Hydraulic works

Fibertex Geotextiles are designed for use in all fields of hydraulic works, including coastal protection, harbour construction, artificial lakes, dams, river banks and canals, as well as water reservoirs.

The characteristic opening size of our geotextiles is designed to retain particles, while allowing free movement of water, making it possible to separate different layers during intense hydraulic activity. This cost-efficient system also offers protection of water-proofing membranes and other sealing materials in man-made lakes and water reservoirs.

Applications - Hydraulic works - Costal protection

Coastal protection

Fibertex Geotextiles protect the coast line as their flexibility and permeability ensure withstanding of the impact of waves and currents, preventing erosion and washing out of fines.

Applications - Hydraulic works - Dams


Artificial dams and embankments need to be fortified with strong materials to resist the forces of nature. Fibertex Geotextiles stabilise and prevent washing out of fines.

Applications - Hydraulic works - Harbour constructions

Harbour constructions

Fibertex Geotextiles placed behind the retaining wall keep the drainage layer clean which relieves the hydraulic presssure on the wall. When placed in front of the retaining wall, Fibertex Geotextiles prevent washing out of the sea bed.

Applications - Hydraulic works - River banks and canals

River banks and canals

Fibertex Geotextiles protect river banks and canals in an effective and environmentally friendly way.

Applications - Hydraulic works - Artificial lakes

Artificial lakes

The waterproof membrane is protected against perforation with Fibertex Geotextiles.

Applications - Hydraulic works - Water reservoirs

Water reservoirs

Fibertex Geotextiles protect the waterproof membrane against perforation.
