Beach erosion continues to plague coastal communities all over the globe. Increasing costs along with limited, temporary results for previously accepted historical re-nourishment methods such as beach dredging, coastal armoring, sea walls, groynes and jettys have many coastal property owners and organizations looking for a natural, long term solution to beach erosion issues.
The Sandsaver™, a rotationally molded beach erosion barrier is quickly becoming one of the most sought out beach restoration methods. The Sandsaver™ provides a natural solution to beach erosion by breaking down the energy of the wave as the surf comes into the beach, as the wave crashes against the front of the Sandsaver modules. Once the wave energy is broken down as it crashes against the beach erosion barrier, the water activity carries the sand & sediment thru the larger openings on the surf side of the module, where it speeds through the tapered smaller openings on the beach side of the module, allowing the sand time to settle on the beach side of the module as the water retreats back into the surf.
Using basic conservative calculations, the Sandsaver re-builds beachfront property through a natural means of beach renourishment, using the wave energy, activity and sand contents of the water at a fraction of the cost of other traditionally accepted methods such as dredging, groynes, jettys or coastal armoring.
The modular sandsaver system can be used on a temporary basis, putting the modules in place, allowing them to re-build the beach and either moving them forward into the surf in effort to build additional width profile to the beach, leave them in place to provide a long term solution or remove them, allowing for nature to run its course and putting them back once the beachfront property becomes eroded once again.
The Sandsaver™ has been proven successful in multiple beach restoration projects in Lake Michigan, Gulf of Mexico and the Indian Ocean. With the proven successes across multiple coastal regions, the Sandsaver continues to garner immense international interest as a viable replacement to traditional, less effective methods, such as dredging, re-nourishment and other hardened structures such as coastal armoring, sea walls and more.
