Some of the application areas of GES soil savers in detail

Erosion Control (Mine Dumps)

During the mining processes, large amounts of overburden dumps are formed in and around mining area which causes several ecological problems like, land degradation and modification of topographical features. Accumulation of the overburden dumps of surface mines increases the soil erosion, leading to the formation of depleted top soil, impoverished vegetative cover and subsequent loss of wild life. GES Soil savers can be used either as an overlay on the dumps and they could support vegetation growth on the dumps an thus control the erosion of the dumps.

GES Soil savers give maximum protection to the soil until the grass takes root and provides a permanent coverage. After the stabilization of soil, the nettings decompose gradually and provide nourishment to grass growing on the soil medium. Thus this could help the vegetation growth.

GES Soil savers in retaining Walls

Retaining walls help to maximize their land use. However, building a concrete gravity or crib wall is often impractical because of their high construction cost. GES Soil savers are used for a wide assortment of reinforcement applications, including embankments over soft soils, levees and retaining walls. GES Soil savers are well-suited to construction of walls with timber, precast panel and segmental block facing. In fact a GES Soil savers retaining wall can be built for less than half the cost of a conventional wall. Woven geotextiles offer other significant advantages over conventional methods, such as simplified installation and construction, and the ability to use on-site backfill material.

GES Soil savers subsurface Drainage

GES Soil savers have replaced graded soil filters for drainage of virtually all structures, including groundwater intercept systems, pavements, building foundations, dams and walls. Compared to conventional soil filters, GES Soil savers offer advantages by providing a consistent and continuous filter, reduced excavation, reduced environmental impact, simplified, higher quality construction and a substantial reduction in material costs.

Both woven and non woven GES Soil savers perform well when draining stable, coarse-grained soils. Non wovens are generally used when the retention of fine soil particles is critical to the performance of the drainage system. GES Soil savers strength properties are selected to ensure that the geotextile survives construction and remains intact to perform as a filter.

GES Soil savers railroad Stabilization

Maintaining track bed geometry is critical for efficient railroad operation. Subgrade pumping into the overlying ballast can create an uneven track bed, resulting in delayed arrivals and even derailments.

GES Soil savers perform multiple functions in railroad applications. Non woven fabrics are used to stabilize both new and rehabilitated tracks. They prevent contamination of new ballast with underlying fine-grained soils and provide a mechanism for lateral water drainage. Using non woven GES Soil savers beneath track beds ensures that the ballast can sustain the loads for which it was designed. These GES Soil savers are used in all track applications, including switches, turnouts and grade crossings. High-strength woven geotextiles can also be used to reinforce weak subgrade soils and reduce required embankment fill materials.
