Geogrid Supplier, Triumph Construction Supply Explains: Geogrid vs. Geotextile

Geogrid Supplier

As the Midwest’s premier geogrid supplier, Triumph Construction Supply is committed to customer satisfaction. One of the ways we achieve that satisfaction is by taking steps to make sure our customer base has access to all the information they need about our products. In line with that, in this blog, Triumph wants to explain the differences between geogrid products and geotextile products so that you can find the geogrid supplier that fits your needs.


Geogrids are geosynthetic products that stabilize the soil and reinforce the base in a variety of applications. These products come in three types: uniaxial, biaxial, and triaxial. A geogrid supplier will give you a product made of polymers that you can install in horizontal layers between wall courses to stabilize soil or a wall system’s mass and stability.


Geotextiles are porous fabrics used for erosion and sediment control purposes. Manufacturers create woven geotextiles by weaving fibers together and non-woven geotextiles by bonding fibers together. Geotextiles are used in road and railway embankments, earth dikes, and coastal protection structures. Their design allows them to perform functions like filtration, drainage, separation of soil layers, reinforcement, or stabilization.

The Difference

While both geogrids and geotextiles are used in similar ways, an experienced geogrid supplier should be able to explain the difference. Geotextiles are manufactured for separation, filtration, and drainage purposes. Geogrids provide reinforcement, stabilization, and even filtration when used with properly sized aggregate fills.

Both of these products are typically made from polypropylene or polyester. While these products can be used in similar functions, their purposes are slightly different and it’s important to know what the differences are.
