Our technology effectively fights beach erosion by reducing wave energy, while capturing sand that is suspended in the nearshore waters. Made with eco-friendly and highly durable material, both the Derosion Lattice and Derosion Boat are designed to be submerged in shallow sea water.

Unlike sand nourishment, our method does not need to be repeated every couple of years; the sand accumulated does not get eroded away again, and will not bury creatures/reefs alive.

Our method reduces wave energy through friction and vibration, enabling sediments to evenly and steadily accreed on the beach. Unlike breakwaters which change the direction of the waves, our method will NOT create a groyne effect and cause erosion further down the coastline.

Derosion Lattice

The Derosion Lattice is installed in shallow waters at an angle to sea level, able to reduce wave energy by 30-50%. Sediment accumulates gradually with each wave that washes over the lattice. Over time, sand depth will increase both in front and behind the Derosion Lattice, reducing the steepness in slope and pushing out the shoreline towards the sea.

Schematic Design

  • Polyamide Lattice – these pieces work to reduce wave energy through friction and vibration, while capturing sand brought in by the waves
  • Floaters – to keep the lattice afloat for optimal efficiency
  • Steel Pipe Frame – provides a. Durable structure to withstand strong waves
  • Support Pillars – these prop up the lattice, at an angle to waves crashing in
