DuraForce™ AS Series Nonwoven Geotextile

DuraForce™ AS series geotextiles are manufactured and tested to exact quality standards and rated according to the NZTA F/7 specification for geotextiles.

There is an extensive range of geotextiles available. Due to the process by which they are manufactured, different performance capabilities can be achieved. Frequently there will be a secondary function required of the geotextile as well as the primary function, e.g. drainage as the primary function and separation as the secondary.

Nonwoven needle-punched geotextiles are manufactured from the extrusion of fibres which are laid down on a manufacturing ‘bed’ and then needle punched. This manufacturing process allows for the use of nonwoven geotextiles in applications of drainage, filtration and protection.

 

Benefits & Features:

  • Compliant with NZTA F/7 requirements for strength and filtration
  • Large range of grades to provide the right product for each application
  • Wide range of roll sizes to suit different site requirements and reduce wastage
  • Available in both polypropylene and polyester
  • Large stock holding nationwide to provide fast delivery
