General Information

The use of geotextiles fabricated into large bags or tubes for the containment of materials (generally sand) to form engineering structures in marine environments was largely developed in the USA in the late 1980’s. The technology has developed such that these systems are a well accepted engineering methodology that provides a unique and cost effective solution to engineering problems in a marine environment.

In more recent times this technology has been extended with the use of large geotextile bags that may be manufactured with volumes up to 5m3.

By using specialist filling and placing equipment these bags may be stacked to build an efficient structure for the protection of coastal and esturarine environments against erosion.

Product Information

Global Synthetics has the ability to provide unique solutions for coastal protection using geotextile tubes, geotextile bags or geotextile containers. The product is fabricated to suit the specific coastal problem. Fabric selection is based upon project specific requirements.

The use of such products may allow the use of sand materials as the filling media such that the structure is dimensionally stable over long periods of time.

Sizes Available:
1. 0.75m3
2. 1.00m3
3. 2.50m3

You should contact your local Global Synthetics representative for specific assistance for your project.
