Rail

Rail products provide the functions of filtration, separation, and in-plane drainage. Each needled (mechanically bonded), nonwoven geotextile is composed of high-quality polypropylene resin and carbon black. All products are warranted by the manufacturer to be needle-free.


Metric Values

All values provided are intended for rapid comparison purposes, only. Please refer to a specific product’s Product Data Sheet (PDS) and the disclaimers therein for a detailed listing of all characteristics, associated definitions and values needed for structure design, specification compliance review and product submittal purposes.
