HOW IT WORKS
The high tensile and shear strength of the Ecobale matrix allows for use as a breakwater structure that dissipates wave energy along high energy corridors of shoreline. In addition, the open structure of the matrix allows for the collection and retention of sediments.
LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN-LESS COSTLY DEPLOYMENT
EcoBale comes in 2 sizes. 5'H x 4.5'D and 7.5'H x 4.5'D. The 5' EcoBale weighs 265# and the 7.5' weighs 400#.
The lightweight design enables maximum unit deployment during transport and minimal effect on barge draft. This eliminates the need for dredging shallow areas for access. The lightweight design not only reduces the number of material transport trips, but also lessens logistical delays.
With 96% void space, the open cell design of the EcoBale provides wave dissipation and collection of entrained sediments.
THE BENEFITS OF ECOBALE
• Wave Dissipation
• Aquatic Habitat Promotion
• Decreased Installation and Mobilization Equipment
