Frequently Asked Questions

  • Whats the difference between TerraTex HD and TerraTex GS fabrics? 

Hanes TerraTex HD is a stronger (greater tensile pull strength) fabric than the TerraTex GS line. 
TerraTex GS has a grab tensile strength of 200 lbs and the HD is tested for 315 lbs grab strength

  • How much aggregate material needs to be placed on top woven geotextile fabrics after installation?

For residential applications it is generally recommended to place a minimum of 4" depth of gravel or aggregate on top of the fabric. Typically 4-6" of aggregate is ideal.For fabrics used in commercial or road construction 6-8" depth is generally used. 

Consult you project engineer for exact requirements as specifics can vary widely between projects.


TerraTex® woven geotextiles are designed and manufactured for many construction applications. They perform the three primary functions of a geotextile: separation (separating the native subgrade from an aggregate layer); reinforcement (reinforcing an area by distributing weight over a wider area); and filtration (retaining soil while allowing the passage of water). TerraTex® woven geotextiles are composed of polypropylene filaments that are formed into a stable network such that they retain their relative position. A range of geotextiles is offered to meet the requirements of various applications.


The TerraTex Series of woven  geotextiles are ideal for use in:

  • Separation under driveways and streets, parking, storage and staging areas, roadways, airport runways, paving blocks, and access/haul roads
  • Wrapped-face retaining walls  
  • Separation of Aggregates  
  • Foundation stabilization  
  • Daily landfill covers

Geotextile Overview

Geotextile is a synthetic absorbent textile material used in geotechnical engineering and many other projects including road work.

To date, more and more people are turning to geotextile products for their projects from construction sites to railroads. This incredible fabric has turned many sites environmentally friendly and helped clean up what was once a wasteful mess.

Geotextile Applications

Most geotextiles are made from synthetic polymers including the following: polypropylenes, polyesters, polyethylenes, and polyamides.

Geotextiles will not break down during chemical or biological operations making them excellent choices for road construction and maintenance. The composition of the fabric will decide what applications are the best choices.


Non-woven fabric resembles a felt-like material. It's made with the fabrics oriented or randomly patterned on the sheet. Most materials made from non-woven fabric are used for furniture covers and the cloth is used for the interior of vehicles. The fabrics can be manufactured in a number of ways such as bonding fibers together using chemicals for thermal or mechanical procedures. Non-woven fabric can stretch unlike woven and will allow water to flow along the surface of the geotextile.


This type of fabric is composed of strands knitted together to form a flat thin, yet durable material.

Geotextile For Road Construction

In road construction there are four main reasons for using geotextiles -


You can keep layers of different sizes of particles separate from each other by using the right geotextile.


Water will pass down through the material into the subsoil or to the side within the fabric serving as a drain.


The water moves through the soil while the material prevents the movement of particles. With reinforcement, the geotextile will actually strengthen the soil or increase soil support. As an example, when placed on sand it will distribute the load evenly to prevent rutting.


Geotextiles are commonly used for road stabilization through separation and drainage. When the soil beneath the road is always wet, silty, or murky, it does not have the strength to support average traffic loads and has a habit of shifting under these loads. The geotextile material will separate base materials and subgrade and base elements while allowing the water to flow through.

Further Information regarding separation

One of the most important features for choosing a geotextile it must allow water to move through it while keeping the soil or sand separated. It should allow water to pass through at the same rate if not faster than the adjacent soil. It should hold small soil particles without causing plugging or clogging.

When choosing geotextile for separation, consider its strength, the distribution of the subgrade and sub-base as well as how it flows through the fabric. The fabric must have the required properties for separation.

Retaining Walls Using Geotextile

Building a concrete gravity or crib wall is often not practical due to the high cost. Geotextiles are used for a large assortment of reinforcement applications including embankments over soft soil, levees, and retaining walls. Geotextile is a great choice for constructing walls with timber, precast panels, and segmented block facing. On top of that, a geotextile retaining wall can be constructed for less than half the cost of a conventional wall. Woven geotextiles have advantages over traditional methods such as easy installation, construction, and use of backfill material from the site. Polypropylene geotextile will cost approximately half what it would cost for polyester and polyethylene geogrids. Also, it will use half the labor force to install.

Geotextile For Subsurface Drainage

For some time now, geotextiles have been replacing graded soil filters for drainage for practically all structures including groundwater intercept systems, pavements, building foundations, dams, and walls.

In comparison to traditional soil filters, geotextiles have several advantages offering an excellent filter, for lower environmental impact, better construction turnaround, and a lower cost for the material.

Geotextile Erosion Control

This product has taken the place of graded granular filters used under riprap or other materials for retaining walls. The applications include shorelines and bridges, drainage channels, and pier scour protection systems. Wave and water activities can erode subgrade soils from under the riprap without a geotextile filter. Degradation of the subgrade will remove the benefit of the riprap, resulting in extensive repairs and replacements.

Choosing geotextiles for permanent erosion control is somewhat like subsurface drainage. That said, permanent erosion control applications require higher geotextile strength.

Geotextiles For Waste Containment

Environmental cleanup and waste containment requires uncompromising physical properties and continual product quality For environmental applications, geotextile must have these critical properties when exposed to harsh chemical environments.

Fabrics for waste containment must serve a number of applications such as filtering fluid and gas collection systems, protecting geomembrane liners, waste daily covers, and reinforcement. These products are implemented for municipal facilities for waste and hazardous waste landfills, sewer treatment locations, and ponds for waste containment, and many other uses.

Geotextiles For Railroad Stabilization

Maintainance of the tracks is required for good operations. Subgrade pumping into the ballast can lead to uneven track beds causing late arrivals and departures and even some derailments. Geotextiles perform many functions in railroad applications. Non-woven fabrics are great for stabilization for both new and repaired tracks. They will stop the contamination of new ballasts with underlying fine-grained soils and offer a mechanism for lateral water drainage. Using non-woven geotextile beneath track beds will help to ensure that the ballast can withstand the loads it was designed for. Geotextiles are implemented in all track operations including grade crossings, switches, and turnouts. Strength woven geotextile is used for reinforcing feeble subgrade soils and the lack of needed embankment materials.
