Design and technical Support
With Professional Knowledge & Full Support
Geotas are able to fully support our customers, or consulting engineer firms, with the latest product innovation, technical data, design suggestions, specifications, detail drawings, typical sections, or design software. Geofabrics Australasia also have established a “Centre for Geosynthetic research, Innovation and development” (GRID), where design theories can be physically proof tested to ensure that performance on the construction site will be as expected, or that different products can be tested to select the most appropriate one for the specific application.
Please talk to us about gaining access to these services or technical data sheets, if they are not readily available through this web site. If you don’t need the software, we can arrange for an input data sheet for your project that you can fill with relevant site data, and we can arrange for the design checks to be completed.
Geofabrics Australasia Geosynthetics
As the Australasian leader in geotextiles and geosynthetics, we pride ourselves on our reputation for supplying world-class technical leadership and engineering support through our innovation, research, industry education, design and independent testing services.
Geofabrics can provide our clients with specification reviews, and design suggestions for geosynthetic applications in both construction and maintenance which can help reduce construction timeframes and cost whilst increasing maintenance cycles.
We draw from our experience to tailor design geosynthetic solutions to best meet our client’s performance and economic requirements.
Our comprehensive design advice for projects can include stability analysis, typical sections and standard details. We can also assist with product and installation specifications for tenders.
By employing a national team of engineers, and forming strategic alliances with multi-national consulting engineering practices, our technical support for geosynthetics is unmatched throughout Australasia.
We support our design advice with a suite of design software which assists engineers in developing cost effective solutions to exacting international design standards. We offer our software suite free of charge to our clients and it offers the ability to run a range of design scenarios to cover differing ground and loading conditions to minimise the design risk for a project.
To assist engineers with this process, the Geofabrics team of engineering specialists are available to give technical advice in the use of the software as well as provide in-house or seminar training.
Our team also provides on-site installation training as well as guidelines and diagrams to assist contractors or maintenance crews.
Centre for Geosynthetic Research, Innovation & Development (GRID)
Geofabrics provides world-class technical leadership and engineering support through our innovation, research, industry education, design and independent testing services.
Based in South East Queensland, the laboratory houses a selection of key geosynthetic-specific test equipment. Testing is aimed at solving the real-world problems that designers, contractors and asset owners find on their site – to ensure the right solution is adopted.
- Analysis is performed according to Australian and international test methods
- Comprehensive test reports are generated, including results, photos, graphs, test conditions and details of the apparatus used
- Research is supported by industry leading suppliers in both laboratory and field trials across America, Europe and Asia
Road Safety Barriers
The specifications and standards are constantly evolving in this area, and because we do this on a daily basis, we have a very good understanding of current requirements, and the new products that are being tested and approved for use on Tasmania’s roads.
Geotas are able to assist with design drawings for the various components of safety barrier systems, and design suggestions for new projects.
