The 2016 Manufacturers’ Monthly Endeavour Awards honored Geofabrics Australasia as Manufacturer of the Year during a May 12 ceremony in Sydney. Geofabrics was recognized for its production of Trinet® and Flownet® geonet geocomposite drainage systems.

The manufacturing award was given in the Industrial Product category.

Flownet® is a lightweight drainage net used for landfill caps, tunnels, retaining wall, and bridge abutment applications. As a cost-saving alternative to granular drainage layers, it protects structures against high water pressure. It is engineered for particularly strong performance in vertical and steep slope drainage systems.
