Riverbank and Channel Protection

Wing Dams / Groynes

Related Products

Alteration of turbulent currents and modification of riverside habitats are achieved by installing ACETube® geotextile tubes perpendicular to riverbanks that form groynes. These flexible groyne structures, withstanding the uneven landform, alter flow direction and decrease flow velocities which restrains lateral erosion. The trapped sediment extends and maintains the river banks.
