SoilTain® Bags

The all-rounder of geotextile sand containers

SoilTain Bags are small and large-sized geosynthetic sand containers for securing coastal, shore and harbour areas at risk of erosion. Thanks to the flexible shell, the deformable filling material can compensate for subsoil as well as structural deformations. Increased structural safety is thus ensured.

With a filter-stable construction made of SoilTain Bags, mineral filter layers can be completely replaced and material can be saved. In addition, the filter stability allows for increased structural safety. In addition to the conventional SoilTain Bags, our SoilTain Bags Xtreme are now also available. The unique two-layer composite and a high material thickness (up to 1,800 g/m²) provide optimum protection against vandalism and other extreme mechanical influences.

They are particularly suitable for permanently exposed revetments, scour protection and structures with required adaptability of the components.
