Where water and concrete meet: the Tetrapod from BETONBLOCK®.
New in coastal technology is the BETONBLOCK® Tetrapod, for producing innovative, cleverly designed concrete breakwater elements. With the Tetrapod mold, you can create concrete elements for coastal protection in a wide range of sizes. One of the main features of the Tetrapod is its shape, providing a better breakwater effect. Conventional breakwaters like boulders and concrete blocks move easily under the force of the waves. But BETONBLOCK®’s Tetrapod is designed in such a way that the force of the incoming water decreases; the broken waves flow around the Tetrapod instead of against it, thus losing their impact.
The Tetrapod concrete elements are not only more efficient and effective, they are also more reliable. That is because ‘random’ placement of several interlocking Tetrapod elements minimises displacement. Numbering each individual concrete breakwater element also makes it easy to check for any movement.
Tetrapod molds from small to large
The wide range of Tetrapod molds, from small (1.5 tons) to very large (25 tons), makes it possible to create a suitable water barrier. As always our watchword applies to these concrete breakwater elements as well: durability through quality! The molds are made of high quality structural steel and will last for years thanks to their excellent powder coating.
