SoilTain® Tubes

Large-format coastal protection tubes for coastal and shore protection

SoilTain Tubes are large-format geosynthetic containers with which you can erect continuous barriers with high positional stability on coastal and shore sections. A configuration, as a system, ensures a positionally stable and scour-free protection underneath the tube, even on very soft subsoils and in erosion-prone areas.

The scour protection mat consisting of a ribbon fabric with anchor tubes prevents erosion phenomena and scour below the SoilTain Tubes.  The scour protection mat is optimally protected from possible undercutting by integrated anchor hoses and guarantees its positional stability.

The geosynthetic fabric of the SoilTain Tubes, which was specially developed for sustainable coastal protection solutions, is characterised by its high robustness during installation as well as its long-term abrasion resistance. The sand-coloured cover of the tubes can be integrated visually into the landscape and is also quickly colonised underwater by maritime flora and fauna. The use of geotextile coastal protection tubes is completely harmless. This is demonstrated both in practice and by scientific evidence.
