Our geotextiles for separation & stabilization are made of woven or non-woven polypropylene. Cherokee can manufacture geotextiles in any given width or length.
Our geotextiles are primarily used for separating engineered fill in a road profile from existing subgrade soils.
- Engineered fill pushes down into the existing subgrade soils.
- It can offer strength reinforcement to the road bed.
- Prevents the loss of engineered fill into existing subgrade by repeated wheel load passing over it.
- Prevents cracking, rutting, and potholes on the road surface.
Who Uses Stabilization Fabrics?
- Heavy highway contractors
- Land developers
- Site work contractors
Q: Can you drive directly on your separation fabric?
Q: How do you install in a turn?
A: Fold the fabric on a turn, or cut and overlap the fabric 12 inches.
Q: Should I use a woven or non-woven geotextile?
A: Use non-woven if you have any hydraulic activity. Woven is used for all other applications with lack of water.
Q: Does the geotextile need to be fastened to the ground?
A: It is not required, though in windy conditions it may be necessary to use sod staples or fabric pins to keep it in place.
How to Install Stabilization Fabrics
- Prepare your subgrade.
- Roll out fabric and make sure it’s free of wrinkles or tears.
- Push your engineered fill over it, making sure you have your fabric shingled in the correct direction for how you’re pushing your engineered fill.
