*Approximate Weight, Why?
In the world of geotextile fabrics, often times technological advances in fabric production allows for, on occasion, a slightly lighter weight to meet or exceed the standard performance of a weighted fabric. In these cases the actual material weight is not specified on the spec sheet. Regardless of the actual weight of the fabric, when comparing fabrics what really matters is the actual performance of the fabric under testing.

Commercial Grade Riprap Fabric
For customers looking for the best riprap fabric available, we have recommended this fabric to many contractors over the years with zero negative feedback. This fabric is for the customer who wants the best, not the cheapest.
Tip: Look for Detailed Specs
Large online shopping websites are flooded with fabrics claiming to be the "highest quality". Always look for detailed specs with testing results. If you don't see a spec sheet download don't believe the claim.
Why Spend More with Fabric Pros?
You’ve probably seen “high-quality riprap fabric” on various big box retailers websites. Usually priced really cheap. Why spend more with us? Think of the project as a whole. What is the most expensive aspect of your project? Typically it’s the labor, followed by hardscape and various corses of stone or gravel and / or asphalt and concrete. On many projects the fabric cost is less than 1% of the total cost of the project. What is one of the first materials that is installed? Typically any sub grade than the fabric. If you put down the wrong fabric and there is an issue, in many situations the entire project has to be redone costing the owner thousands of dollars and a re-installation of everything above the fabric. Case in Point: buy fabric that has been time tested, widely used by professionals and is ASTM tested. You’ll pay more but at least you’ll know what you are getting. Fabric that is directly imported from overseas and posted to a “large online retailer” with countless “5 star reviews” should be approached with a great deal of caution.
Clear Direction on the Right Fabric to Use
From thousands of customers over 20 years we know what the most appropriate fabric is for the given application and we make it simple. We don’t throw 50 options at you to decipher. We present the most commonly used fabric by the professionals for the application.
Tested, Commercial-Grade Fabrics
Testing data helps you as the customer know what you are buying. More often than not, stores selling economy-grade fabric do not provide specification information with ASTM testing data. This is intentional.
We Ship Fast
When you place your order with us we make every effort to process your order right away. If your order is placed in the morning there is a strong chance that we can get it picked up same day by the shipping company.
We Pick Up Our Phone
Have you ever ordered a product online and for some reason needed to call the company? After spending 20 minutes searching for the phone number you finally call and get an annoying menu and eventually a person who doesn't seem to really care?
Not with Fabric Pros. We hate menus so we don't have one. When you call you get a person who is willing and actually able to help every time.
What Else Makes our Riprap Fabric Different?
Our Riprap Fabric is
Our riprap fabric is composed of 100% polypropylene. No fillers and no economy-grade substitutions. Polypropylene is the ideal material for riprap applications as it is both strong and permeable. When economy materials are used in conjunction with polypropylene, strength and permeability ultimately suffers, leading to possible fabric failure, riprap mixing with the below soil and drainage issues. For permanent, long-term riprap installations look for fabrics that are explicitly labeled as “100% polypropylene”.
Our Riprap Fabric is Needle Punched
in a Random Pattern
High quality riprap geotextile fabrics rely on the process of needle punching fibers in a random pattern to produce the high strength and highly permeable material which is ideal for this particular application. The random nature of the tiny polypropylene strands provide heightened strength and more efficient permeability when compared to non-randomized non-woven fabrics.
How Long Will Shipping Take?
Our fabrics ship from four different distribution warehouses located in the west coast, south, midwest and north east areas of the United States. Most of our fabrics are stocked at all four locations and will ship from the location nearest to you to minimize transit time.
Our "Approximate" Transit Map
If everyone has learned one thing in the last few years it's that delivery dates aren't exact.
Most orders require 1 business day to ship. The shipping map to the right is "approximate" and does not take into account order processing time. (typically one business day or less) Sometimes a fabric will be out of stock at the specific warehouse closest to you and will have to ship from a further warehouse. This can impact the transit time. It is always a good idea to order your fabric a full week before you actually plan in installing. It will most likely show up days sooner but it's always better to be safe than sorry.
