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.
