TenCate Geotube® Geocontainment Units

TenCate Geotube® Geocontainment units are fabricated using specially engineered woven and composite fabric skins in order to meet varying tensile strength, durability and environmental requirements.

TenCate Geotube® Geobag (GB)

GEOBAG
TenCate Geotube® Geobag (GB)

TenCate Geotube® Geobag (GB) units are pillow or box shaped and typically range in volume from 0.5m³ to 8m³. The skin can consist of either an engineered woven or a composite fabric depending on the application requirements. The units are hydraulically filled with sand either near-site or on-site prior to placement.


TenCate Geotube® Geotube (GT)


GEOTUBE
TenCate Geotube® Geotube (GT)

TenCate Geotube® Geotube (GT) units are tubular shaped and typically range in diameter from 1.5m to 5m. The skin can consist of either an engineered woven or a composite fabric depending on the application requirements. The units are hydraulically filled with sand on-site.


TenCate Geotube® Geocontainer (GC)

GEOTUBE CONTAINER
TenCate Geotube® Geocontainer (GC)

TenCate Geotube® Geocontainer (GC) units are envelope or tubular shaped and typically range in volume from 100m³ to 800m³. These units are deployed from a split-bottom barge and thus are manufactured to suit the specific dimensions of the barge. The skin can consist of either an engineered woven or a composite fabric depending on the application requirements. The units are filled with sand prior to sealing and dumping from the split-bottom barge.


TenCate Geotube® Sand Filled Mattress (SFM)

SANDFILL MATRESS
TenCate Geotube® Sand Filled Mattress (SFM)

TenCate Geotube® Sand Filled Mattress (SFM) units are mattress shaped and typically range in thickness from 0.15m to 0.3m. The bottom skin of the mattress is composed of a woven geotextile while the top skin is composed of an engineered composite fabric. The mattress is filled hydraulically with sand on-site.


TenCate Geotube® Concrete Mattress (CM)

CM
TenCate Geotube® Concrete Mattress (CM)

TenCate Geotube® Concrete Mattress (CM) units are mattress shaped and typically range in thickness from 80mm to 180mm. The skins of the mattress are composed of an engineered woven fabric and the mattress is filled with cement mortar on-site.

Typical applications of TenCate Geotube® Geocontainment units include:

  • Marine structures including onshore and offshore protection structures
  • Shoreline protection including beach and other shoreline protection
  • Waterways protection including lake, river, stream and canal protection
