Resilient Solutions for Coastal & Waterway Construction & Protection

Construction and protection projects along eroding coastal areas and waterways are among the most challenging to undertake. Irregular land contours, variable subgrades, continuous scour and a variety of harsh conditions can make any project increasingly difficult to stage and execute. Conventional solutions can be less adaptable to these dynamic environments.

Tensar International’s Triton® Coastal and Waterway Systems adapt to the most difficult conditions to provide durable solutions that reduce costs. A family of innovative composite marine structures, Triton Systems are made of geogrid and geotextile materials designed to be integrated with available fill and/or native vegetation.

 

Altogether, Triton Systems are used for:

  • Living shoreline structures
  • Erosion control and scour protection  on causeway, levee, dike and bridge approach projects
  • Foundations or cores for breakwaters, groins, underwater utility/pipeline installations, etc.
  • Channel linings
  • Bridge scour protection
  • Underlayers for riprap in submerged and soft soils
  • In situ capping of contaminated sediments
  • Shore protection and sediment dewatering

Flexible and resilient, Triton Systems conform to land contours and site formations, resisting scour far better than rigid systems. And because they feature Tensar® Geogrids, they resist all naturally occurring forms of chemical, biological and environmental degradation – from salt water to industrial runoff to contaminated sediments. That’s why they’re often specified for aggressive site conditions where other types of materials would rapidly deteriorate.
