GEOPAT® is a registered brand name, which is also popularly known. GEOPAT® is sometimes called polyflakes or geotextile chips and consists of a geotextile chip with an average size of 2 cm².

This chip is drawn from an unwoven geotextile cloth. GEOPAT® retains 20% moisture, so your equestrain surface stays moisturized longer, which is ideal for a dressage or jumping surface.

Depending on the type of sand and the irrigation, 2 to 3 kg per m² is mixed in the sand.

The application of Geo textile fibers, also called polyflakes, applies to arena surfaces manufactured partially or entirely of fiber chips, and in particular fiber materials: these are synthetic materials whose fibers, threads or filaments are crossed over in the longitudinal and transverse directions (two dimensional). Generally this is referred to as a non-woven cloth.

The fiber materials of the geotextile system serve as a stabilizing surface and are chiefly used in the roads and waterways construction industry. One of the main requirements is that the geotextile system technically qualifies for trouble free use after prolonged contact with water or excrements and that it is preferably made of plastic materials that can also be used in conjunction with foods.

Subject requirement conforming geotextile materials are extremely strong and non-biodegradable. They are manufactured from plastics such as polyester fibers (e.g. polyethylene terephthalate), acryl fibers, polyamide fibers and/or polyalkeen fibers (such as polypropylene or polyethelene). Conforming the requirements, only fibers are used that are made of such plastics that can also be used in the food industry and, consequently, pose no threat to the ground water.


It is necessary that you have a perfect mixture for an ideal structure of your soil. Preferably the blend consists of 2 to 3 kg GEOPAT® per m2 top cover. GEOPAT® is to be spread over the entire arena, either manually or mechanically. Use a rotary how to have the geotextile product mix with the top surface for a prolonged period. This has to be done cm by cm until the required depth is reached. Then the riding track needs to be sufficiently irrigated with water. Using the right mixing ratio, applying the right product and relying on the assistance of the right person will enable you to obtain maximum dependability and safety in placing your riding surface.


GEOPAT® is shipped to you in pressed bales. Pay attention to the quality of the geotextile fibers. Presently, there is an uncontrolled growth of geotextile fibers while not every geotextile fiber is suited for its purpose or the original product. Based on his experience, Ivan Peeters has a great command of expert knowledge and is in a position to help you make your selection. You will receive a product complying with highest quality standards and not simply a white piece of cloth which won't last for much longer than a year.


In many cases people prefer to have their equestrian surface extra strong, this particularly applies to jumping arenas and small paddocks where you have a lot of free jumping action.

In order to provide extra bearing capability and stability to the surface in view of the fact that it has to withstand quite a number of obstacles in a riding course, a certain percentage of fibers has to be added.

These are thin extruded fibers of approx. 3 to 4 cm. They do not serve to keep the moisture but to create an even better blend of the sand and GEOPAT® (looks like thin hair).


In many cases the existing sand is suited to be mixed with geotextile and provides an improvement of the surface. Ivan Peeters will at all times be prepared to check the quality of your sand.

Simple words aren't enough to describe the scope of service made available to you by Ivan Peeters because proof can only be furnished after placement of the arena surface. Hundreds of satisfied customers, the international character of our products as well as the GEOPAT® success story are synonymous with our business card while our know-how and experience are our strength... why not benefit from it?



The chips are white. The material is packed in bales of 150 or 250 kg. Particularly make sure that there are no smooth structures/chips in the bales. Be careful with offers containing light gray, black or brown chips or a mixture of all colors or textiles such as curtain fabrics or wedding dresses.

The colored materials are manufactured at a higher temperature and are therefore harder. Hard materials do not absorb moisture. The chip size is also very important
