Woven geotextiles are geosynthetic materials often used to reinforce and separate low-bearing soils. By design, they are very strong and porous, which makes them a good application for road construction and fine granular soil reinforcement. They are formed by weaving several threads perpendicular to each other to form a large sheet. Depending on the weaving process and the fibre structure, woven geotextiles are divided into multifilament fabrics (PET) and woven geotextile PP tapes.
Woven geotextiles can be applied to steep slopes and retaining walls, at a cost significantly lower than a traditional concrete gravity wall. While enhancing roads, geotextiles increase their lifespan and durability and reduce the maintenance costs.
They are created by weaving threads on a special loom to form a large sheet of geotextile material. This process makes them very strong and perfect for heavy applications such as road construction. Their tensile strength measures up to 1600 kN/m.
They can be used for soil reinforcement and soil separation as well as hydraulic applications like silt turbidity curtains.
Geotextiles are light, thin and consume less resources for production than gravel. They extract no dangerous substances to the surrounding environment, so they are toxin-free and eco-friendly. They reduce the CO2-footprint for a structure over the life span of the road or platform.
Woven geotextiles are corrosion-resistant and long-lasting. When designed, installed and maintained correctly, their service life reaches 100 years in natural soils without requiring any special maintenance.

As opposed to CON/SPAN, they are made of steel and not concrete so they are more ecological. Also, they are not applicable for buried solutions. Comparing to other steel structures (UltraCor, SuperCor), they are faster and easier to assemble as the parts are completely prefabricated. However, they cannot be as wide as other structures, with a maximum width of roughly 11 m.
