Profab® Geotextile Indicator Marker Layer – For delineation of potentially hazardous material layers
Use & Purposes
ProFab® AS140/Orange nonwoven geotextiles are comprised of fibres, needled together into a stable matrix, that provides excellent physical and hydraulic properties.
The product is produced in a high visibility orange at the time of manufacture. ProFab® AS140/Orange is designed to delineate potential areas of hazard when excavating potentially contaminated ground or in the positive identification of buried services. The AS140/Orange product is laid at time of construction over the top of identified hazards.
Generally backfilling operations proceed to cover the potential hazard. This marker layer of readily identified geotextile allows later construction activities to cease activities once this layer is exposed and assess options to proceed in a safe manner. Construction drawings should note the depth and extent of such geotextile marker layers
for later use by service and construction operators.
ProFab® AS140/Orange provides a highly visual indicator layer that identifies buried hazards.
