GEOTEX® OR DND

GEOTEX® OR DND is a bright orange, nonwoven geotextile that signals excavators from further digging in areas that may have hazards such as buried contaminants, piping, cables or other dangers. This high-visibility demarcation fabric features durable polypropylene staple fibers that are needle punched to form a dimensionally stable network.

 

Features & Benefits

• Offers high UV rating – 80% for 500 hours – ensuring product will hold-up against UV exposure
• Danger Do Not Dig/Peligro No Excavar is directly printed on the fabric eliminating the cost of additional printed tape that requires installation time and frequently does not stay in place
• Warning message is printed every 24 inches to ensure it appears continuously throughout the ground it is protecting
• GEOTEX OR DND nonwovens feature 50% elongation, compared to only 10-15% elongation provided by wovens, better protecting against tears over differentially supported trench backfills
• GEOTEX OR DND offers superior water flow characteristics compared to wovens and slit tape geotextiles, eliminating water ponding, pressure and backfill sliding concerns
• Provides a cost-effective alternative to removing and transporting contaminants offsite
• Nonwovens can easily be cut in the field to fit smaller spaces, compared to wovens which require factory selvage edges
• Complies with Federal and State laws requiring archeological sites be protected from construction impacts
• Available in multiple product weights, consistent with AASHTO M 288, to meet specification requirements
• Resistant to biological and chemical environments normally found in soils, preventing breakdown of material over time

 

Applications

GEOTEX OR DND is a demarcation fabric for applications where digging and excavating is restricted, including: 
• Superfund sites and brownfield projects
• Areas where underground tanks, pipes, cables and electrical utilities need to be protected
• Remediation zones
• Archaeological and sensitive excavation sites
