Natural Solution to Beach Erosion

The Sandsaver is quickly becoming one of the most sought after natural solutions to beach erosion. The sandsaver drastically reduces the costs of beach re-nourishment, via using the energy and wave activity of the water. Based on simple conservative economics, that show the modules can be used on a temporary or permanent basis contingent upon the breadth of the given re-nourishment project. With recent proven success, the Sandsaver continues to garner immense international interest as a viable replacement to traditional, less effective methods, ranging from beach dredging, or re-nourishment and other hardened structures such as coastal armoring, sea walls and more.

Sandsaver: A Closer Look

The Sandsaver is an improved, innovative technology based on past proven technology that was readily used in multiple locations spanning multiple decades, called "The Sandgrabber". The Sandgrabber technology worked in multiple installation locations across the United States, including Hawaii, New Jersey and Louisiana.

Compare the 2 views above of the Wheatley Province Park install to see the enormous amount of sand restored in only seven weeks. Erosion has stopped and the sand has almost completely engulfed the "SANDGRABBER" system.

The Sandsaver improves upon providing a viable beach erosion solution where The Sandgrabber left off. The Sandsaver modules work in two ways; Firstly by breaking down the energy of the wave as the as surf crashes against the modules, thus immediately reducing erosion. Second, by allowing the wave, which contains sand to pass through the tapered holes and allowing the sand to settle onto the beach surface. When the tide or water retreats, it has to pass back through the smaller portion of the tapered end of the module, allowing the sand time to settle onto the beach and not back into the surf, thus accreting additional sand for beach surface. Eventually the modules will become fully covered.

The modular construction of the Sandsaver units allows for easy removal of the units, which allows for the units to be used in a number of locations, multiple times, or simply left in place as a permanent install. The extremely durable, rotationally molded polythethylene construction provides a nearly indestructible unit, that when properly filled with concrete, will weigh approximately 5200 pounds.

Sandsaver Features

  • Sandsaver is the only modular system, that promotes beach accretion, while preventing beach erosion.
  • Rotationally Molded from nearly indestructible, Food Grade Polyethylene.
  • Modular design for simple installation, no chains or rebar required.
  • Inexpensive and re-usable in comparison to alternative/currently accepted beach restoration methods.
  • Sandsaver is molded from Polyethylene, which is 100% recyclable.
  • Sandsaver, drastically reduces the carbon footprint of most Beach Restoration projects, by not requiring numerous, gas guzzling Barges.
  • Sandsaver, can be re-used multiple times, for multiple installs, in multiple locations, if so desired. Or the system can be left in place permanently.
  • Environmentally friendly, will not deteriorate, nor will the units "take in" any Sea Turtles or other living organisms, unlike any type of Dredging barges.
  • Each module weighs approximately 5200 pounds when full; Not light weight or easily moved; Tornados/Hurricanes would have to have unheard of speeds to move a module due to the weight. Contingent upon the length of the installation, the weight of the system increases drastically.
  • Tapered through holes with larger opening exposed closest to surf, for easier transport to beach side of module.
  • Will not leave exposed concrete, rocks, wood, or other materials that could be potentially dangerous to those utilizing the beach, alleviating those safety concerns.
  • Modular system allows for as much or as little Beach re-nourishment as needed.
  • Protected by US and International Patents
  • Proudly manufactured in the United States of America.

Sandsaver Lake Michigan Final Report

Click the link below to download and read the final report of the pilot Sandsaver install in Lake Michigan. This report was conducted and performed by a 3rd party engineering firm.

With the reporting containing quotes such as:

"The results of the shoreline in response to the Sandsaver system are unambiguously positive."

Also discovered in the course of the research and study in Lake Michigan, the report states:

"at the very least, the Sandsaver design not generate adjacent negative impacts associated with shore-normal and impermeable structures. The Sandsaver modules permeability and placement in a shore-parallel orientation demonstrated no negative impacts to adjacent stretches of beaches. "
