Coastal and river bank protection

Geotextiles are used as filter blankets underneath revetments. Their purpose is to prevent erosion caused by the energy of waves and currents and to allow free two-way flow between the water body and the ground without the build up of hydraulic pressure. Geotextiles replace partly, or completely, expensive mineral filter layers. Geosynthetics from TenCate provide both, optimized filtration behaviour for fine or coarse grained soils and high resistance to damage. 

TenCate Geotube® containers are geotextile encapsulated soils that may be used to replace rock as conventional building blocks in marine and hydraulic engineering structures.
