Fiberweb, Inc., the manufacturer of Typar Geotextiles, introduces Typar Matrix 3-D Geotextiles, a new patent pending generation of three-dimensional geotextile products designed to reduce soil erosion and help meet recently introduced Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Construction & Development effluent limit guidelines.
Typar Matrix 3-D Geotextiles is an innovative passive treatment system designed to work with silt fence, straw wattles and other traditional practices to ensure compliance with the new, more stringent, regulation. The regulation is significant as it is the first time the EPA has imposed national monitoring requirements and enforceable numeric limitations on construction and development site stormwater discharges.
Composed of a durable, nonwoven fabric in a honeycomb formation, Typar Matrix 3-D Geotextiles can be filled with sand, earth, rock, mulch or other specified material to produce a stable, self-supported, filtration structure. Water flows through the structure while soil particles are retained, thereby reducing sediment run-off.Available in four sizes, this interlocking cellular confinement system offers durable, UV resistant performance.
“The new stormwater regulations have created unprecedented challenges for managing construction erosion and sediment control.Traditional products are simply overwhelmed by the soil and water movement.” said Arthur Cashin, director of Geotextiles Fiberweb Americas, “TYPAR Matrix 3-D Geotextiles provide a resilient, easy-to-use solution for meeting these new performance standards and compliance regulations.”
