GeoNet and GeoComposite are manufactured at SKAPS plant in Commerce, GA
SKAPS TRANSNET is a biaxial geonet manufactured from high density polyethylene for the purpose of environmental drainage control.
SKAPS produces TRANSNET in thickness ranging from 160 to 270 mils. The most common application is for landfill leachate collection. TRANSNET is specially formulated to allow for use in high load applications such as landfill cells where compression resistance is critical. The biaxial grid design, which is the proven standard in today's geonets, provides high flow characteristics in both machine and cross directions. The ability to allow complete flow in all directions is critical due to irregular surfaces caused by settlement and construction. TRANSNET may also be incorporated with a geotextile based on the customer specifications.
SKAPS TRANSNET is available as a geocomposite, that is TRANSNET geonet bonded with a non-woven geotextile. The primary purpose of this material is as a filter media for leachate solutions. The fabric acts as the filter for the migrating fluid and only allows liquids to enter and be carried by the geonet.
SKAPS selects only high quality polypropylene geotextiles to be used in the manufacturing of our geocomposites. These geotextiles are available in various weights and can be laminated in either a single or double-sided configuration. The final product is based upon what you the customer require in your engineered applications.
SKAPS Nonwoven division produces Civil and Environmental nonwoven geotextile that is needle-punched and made of 100% polypropylene staple fibers, which are formed into a random network for dimensional stability. All SKAPS geotextile products resist ultraviolet deterioration, rotting, biological degradation, naturally encountered basics and acids. Polypropylene is stable within a pH range of 2 to 13.
SKAPS geotextile fabrics are woven polypropylene materials offering optimum performance when used in stabilization applications. Produced from first quality raw materials, they provide the perfect balance of strength and separation in styles capable of functioning exceptionally well in a wide range of performance requirements.
