Re: Runway material

Agreed Kargon [Nilex 2006 is a fine Ford].

I got a quote from Nilex Toronto's Joseph Solomons - very nice chap. Excerpt follows;

Below is our quote as requested, unfortunately custom roll sizes is not feasible unless we are able to get to our suppliers minimum order quantity of around 80,000m2 (860,000sf) and approx. 4 week lead-time.

I am quoting the standard stock rolls sizes for your consideration and hope this will meet your requirements.


We have no life expectancy data to support the use of this product in the applications where it is permanently exposed to UV, normally these products are buried in the ground and we don't need to worry about exposure to UV but we were also approached by the .... club to look into a product with 90% UV resistance as appose to 70% and I have quoted below our alternative to GTF404 which is a fabric that's been used in US successfully for many years.

70% UV resistance fabrics
Nilex 2002 Woven 3.8m (12.5') X 132m (432')
Price: $328.24/roll

Nilex 2004 Woven 3.8m (12.5') X 110m (360')
Price: $305.10/roll

Nilex 2006 Woven 4.6m (15') X 91.4m (300')
Price: $352.48/roll

[quote for GTF404 alternative removed ~800$]

Above roll are stock and can ship immediately


Delivery based 1 full roll of any of the above to Alexandria ON = $120.00

Note: Nilex accepts VISA and MC

Of course quotes change, so don't expect the same as above, it is only for reference.

Re: Runway material

Winnipeg-Headingley Aeromodelers put in a geotextile runway at the beginning of the 2013 season and it has been excellent so far. We went really big, hoping that the local turbine flyers would be interested in joining. Check our field out at
