Our Rail GeoTextiles - RK1 & RK9

RK1 is Geofabrics standard separation and filtration geotextile for use with a new sand blanket or where there is an existing good quality formation with a small percentage of coarse particles, i.e. less than 10% by weight <14mm.

Extensive and continual testing and development has demonstrated its world class-leading mechanical strength and hydraulic properties and long service life under dynamic loading conditions. This is as a result of the products:

  • High puncture resistance
  • High elongation to break
  • Superior abrasion resistance
  • Excellent filtration characteristics at all strains
  • UV resistance

Where there is an existing formation with a larger percentage of coarse particles, i.e. greater than 10% by weight >14mm a more robust separator RK9 is normally specified.
