Erosion protection with TenCate Geobags

TenCate Geotube® Geobags are versatile and highly robust engineered containers used to protect coastal and inland waterways from erosion. The material of the geobag containers can consist of either an engineered woven or a composite fabric depending on the application requirements and are combined with high capacity seams to produce pillow or box shaped containers.

The geobags units typically range in volume from 0.5m³ to 8m³. These geobag containers are hydraulically filled with sand either near-site or on-site prior to placement and are used to construct revetments and other hydraulic structures such as filling in scour holes, closing breached dykes, and as basic armor units for erosion protection works. Often for canal and riverbank applications, the three-dimensional fabrics of composite geobag containers enhance soil entrapment and encourage vegetation growth. TenCate's geobag containers are available in beige and green to blend in to its natural surroundings.
