MARINE & RIVER WORKS

COASTAL PROTECTION
Geotess Geotextiles protect the coast line as their flexibility and permeability ensure withstanding to the impact of waves
and currents, preventing erosion and washing out of fines.

RIVER BANKS AND CANALS
Geotess Geotextiles protect river banks and canals in an effective and environmentally friendly way.

Geotess® NO RIVAL

Specifically developed to respond to the installation challenges of geotextile, Geotess® products are a breakthrough of importance comparing with other traditional construction techniques.

FILTRATION AND EROSION CONTROL

Supported by a constant innovating tradition, Geotess® geotextile has no equals under the most extreme application conditions. The product can reach 2000 gr per square meter and was mainly studied to control erosion in coastal, river and mountain areas.

PROTECTION

90% of the damages to a geotextiles occur during the installation. Geotess® ensure a total resistance to this primary challenge consequently guaranteeing a long life service. It is made of high quality polypropylene fibres allowing it to comply with the strictest project requirements.

DRAINAGE

Thanks to its weight and thickness, it represents a unique drainage system.
Landfills and tunnels are just two of the most common uses of the product.

The flood events of recent years have demonstrate, how the intervention on rivers with traditional techniques, often not only is ineffective but even counterproductive. It is now recognized that the design of hydraulic defense should be done without altering the nature excessively, in order to obtain the expected results. Geotess® is the answer to the designer to solve some problems of management and water protection in both fluvial and marine, always respecting as much as possible the environmental balance. Geotess® geotextiles reduce the erosion on the banks, stabilize the banks of canals and ditches, create a filter layer and separator in bank protection, build coastal defense in marine works.
