SoilTain® coastal protection

Technical textile tube system for coastal protection.

SoilTain® tubes for coastal or bank protection are technical textile containment systems of near-circular cross-section. When filled with sand, they serve to protect coastlines, river banks etc. against erosion by waves or currents. SoilTain® tubes can be incorporated as part of a larger scheme or can act alone as independent structural elements.
While SoilTain® tubes are, in most cases, filled hydraulically with a sand/water slurry, they can also be filled by a combined mechanical/hydraulic method.


  • Tubes manufactured from special developed technical textiles
  • Use of sand-colored tubes can optimize visual integration in a beach environment
  • State-of-the-art design technology is used
  • Project-specific bespoke tubes are normally produced
