The geobag, or geotextile bag, is a textile product used for the protection of hydraulic and natural structures, such as river banks and beaches, from severe erosion and scouring. The geobag or geotextile bag is a geo-synthetic product which is made out of polyester, polypropylene and is used for the protection of hydraulic structures and river banks from severe erosion and scouring. They are designed to be filled and is installed while the construction of marine and hydraulic structures. Geobags are customized in different sizes and forms that suits the requirements of design and installation.
Geobags are made out of polyester or polypropylene, designed to be filled and installed during the construction of marine and hydraulic structures. They can be fabricated out of either woven or non-woven geotextiles, in various different sizes and forms, and are also able to be customized according to the specific design and installation requirements of the user or application.
Geotextile bags are generally ideal for use on dry land, but can also be effective when installed and used underwater. During construction, they are filled with sand and then sealed using hot rings, before being lifted on a harness and spreader beam arrangement to be installed as required. In comparison to non-woven textiles, woven geotextile bags offer higher levels of stability.
Ocean geobags are cost effective, good quality and durable, with a long service life and high levels of UV resistance. Prompt delivery can also be arranged, to facilitate quick implementation when needed. these geobags are placed on the top of the slope. At the time of the storm, the sand in these bags scour and the bags themselves will move down though the slope.
Geotextile bags offer protection to terrestrial habitats, and are a highly preferably alternative to conventional marine protection materials. They are readily acquired and implemented, and can also be transported easily when empty. The higher thickness levels of Ocean geobags ensures effective resistance against punctures and abrasion.
