Geotextiles

Environmentally Friendly

Drivetex – A heavy duty non-woven geotextile fabric providing the best performance in ground stabilisation, filtration and drainage.

Why we recommend it

Drivetex is a professional driveway fabric, to be used beneath MOT Type 3 aggregate or hardcore in a sub-base layer. It prevents sinking and rutting caused by settlement of aggregate into the soil beneath (sub-grade) – a process known as pumping. This high quality product does not loose strength when used below ground, making it the No1 choice for driveways, roads and other areas subjected to vehicular traffic. Drivetex can also be used for the construction of land drains (French drains), for wrapping soakaway crates and most importantly as a SUDS layer in a permeable *pavement construction.
