Beachmaster Sand Fence/Erosion Control Fence

Erosion Control Fence

Beaches and dunes are dynamic, but fragile coastal systems and the balance between accretion and erosion is a natural process of currents, waves and wind, and their interactions with the dune systems that protect the land and assets behind.

When the balance is upset and erosion begins to result in coastal recession or accretion results in sand inundation of assets, the need for intervention by managers becomes necessary.

Beachmaster« Sand Fence is designed to provide coastal land managers with one multiuse tool which offers a range of options to deal with erosion at a very budget friendly cost.

Erosion control fencing is one of the most efficient and economical methods of accreting sand on coastal beach and dune systems.

Beachmaster« Sand Fence can be used as a conventional erosion control fence to accrete eolian sand in backshore areas or it can be deployed in the foreshore or littoral zone to re-establish beaches and help protect existing morphology. The Beachmaster« Sand Fence system has been designed to withstand the regular impact of waves on exposed coasts and will accrete hydraulically transported sand in the same way as conventional erosion control fences accrete eolian sand only at higher rates.

Beachmaster« attributes are:

  1. Faster beach and dune building
  2. Greater shoreline resilience because of faster beach and dune building
  3. Added protection of existing beach andádune morphology
  4. Minimal interference with natural processes
  5. Asset protection without loosing your beach
  6. Greater durability and longer operational life than conventional sand fence
  7. Low cost when compared to large scale renourishment and hard engineering programs
  8. Quick to install
  9. Aesthetically pleasing and good public acceptance
  10. The fence fabric is entirely biodegradable and recyclable with no plastic components
  11. Beachmaster« is also an excellent exclusion fence and looks great

Beachmaster« Sand Fence will Accrete, Retain and Defend sand accounts on beaches and dunes.

Beachmaster« Sand Fence can be used as a standalone installation, or to augment larger scale beach renourishment projects and is most effective when installed in combination with revegetation programs. It can be used as a sand retention structure, a sand accretion structure or it will perform both tasks at the same time.

Because Beachmaster Sand Fence is designed to withstand waves and tides, the environment in which sand fence can be deployed has been extended to foreshore areas below the limit of wave run up.á For the purposes of simplification, fences installed above the extent of wave run up are refered to as DRY FENCES and fences installed below the extent of wave run up are refered to as WET FENCES.
