GEOTEXTILE GEOFORCE HT

GEOFORCE HT is a heat-welded woven geotextile manufactured from 100% calendered polypropylene. Due to the high mechanical properties of the polypropylene geotextile, GEOFORCE HT geotextile is ideal for the application in separation of soils, drainage filters, protection of geomembranes, waterproofing and energy absorption.

GEOFORCE HT geotextile is easy to handle and has the following advantages:

  • It has higher mechanical and tensile strength than GEOFORCE
  • Excellent mechanical, chemical and biological resistance.
  • Less permeability and retention of particles than GEOFORCE.
  • Cost reduction.

APPLICATIONS

GEOFORCE HT is a geotextile with many applications in different fields:

ROADS AND PAVEMENTS

ROADS AND PARKINGS: Separate the different layers of materials stabilizing the roads. They are designed to withstand static and dynamic stresses.

RESURFACE: By saturating the geotextile with bitumen, it prevents the penetration of surface water. Prevents and reduces cracks.

PAVED STORAGE AREAS: Saturated with bitumen, the GEOFORCE HT absorbs the stresses of the cracks and promotes the bonding with the old pavement layer.

TEMPORARY ROADS: GEOFORCE HT placed under the upper gravel layer increases road capacity to withstand stress due to heavy traffic.

SHOULDER OF ROADS: GEOFORCE HT geotextile ensures the separation and stability between the subsoil and the construction materials that are added to the road.

AIRPORTS: In constructions that require heavy loads, GEOFORCE HT geotextiles stabilize the land, thus allowing heavy traffic.

RAILWAYS: The high speed and the heavy weight of the trains require stabilization and reinforcement of the railway bed.

 

CONSTRUCTION

LANDFILL SITES: GEOFORCE HT is used as a protective layer for waterproofing membranes, and to ensure the efficiency of the drainage system, avoiding the clogging of the different layers.

FOUNDATIONS: When placed on foundations and concrete slabs, it substitutes the blinding layer.

CONCRETE FLOORS: Below concrete floors, the permeable GEOFORCE HT geotextile protects the drainage layer form concrete and subsoil contamination.

ROOFS: GEOFORCE HT geotextiles are used as a protective layer for the waterproofing drainage membranes used in roofs.

LANDSCAPED ROOFS: Geotextiles are used as a protective layer for the waterproofing drainage membranes used in roofs.

 

SUBSOIL

CONSTRUCTION OF TUNNELS AND UNDERGROUND STRUCTURES: GEOFORCE HT geotextile protects the waterproof sheet and prevents clogging of the drainage layer.

STORAGE AREAS: GEOFORCE HT geotextiles prevent the loss of fines throughout the course of the draining bed and the clogging of the drainage layer.

 

DRAINAGE

PIPES AND TRENCHES: The placement of GEOFORCE HT geotextile at the bottom of the trench will considerably increase the capacity of the soil towards the drainage ditch.

DRAINAGE PIPES: As GEOFORCE HT is a permeable geotextile, it can be placed by embracing the drainage pipe, ensuring the protection of it and preventing its blockage.

DRAINING BEDS: GEOFORCE HT geotextile protects the drainage system, thus preventing the mixing of fines.

SURFACE DRAINAGE: GEOFORCE HT geotextile keeps the fines of the different drainage layer separate, ensuring the system efficiency and avoiding the clogging of the different drainage layers.

BUILDING DRAINAGE: In the building and lining, the GEOFORCE HT geotextile ensures proper drainage, thus preventing damage from dampness.

SPORTS SURFACES: Grass fields, artificial grass, sand or gravel are stabilized with the GEOFORCE HT geotextile due to the excellent drainage that offers to any type of surface.

 

HYDRAULIC WORKS

COASTAL PROTECTION: GEOFORCE HT geotextile protects the coastline. Its flexibility and permeability ensure its ability to withstand the impact of waves and currents, thus preventing erosion and loss of fines.

DAMS: Artificial dams and embankments must be reinforced with resistant materials in order to withstand the forces of nature. GEOFORCE HT geotextile stabilizes and prevents the dragging of fines.

PORT CONSTRUCTION: GEOFORCE HT geotextile placed behind the reinforcement protects the drainage layer, keeping it clean and relieving pressure. When placed in front of the protective wall, the geotextile prevents the dragging of the seabed.

RIVERS AND CANALS: GEOFORCE HT geotextile protects the shores of rivers and canals in an effective and environmentally friendly way.

ARTIFICIAL LAKES: GEOFORCE HT geotextile protects the waterproof sheet from being damaged during the laying process.

RESERVOIRS: GEOFORCE HT geotextile protects the waterproof sheet from being damaged during the laying process.

FUNCTIONS

GEOFORCE HT geotextile applications within the following functions:

  • Filtration: retains certain particles subject to hydrodynamic forces while allowing fluids to pass through.
  • Separation: prevents contact between two materials with different properties, avoiding mixing and possible contamination.
  • Reinforcement: allows reinforcement and stabilization in the construction of parkings, shoulders of roads, airports and railways, and in the resurfacing of roads.
  • Drainage: it carries out the function of passage of a fluid from one place to another in liquid or gaseous form, performing the function of elimination by evacuation in the thickness of the geotextile. GEOFORCE HT geotextile is applied on drainage pipes, sports surfaces and in buildings. The high permeability of the technical fabric allows high water removal and soil consolidation. In addition, nonwoven geotextile can act against the increase of weeds by allowing the water and nutrients to pass through the plants that are convenient for us.
  • Protection: The GEOFORCE HT geotextile acts protecting the waterproof geomembranes, preventing mechanical damage caused by punching or abrasion.
