US Fabrics’ Transnet is a high density polyethylene, biaxial geonet that is produced in thicknesses ranging from 160 to 270 mils.
Geonets offer high compressive strength and are nearly crush-proof. As such, they can be used in the most extreme cases where compression resistance is critical. Transnet’s biaxial design also provides high flow characteristics in both machine and cross directions.
A geocomposite can be created by bonding a nonwoven geotextile to one or both sides of a geonet. The geotextile functions as a filter fabric and retains soil or sand particles and even concrete or grout, while still allowing water to pass into the net.
The most common application for a geonet is landfill leachate collection. A geonet functions very well on steepened slopes and is less expensive and more durable than common sand and gravel systems. They also handle heavy loads and/or heavy vehicular traffic, both horizontally and vertically. Geonets are often incorporated into green roof systems as well.
