Drivetex Ground Stabilisation / Drainage Membrane
Now available for fast free local delivery or collection Drivetex. A robust, non-woven geotextile fabric providing the best performance in ground stabilisation, filtration and drainage. Drivetex is a professional driveway fabric, to be used beneath type 1 aggregate/hardcore in subbase layers. This prevents sinking and rutting caused by settlement of aggregates into the soil beneath (sub-grade)– a process known as ‘pumping’. This high quality product does not lose strength when used below ground, making it the ‘number 1’ choice for driveways, roads and other areas subject to vehicular traffic. Drivetex has excellent drainage properties and is therefore widely used for the construction of land (French) drains, for wrapping soakaway crates and for use beneath permeable paving and other SuDS compliant installations.
