This fabric is usually a black colour. It can also be found in orange as a warning layer for contaminated soils.

This strong woven geotextile is a great way to provide a warning and a separation layer between potentially hazardous ground and layers on top. The woven geotextile is a sheet created with woven plastic stands to provide a strong and robust layer within the soil.
