The TRITON Coastal and Waterway Systems are a family of composite marine systems that provide durability and reduced costs for construction applications both in and around the water. The Triton family includes marine mattresses, marine cells, and gabions together with the GRIDGUARD Concrete Revetment System. They are typically used for:
  • Erosion control projects
  • Foundations or cores for breakwaters, groins, etc.
  • High-strength fills built in submerged conditions or with weak fill materials
Use of readily available, natural fill material to create highly resilient, flexible cells means the Triton Systems are significantly less expensive than conventional solutions such as rip rap. They also conform to land contours and site configurations while resisting scour far better than rigid systems. Because TENSAR structural geogrids enable the Triton Systems to resist all naturally occurring forms of chemical, biological, and environmental degradation, they are often specified for salt water and industrial run-off conditions where other types of materials would deteriorate rapidly.
