Textile Mesh Structure, In Particular, a Geotextile

March 16, 2004

A patent has been issued for a textile mesh structure comprising linearly extending warp threads. There are linearly extending weft threads positioned substantially at a right angle to the warp threads. Fixing threads are arranged to join the warp and weft threads, and are applied by warp knitting them to the form thread meshes. These thread meshes are arranged to extend around the warp threads over the entire length of the warp and weft threads in regions in which the warp threads and weft threads intersect. The warp and weft treads are arranged one of individually or in groups at relatively large spacings in order to form internal widths. When the warp threads and weft threads intersect, lengths of the thread meshes are shorter than in regions between intersect regions.
