Geotextile Sand Containers

GEOTEXTILE SAND CONTAINERS (GSC) ARE ADAPTABLE FOR USE IN A VARIETY OF WAYS TO PROTECT AGAINST COASTAL EROSION.

Cirtex® GSC systems provide a cost-effective solution when compared to traditional coastal erosion protection systems and can be customised to meet site specific requirements.

The GSC’s are manufactured from a thick nonwoven polyester geotextile, available in weights from 600 gsm up to 2500 gsm. This material has excellent abrasion resistance and strength.

A unique anti-vandal coating can also be supplied. This tough outer coating resists penetration by sharp objects such as fishing knives as well as providing additional UV protection because of its ability to trap sand as a surface layer.

Cirtex GSC’s can be supplied with a sewn toe flap for anchoring if required.

Cirtex has approved installers with custom-built filling and placing equipment, as well as the specialised knowledge required to achieve long-lasting, functional and effective results.
