SoilTain Tubes are large-format geosynthetic containers with which you can erect continuous barriers with high positional stability on coastal and shore sections. A configuration, as a system, ensures a positionally stable and scour-free protection underneath the tube, even on very soft subsoils and in erosion-prone areas.
The scour protection mat consisting of a ribbon fabric with anchor tubes prevents erosion phenomena and scour below the SoilTain Tubes. The scour protection mat is optimally protected from possible undercutting by integrated anchor hoses and guarantees its positional stability.
The geosynthetic fabric of the SoilTain Tubes, which was specially developed for sustainable coastal protection solutions, is characterised by its high robustness during installation as well as its long-term abrasion resistance. The sand-coloured cover of the tubes can be integrated visually into the landscape and is also quickly colonised underwater by maritime flora and fauna. The use of geotextile coastal protection tubes is completely harmless. This is demonstrated both in practice and by scientific evidence.
Sustainable coastal protection thanks to economic and ecological advantages
High positional stability
Rapid colonisation by maritime flora and fauna
Flexible system configuration enables versatile application possibilities
Saving of cost-intensive material transports by using local use of local materials as fillers
High UV resistance and abrasion resistance
- Fabric or composite geotextile tube cover specially developed and tested for use in modern hydraulic engineering
- Factory-fitted rigid or flexible filler pipe
- Locally available materials can easily be used as fill material
- The tubes can additionally be combined with a scour protection mat as a coastal protection system
- The scour protection mat prevents scouring and undermining of the tube
- SoilTain Tubes
- Protective nonwoven
- Scour protection mat
The pre-assembled tubes can be easily laid out on a surface
By means of a suction dredger or a mud dredger, the tubes can be easily filled with locally available sand
The filling supports are attached at the factory and secured with a closure
