The Solution for Shoreline Protection and Marine Structure Construction
Silt Tube geocontainment technology is used as an integral component in the design and construction of a variety of marine and hydraulic engineering structures such as breakwaters, levies, and marine spoil-containment structures. Once in place, our technology provides years of continued performance.
For more than 40 years, Silt Tube technology has protected shorelines, rebuilt beaches, and reclaimed land from the sea. Silt Tube containment technology is a proven, cost-effective method for a variety of shoreline protection and marine construction projects. Silt Tube technology has been used to produce sand dune cores; wetlands and other habitats; jetties, dikes, and groynes; and underwater structures — and to even raise brand new islands from under water.
Silt Tube technology is cost-effective, durable, easy to install, and highly flexible. It’s been proven in applications around the world and is installed in more than 50 countries. For shoreline protection, native materials can be used and the Silt Tube units are placed such that your shoreline is not washed away. Silt Tube units are very unobtrusive and will reduce large waves to prevent the loss of beach areas when used in applications such as jetties or breakwaters. Silt Tube containers can be stacked several high to produce the elevation necessary for backfilling and land creation. The containers can then be covered with rip rap, sand, or other soil to hide them and produce natural looking shorelines.
