Sandsaver Beach Erosion Solution
Sandsaver, a rotationally molded product that provides a natural solution to beach erosion is an example of rotomolding innovation by Granger Plastics Company. The patented Sandsaver modules work in 2 ways, firstly by breaking down the energy of the wave as it crashes against the concrete filled barriers, reducing the waves energy. As the surf crashes against the modules, the water and sand can pass thru the large, surf side opening of the module as it speeds up thru the tapered hole and gets deposited on the beach side of the modules. As the surf retreats, the water exits thru the smaller opening of the beach side of the module, giving the sand plenty of time to settle. Over time, the modules will accrete sand on both sides of the modules, creating a nice gentle slope on the beach.
Beach erosion issues plagues governments and communities all around the World to the tune of billions of dollars each year. Unfortunately there’s been little to few innovations in solving beach erosion issues in the last several years. Political cronyism, along with deep pocketed lobbyists keep may coastal communities practicing insanity, by approving dredging projects over and over again. While the costs continue to increase, typically funded in the form of increased property taxes, levys or bonds- the results continue to disappear with each high-dollar dredging project, typically even faster than the previous beach dredging project.
Sandsaver has now been installed in multiple locations including The Great Lakes, Gulf of Mexico and the Indian Ocean. Each of these installs have shown positive signs as a beach erosion solution that will provide longer term results and a far better return on investment in comparison to less effective methods such as dreding (beach renourishment), groynes, jettys or sea walls.
