useful as a recovery tarp to catch debris and paint chips as a result of cleaning or repairing boats. This versatile fabric catches the debris, but allows water to pass through. Benefits include cleaner pads from which to enter a boat, less debris underfoot and cleaner ladder rungs, reducing pedestrian falls. You will also see a reduction of items such as nails and screws that can puncture car and trailer tires. The result is significantly reduced runoff and suspended solids pollution as well as much cleaner and safer facilities.
