Runway Material Information
We have had several inquiries about the material used for our runway. Hopefully this page will answer many of those questions. I will update this page with more detailed information after whe have a little more experience with the material.
The product we used was Propex GeoTex 315ST. http://www.geotextile.com/product.aspx?name=Woven+Geotextiles
It is available in this area from Carter Waters LLC. We paid $450 per roll delivered to Great Bend.

Contech C-300 is the same product marketed under a different brand. The pricing was virtually the same for the two products. I went with Carter Waters because they were very helpful and sent us samples. I would suggest checking prices at both places. Contech was initially a little cheaper, but Carter Waters matched their price without hesitation.

We got the staples from Geo-Synthetic, LLC. We planned for a 12” staple every 4’ with three 6” staples between each, ending up with a staple every foot around the perimeter. On the center seams, we put a 12” every 6’ and a 6” between each. (Note, our seams were sewn, or you would need staples every foot on the overlaps, also. You can find the exact staples at the link below.
