SoilTain® - The sustainable solution for coastal and shore protection
Robust geotextile tubes and bags for sustainable hydraulic structures
Innovative and sustainable coastal protection measures are playing an increasingly important role in modern hydraulic engineering due to climate change. The geosynthetic SoilTain Tubes and Bags allow for a quick and easy, yet safe construction of erosion control structures on land and in water. The project-specific prefabricated container systems can be easily filled with locally available materials such as sand. Filling with locally available materials allows for savings on armourstone. Thus, SoilTain coastal protection solutions are the economical and natural-looking alternative to conventional solutions made of stone and concrete. Because of this and the rapid colonisation with marine flora and fauna, the geotextile containers are a very ecological construction method. The SoilTain products are characterised by their adaptability and can be easily installed with other materials. Depending on the element size and type, filling can be done with the help of a funnel or hydraulically by flushing with a sand-water mixture. The application possibilities of SoilTain solutions are diverse and range from dykes on land to sustainable flood protection and offshore wind turbines in water.
