Environmentally friendly wave breaker in PE plastic

Wave breaker – Sintef approved

If your marina is exposed to large waves, the construction of a breakwater is the traditional solution to the problem. However, in many cases this is not feasible, either because of economical or regulatory realities. A wave breaker from Astorplast solves this problem.

The wave breaker is maintenance free and has been extensively tested by the Norwegian indepedent research organization Sintef with excellent results. Waves with a wave period of less than 3 seconds – waves cause by boat traffic and wind – are reduced by a minimum of 50 % when interacting with the wave breaker. Our own experiences with wave breakers show similar or better results. Read more about the tests below.
