SoilTain tubes for coastal or bank protection are geotextile containment systems of near-elliptical cross-section. When filled with sand, they serve to protect coastlines, river banks etc. against erosion by waves or currents. SoilTain tubes can be incorporated as part of a larger scheme or can act alone as independent structural elements.
While SoilTain tubes are, in most cases, filled hydraulically with a sand/water slurry, they can also be filled by a combined mechanical/hydraulic method.
- Tubes manufactured from special developed technical textiles
- Use of sand-colored tubes can optimize visual integration in a beach environment
- State-of-the-art design technology is used
- Project-specific bespoke tubes are normally produced
