Geonet Product Range

The Geonet Enviro solutions present a comprehensive range of geoproducts made of natural fibres. We also present a range of geosynthetics made of Synthetic materials as supportive components which are used in combination with natural fibre based products for functional requirements. We manufacture and supply custom made Coir Geotextiles under the name GES Soilsaver.

The above resources are
available on request.

  • GES SOILSAVERS
    • Open Weave Soil saver
    • Loop Weave Soil Saver
    • Non-Woven Erosion Control Blankets
    • Ready to install lawn products
  • GES Cocologs
  • GES Coir Fibre Beds
  • GES Geo Rolls and Vegetation fascines
  • GES Vertical Drains
  • GES Geo Grids
  • GES Geopipes
  • GES Soil Protector (Geomembranes and Landfill management systems)
  • GES Geo Cells
  • GES Coir Beds

The following are the uses of Geo Products:

  • Erosion Control
  • Road Overlays
  • Ground Improvements
  • Slope Stabilization
  • Road Edge Drains
  • Reinforcements
  • Stream / river bank stabilization
  • High altitude
  • Silt fencing

The following are the advantages of Geo Products:

  • Environment Friendly
  • 100% Bio-degradable
  • Water retention
  • Soil Enrichment
  • Cost-effective
  • Effective on all soil surfaces
  • Handles high water velocities

Infact GES Geo products are more cost effective, environment friendly substitutes for some of the geo synthetic products available in the global market place. The natural fibre based GES geo products are made from coir fibres which are specially graded for meeting end performance standards. Coir is 100% organic naturally occurring fibre derived from a renewable resource namely coconut(Cocos mucifera)Husk. Coir fibres resemble the wood fibres in terms of chemical composition and physical properties. Coir fibres are spun into yarn using the principle DREFIII friction spinning. The yarn and the fibre are then made into different types of GES products using varied techniques based on the custom made specifications in line with the designs evolved for solutions to the geotechnical problems identified.

Important Characteristic Properties of Geo products
These are broadly classified as:

Physical properties:

  • Specific gravity
  • Weight
  • Thickness
  • Stiffness
  • Density etc.

Mechanical properties
  • Tenacity
  • Tensile strength
  • Bursting strength
  • Drapability
  • Flexibility
  • Puncture strength
  • Tearing strength

Hydraulic properties:
  • Porosity
  • Permeability
  • Permittivity
  • Transitivity
  • Soil retention
  • Filtration length etc.

Degradation properties
  • Biodegradation
  • Photo degradation
  • Chemical degradation
  • Mechanical degradation

Endurance properties:
  • Crip/elongation under texture
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Clogging length and flow etc.

The geo products should be able to perform the following functions and should have the requisite properties for the same.
  • Separation
  • In this types of geotextile, thickness and permeability are most important characteristic properties.

  • Reinforcement of Weak Soil And Other Materials
  • Strength and durability are the major characteristic properties needed for this type of geotextile.

  • Filtration
  • Porosity and permeability are the major properties of geotextiles which involves in filtration action.

  • Drainage
  • Geotextile collects a liquid and conveys it towards an outlet. All fabrics can provide such a function, but a thin woven fabric obviously has less capacity than a thick needle punched non-woven. However, the capacity of fabrics is limited and geocomposite drains have been developed to provide increased capacity. The flow of water into the drain is controlled by the geotextile which must also perform a filter function to prevent loss of capacity due to soil entry into the drain. This drainage-in-the-plane is termed transmittivity as contrast to permittivity for filtration.

  • Erosion Control
  • In order to control the process of erosion, geotextiles must have following properties:
    • Reduce rain drop impact
    • Intercept rainfall and run off
    • Reduce wind and run off velocities
    • Store water/water holding capacity
    • Infiltrate surface water
    • Better drapibility and compatible to land surface
    • Environmental and Ecological friendly
    • Improve soil fertility
    • Compatible to the application site

Geotextiles In Rural Road Construction: The use of geotextile products in temporary and rural unpaved road construction is one of their most common uses, and work on them is well established. The basis behind their use is that by placing a geotextile between the weak subgrade soil and the aggregate fill the unpaved road construction will be established. The geotextile should have properties:
  • to provide a physical barrier to the intermixing of the aggregate and subgrade soil
  • provide local reinforcement
  • restrains the subgrade sub-base from downward and lateral movement in the rut
  • restrains the subgrade soil from upward and lateral movement between the ruts
  • improve the quality of rural roads
  • increase life span of the road
  • cost reduction of repair
  • stands natural climatics like flood /monsoon destruction
