Geotess® Geotextiles protect the coast line as their flexibility and permeability ensure withstanding to the impact of waves
and currents, preventing erosion and washing out of fines.
RIVER BANKS AND CANALS
Geotess® Geotextiles protect river banks and canals in an effective and environmentally friendly way.
Specifically developed to respond to the most severe application conditions, Geotess® geotextiles are a breakthrough of importance comparing with other traditional construction techniques.
Supported by a constant innovating tradition, Geotess® 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.
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.
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.
Characteristics required for use in erosion control external systems.
Characteristics required for use in the construction of reservoirs and dams.
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.
