Stabilization Fabric - Woven
Woven geotextile fabric also known as stabilization or driveway underlayment plays an essential role in building a strong separation layer between the subgrade soil and the base layer which cars and trucks are able to drive on.
The following fabrics are classified by grade from Standard to Intermediate then finally to Heavy Duty Grade. Each of these vary in their technical specifications of strength and permeability and subsequently which applications for which they are best suited.
- Woven geotextile provides excellent base support for roadways, parking lots, paver patios, and driveways.
- Reduces the amount of base materials required for the project
- Excellent puncture and tear resistance
- Meets most DOT specs

Standard Grade Woven Stabilization Fabric
Woven stabilization fabrics are ideal for separating the subgrade soil from the aggregate base layer. This is a very popular type of geotextile that has been specified for use by public works and private projects for 20+ years.
It can be commonly be found for use under aggregate driveway or road applications. An economical option perfect for installations where puddling water and fabric permeability is not a concern.
Intermediate Grade Woven Stabilization Fabric
Intermediate grade woven stabilization fabric is a higher tensile strength permeable geotextile. Perfect for projects where it is essential that water is able to flow through the fabric and into the soil below.
Additionally, the intermediate grade fabrics provide a higher tensile strength which can handle heavier loads and are more resistant to deformation and damage from downward pressure than the standard grade stabilization fabrics.
Heavy Duty Grade Woven Stabilization Fabric
Heavy duty grade woven stabilization fabric provides ultra-high tensile strength at low strain rates to increase project performance and life. This grade of fabric is designed for high permeability and flow through rates for the most demanding installations.
Heavy duty grade stabilization fabrics can be used in separation, stabilization, filtration, drainage, and reinforcement applications.
