Applications & Benefits

Applications: 

As an integral part of every job site, geosynthetics can serve a very wide variety of functions. They are now considered essential as cost-efficient solutions for a variety of needs including separation, filtration, drainage, reinforcement, confinement and erosion protection. The increased need for geosynthetics has been stimulated by increased government regulations to prevent surface erosion, road deterioration, improper drainage and contamination.  

The ADS line of products includes woven and needle-punched nonwoven fabrics, geogrids and erosion control products. Woven and nonwoven geotextiles are typically used for soil stabilization and reinforcement, erosion control, separation, filtration and drainage. ADS geogrids are sheets of extruded polypropylene that reinforce weak soils under roadways and embankments and are often used in conjunction with a woven or non-woven fabric. Erosion products, such as silt fences and erosion control blankets, control runoff and provide erosion protection on job sites, in channels, and on slopes.
