The GEOWEB® Shoreline Protection System stabilizes soils on shoreline embankments, creating a structurallystable environment for infill. The system minimizes erosion problems caused by water contact, surface flow and small scale wave action.


  • Confines and reinforces the upper soil layer.
  • Provides resistance to erosive conditions and slip forces.
  • May be integrated with a turf reinforcement mat (TRM) for higher protection for vegetation.
  • Protects geomembranes on ponds, or stormwater/wastewater containment basins.


The GEOWEB® system can be designed to provide long-term stability with sustainable vegetation,
permeable aggregate or hard-armored concrete.

  • Vegetated Protection: The GEOWEB® system with established vegetation protects embankments against mild wave and tidal forces. With a TRM cover, offers better resistance to soil loss caused by soil saturation.
  • Aggregate Protection: Confinement in the GEOWEB® structure allows smaller, less-expensive materials to be used, and on steeper slopes than when unconfined.
  • Concrete Hard-Armor Protection: With concrete infill, the GEOWEB® system is a less costly, flexible alternative to articulating block systems.
