TenCate™ Geotube® containers are constructed from a specially designed textile material that is durable and stands the test of time. Filled with Sand, Geotube® units can be used to create land barriers to prevent ocean surf from reaching shorelines, or buried at the coast to break and minimize storm surges.

Geotube® containers have been installed in numerous coastal projects in New York & New Jersey.  Geotube® Protection Technology is credited with performing as designed and protecting portions of Ocean City, NJ that would have otherwise significantly impacted by Hurricane Sandy.  Additional areas protected by Geotube® containers are in use in artificial shorelines, barrier islands and beach structures.  These all provided significant protection during Hurricane Sandy.

Environmentally Friendly

TenCate™ Geotube® containers are a low risk way to preserve the coastline in many areas and mitigate future storm damage. Geotube® containers are easily hidden from view and are typically integrated into the natural landscape. Geotube® units do not impact the existing environment and they can be removed or changed without leaving a trace.

Cost Effective

Geotube® protection technology costs are minimal compared to the costs of damage repair and clean up caused by storm surges and flooding.  TenCate™ works to supply and support local contractors who set up, install, and maintain these solutions and to provide any needed repairs and maintenance.
