Geotess® NO RIVAL

Specifically developed to respond to the installation challenges of geotextile, Geotess® products are a breakthrough of importance comparing with other traditional construction techniques.

FILTRATION AND EROSION CONTROL

Supported by a constant innovating tradition, Geotess® geotextile has no equals under the most extreme application conditions. The product can reach 2000 gr per square meter and was mainly studied to control erosion in coastal, river and mountain areas.

PROTECTION

90% of the damages to a geotextiles occur during the installation. Geotess® ensure a total resistance to this primary challenge consequently guaranteeing a long life service. It is made of high quality polypropylene fibres allowing it to comply with the strictest project requirements.

DRAINAGE

Thanks to its weight and thickness, it represents a unique drainage system.
Landfills and tunnels are just two of the most common uses of the product.

Geotess® for landfills and water basins

EN 13257

Characteristics required for use in solid waste disposals

EN 13265

Characteristics required for use in liquid waste containment projects

The bottom barrier appears to be the most sensitive component of the whole system dump "as responsible for the protection of the soil from contaminants that may be more or less dangerous to the environment. Specifically in relation to the degree of hazard of the material and of the surrounding environment, Tessilbrenta proposes Geotess®, the geotextile barrier against puncturing of the waterproofing membrane. With Geotess® you can achieve not just the maximum safety but also the maximum functionality and constructions efficiency. The series Geotess® offers the ultimate guarantee in terms of filtration and protection; allows you to design - in every situation and circumstance - the best system can satisfy the highest design standards in compliance with applicable international and EU norms."

Geotess® for tunnels

EN 13256

Characteristics required for use in the construction of tunnels and underground structures.

Geotess® types are characterized by a random fibres distribution in order to achieve a homogeneous matrix. The fibers used are made of high tenacity PP short fiber. As part of the construction of the tunnel Geotess® is proposed for different applications with a mass per unit area of 500 g / sqm to 800 g / sqm. It is normally used to protect the waterproofing membrane and can act as a filter and drainage system. On request it can be made with fire resistant fibres to match the DIN 4102 Class B2.

Geotess® for Coastal erosion prevention

EN 13253

Characteristics required for use in erosion control external systems.

EN 13254

Characteristics required for use in the construction of reservoirs and dams.

EN 13254

Characteristics required for use in the construction of canals.

The flood events of recent years have demonstrate, how the intervention on rivers with traditional techniques, often not only is ineffective but even counterproductive. It is now recognized that the design of hydraulic defense should be done without altering the nature excessively, in order to obtain the expected results. Geotess® is the answer to the designer to solve some problems of management and water protection in both fluvial and marine, always respecting as much as possible the environmental balance. Geotess® geotextiles reduce the erosion on the banks, stabilize the banks of canals and ditches, create a filter layer and separator in bank protection, build coastal defense in marine works.
