A Full Spectrum of Geosynthetic Products

GEOfabrics has been supplying the rail industry with trackrehabilitating geotextiles and geocomposites for over 20 years. Working directly with rail authorities, contractors and designers, alongside its comprehensive R&D programme, it has developed leading geosynthetics to provide significant cost benefits to the rail industry.

Geosynthetics comprise an assortment of synthetic polymer materials, specifically fabricated to be used in geotechnical, geo-environmental, hydraulic and transportation engineering applications. And they’ve been employed to perform a number of functions in track construction and rehabilitation for almost half a century.

When properly specified by experts, their use has been proven to significantly enhance the performance of the trackbed in a number of ways – reducing maintenance costs and increasing the lifetime of the design. For this reason, it’s vital that rail operators work with a geosynthetics expert to get the optimum result and a solution which is specific to the geotechnical issue at hand.
