Coastal protection

Protecting coastlines against erosion

Use heavy non-woven and woven Enka-Tex fabrics as filter layers, offering proven performance in preventing instability of rock revetments.

Waves and wind generated in marine conditions have a severe eroding effect on coastlines. Rock revetment is the traditional way of protecting coastlines, but it requires a lot of stone material, and constant wave attack and high velocity currents may result in their instability or collapse.

You can replace up to 1m of this granular filter with Geotextiles, making it a very economical and ecological alternative.
