Waterlogs are rolls of coir (coconut husk) fiber, bound together with a woven coir netting used for streambank stabilization and shoreline protection on low energy flows.They are 100% natural and biodegradable. They provide a stable medium for establishing vegetation which provides long term erosion protection to the banks of the watercourse. Waterlogs have high moisture retention properties and generally last for 4-8 years. They work better on a streambank when the native soil is cohesive clay-like material.
Gabion Solution for Coastal Protection
Groins - installed perpendicular to and extending out from beaches to restore or protect beaches.
Breakwaters - installed parallel to beaches offshore to restore or protect beaches.
Dikes - constructed to form a containment area in which to pump dredge spoils and can also be used for land creation.
Dune Cores - to construct an artificial dune that will subsequently be covered and revegetated.
Gabions offer maximum versatility and ease of use for all your dewatering needs. They are a cost-effective alternative to the belt press method of dewatering sludge and eliminate the need for expensive capital expenditures for equipment. By using gabion containers for dewatering, you can increase the efficiency and reduce dewatering time.
