Advanced Building Materials Inc. maintains one of the largest inventories of medium- and high-strength woven and non-woven geotextile fabrics in South-Western Ontario. Geotextiles can be used for road construction, parking lots, job site access, shoreline protection and drainage ditches. Our materials come in various sizes to suit your job requirements and different grades to meet your construction demands.
Geoweb is a light-weight, flexible, polyethylene confinement system consisting of three-dimensional cells in a honeycomb-like structure. Geoweb creates an economical erosion barrier or structural foundation.
It can be very successfully utilized in ground stabilization for temporary/ permanent roads, as Geoweb is effective in distributing applied loads over a large surface. It significantly reduces pressure applied to the subgrade by loads exerted on the top surface of the cells. Because the cell walls resist lateral movement, Geoweb can transform poor quality infills into stable load bearing surfaces.
It is also excellent when used in erosion control for slopes. Using vegetated soils, Geoweb improves the performance of slopes by protecting and reinforcing the root zones and directing hydraulic flows over the top of the cells. For slopes with granular fill, Geoweb improves the performance by controlling the migration of fills. This is accomplished by dissipating hydraulic energy in and underneath the cells and by confining the fill material within the cells.
A geogrid is geosynthetic material used to reinforce soils and similar materials. Geogrids are commonly used to reinforce retaining walls, as well as subbases or subsoils below roads or structures. Soils pull apart under tension; compared to soil, geogrids are strong in tension.
If you require design work for your construction project, feel free to call and we will make sure that your road design meets the requirements of your project.
Silt Socks are an environmentally-friendly product used for erosion control, sediment control, perimeter control, slope interruption and waterway protection. They’re made of long, durable woven fabric tubes filled with recycled wood chips, and are a superior alternative to fencing-type products. Once staked in place they serve as filters for runoff water, and provide a cost effective solution for diverting clean water and trapping sediment.
