GEOTEX® DND Orange 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

- Resistant to biological and chemical environments normally found in soils, preventing breakdown of material over time
