A barrier against time and tides
Intracoastal erosion affects the gradient, shape and length of coastal banks and coastlines. This occurs due to the forces of wind, rainfall and other natural agents in conjunction with the slope of the land and soil conditions. Activity within the water, from boats and tides, can also have a profound affect on erosion.
If not properly cared for, intracoastal erosion can lead to loss of land, unstable environments and maintenance issues for homeowners and property and commercial managers. They can also become hazardous and a danger to life if allowed to deteriorate too badly.
The best method for prevention
The best way to prevent intracoastal erosion occurs during the build phase as this guarantees the appropriate anchoring methods are used to avoid future erosion. However, more often than not we find that our services are required when the erosion has already occurred, whether it’s in the early stages, or when significant erosion is present.
Our DredgeSOX and ShoreSOX systems have the innate ability to repair eroding shorelines with its patented design friendly technical mesh and anchoring system. As with all our products in most environments, they are easy to install, they provide almost immediate control of areas under threat.
