Repairing Sea Walls
Water, though fluid, natural, and the basis of all life, is also one of the most powerful and potentially destructive forces that nature has in its arsenal. It is capable of immense destruction in any number of environments, and has often shown its might throughout the entirety of human existence. From major natural events such as tsunamis and floods to the less extreme cases of rust, corrosion, and wood rot, water has proven itself to be a formidable force of nature. What can be done to protect properties that are constantly fending off the natural force of water? And, if a structure has already faced water damage, what is the best way to repair it to ensure maximum longevity? The answer to strengthening and repairing foundations and walls, including sea walls, is carbon fiber.
One of the most incredible and often overlooked uses of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) is to strengthen and repair sea walls. These underwater structures not only prevent the erosion of coastal land into lakes, rivers, and oceans, but they are the first line of defense in protecting your waterfront property. Due to their submerged nature, sea walls can crumble and fail over time if not properly supported. Fortunately, our carbon fiber wall repair kits are viable options to repair damaged sea walls and reinforce new ones. When applied to sea walls, our carbon fiber products can correct existing damage and provide the support needed to remain strong for years into the future.
