There is an ever-increasing demand for improved defence infrastructure capabilities across Australia, which is why we are proud to announce our dedicated Defence sector. Geofabrics support the defence industry by supplying geosynthetics for roads and soft ground, asphalt reinforcement, slopes & retaining walls, channel lining and erosion control/protection.

Geosynthetic engineering on defence projects is the use of synthetic materials to achieve more cost-effective, environmentally sound and safer construction outcomes. The fundamental benefit of using geosynthetics on defence sites is to save costs by replacing high volumes of soil material required to build civil engineering infrastructure. These costs can be substantial, especially in remote locations.

Geofabrics have been in the business of geosynthetic engineering for over 40 years - we can recommend the best geosynthetic product to achieve the objectives of your defence project and ensure it’s available when you need it.

Geofabrics CEO & Managing Director, Dennis Grech comments: "As an Australian manufacturer, with capabilities to incorporate Australian sourced recycled materials into our products, we are very pleased to provide an Australian made suite of geosynthetic products that solve complex problems for our defence industry.

Not only do we make a large number of our products right here in Australia, but we also invest heavily in geosynthetics research and innovation at our Queensland based Geosynthetic Research, Innovation and Development laboratory.

Whether it is stabilising soil structures, building retaining walls, containing emerging contaminants or channel lining; Geofabrics has an Australian made solution for our defence partners. We offer short lead times, an Australian distribution network, local R&D and access to over 40 years of Australian innovation that de-risks our customers projects."
