Geosynthetic materials for railway projects

Polyfabrics Australasia supplies geogrids, and woven and non-woven geotextiles to reinforce, filter and separate sub-base layers under railway tracks.

Other products include geocells to strengthen sub-bases and embankments, geonet composites to control drainage in ballast and side catchment areas, geosynthetic clay liners (GCL) for water catchment areas, and Hydrotex® technology to replace filters.

Solutions for track-bed constructions

Our products work to offer elements of the six fundamental functions that are used throughout track-bed construction, including:

  • Separation to maintain the integrity of adjacent soil types
  • Drainage to facilitate water flow
  • Filtration to prevent soil particle leaching
  • Reinforcement to enhance the strength of sub-bases
  • Barrier for containing liquids
  • Protection for structures and barriers

The evolution of rail applications has led to more cost-effective sub grade materials that can reduce maintenance and increase profits. Polyfabrics Australasia assists clients with strategic value engineering and supplies improved solutions at a reduced cost.
