Continuing coastal erosion across the world is resulting in the development and use of innovative products for effective and unobtrusive shoreline control. The practice of using sand filled goetextile bags, sometimes referred to as "geocontainers," as a replacement for hard armor is well over 50 years old. These "soft" structures have proven to offer significant environmental advantages over conventional hard armor. Sand bags are very effective in shoreline protections such as breakwaters and groins.
US Fabrics' sandbags are made with US 3300, a woven, geotextile made of 100% polypropylene yarns. These yarns are tan and white in color, giving the bags a sand-like appearance which helps them blend into the surrounding environment. US Sandbags are excellent for various beach erosion control applications.
For smaller projects, US Fabrics offers a woven, polypropylene sandbag with a tie that has 1,600 hour UV protection. Size: 14" x 26".
