Breakwater Geotextile Tubes are a synthetic barrier used along shorelines and beaches to help control erosion. Often referred to as a breakwater tube, these barriers act as a first line of defense against waves and tidal action. As the waves crash into the area, they will hit the tube first, limiting the exposure of beaches and shores. Tubes have helped areas retain sand/shorelines and have worked to prevent further erosion or loss in the area.
Shoreline erosion control tubes are made from a woven geotextile fabric that is UV stabilized and well-equipped to handle outdoor elements and exposure. Their robust materials and high strength fabrics have made them the perfect choice for home protection, beach font properties, and other coastal areas. All tubes can be made in extended lengths and sizes to accommodate different coastal areas.
