Use & Purposes
Protection layers, typically heavy mass non woven geotextiles, such as Profab® Ultra are used in geosynthetic engineering to reduce the occurrence of local stresses and thus to control potential puncture of the liner by the material installed directly above, typically an aggregate drainage layer.
Consideration needs to be given in the design of a landfill system to:
