INTRODUCTION

Nilex Woven and High Strength Woven Geotextiles are often used for separation and stabilization in the construction of roads. The woven geotextile’s separation action prevents the mixing of dissimilar soils allowing each soil layer in the road structure to function as intended. The high tensile strength specifically associated with the high strength geotextiles provides the aforementioned function together with enhancing the low elongation properties over the standard woven geotextiles. This is done by imparting stability through the tension membrane effect into the road section reducing rutting and extending roadway life.

Nilex Woven and High Strength Woven Geotextiles are woven from durable, high-modulus polypropylene yarns into competent, robust, dimensionally stable geotextiles. These geotextiles are available in varying tensile strengths and hydraulic properties to suit particular project demands (i.e. standard woven geotextiles may be suitable after due consideration).

Both Woven and High Strength Woven Geotextiles can also be used in filtering and reinforcement applications after due consideration.

FRITZ SICK POOL PARKING LOT REHABILITATION

Improper grading in the parking lot of the Fritz Sick Swimming Pool in Lethbridge, Alberta, led to stormwater flooding in the building and breakdown of the lot’s asphalt and subgrade. The consultant and contractor were open to an approach Nilex proposed, based on a complete solution of supply…
