Geofabrics Ltd

Overview

GEOfabrics manufacture a diverse portfolio of world class leading geosynthetic solutions for a broad range of civil engineering applications including drainage, protection, separation, filtration, SUDs and invasive plant root barriers. GEOfabrics' HPS geotextiles are manufactured from high tenacity virgin polypropylene to a performance specification rather than weight ensuring they are suitable for the intended application. In addition to the inherent chemical and biological resistance associated with polypropylene, the polymer contains 1% carbon black to protect the long chain molecules from UV degradation. GEOfabrics cuspates are used to provide void space for the passage of either a liquid or a gas. Cups or studs are vacuformed with a variety of heights and spacing to create the necessary void space. Our FC and FCF products include a geotextile(s) to deliver a filtration of fill / sub-grade behind structures, gabion baskets, retaining walls, podium decks and other structures...

Invasive Plant Root Barriers
This CPD gives an insight into geosynthetic root barriers and their role within invasive plant protection. Working with academic partners, detailed analysis of root tip morphology in the presence and absence of Copper ions have been carried out. The results demonstrate that when root tips approach the zone of inhibition, they undergo a progressive collapse. This learning presentation will be of interest to those in design, engineering, procurement and planning and roles where public or private land is at risk from invasive plant growth.

Specifying Geotextiles
Geofabrics deliver a 46 minute presentation which will explain the basic structures of different geotextiles and how changes in such can impact performance properties. From this the methods for testing geotextiles will be explained along with how tests can be interpreted against performance. It will also cover European and UK requires for CE marking and UKCA.

Geotextiles in erosion control applications
Closely linked with climate change and flooding the effects of erosion and land loss regularly feature on our new feeds. Geofabrics deliver a 45 minute insight into geosynthetics used to reduce the impact from erosion. Identifying different types of erosion and their often severe impacts will aid your understanding of this dynamic subject.
