Do your geotextiles have the needle free guarantee?

Non-woven geotextiles can be produced by the needle punching process, but due to abrasion and wear during manufacturing, needles can break off into the product causing serious issues for you and your project.

If undetected before leaving the supplier, these needles can puncture the surrounding geosynthetics or geomembranes they’re installed against, counteracting their entire purpose for your project.

It’s critical for geotextiles like bidim to be needle free, as they act as a layer of protection against rocks and other issues that can disrupt your installation.

At Geofabrics, we produce quality, certified, needle free Australian made geotextiles. Our Albury manufacturing plant uses a metal detector to identify and remove any metal fragments (including broken needles) during the manufacturing process, ensuring that your projects aren’t compromised.

Geofabrics products are tested more extensively than any other competitor and offer you a 100% guarantee of needle free geotextiles.
