Maccaferri MacScour provides protection to the foundations of coastal structures and prevents scour under wave attack.
MacScour comprises a central ‘MacTube’ unit with additional smaller anchor tubes along the landward and seaward sides of the structure. Positioned longitudinally along the coastline, MacScour protects the seabed/foundation from overtopping waves and prevent undermining of the structure being protected.
The tubes and intermediate textile is composed of high-tenacity polypropylene (PP) yarns, which are woven into a structurally stable network to accommodate the high demands required for geotextile scour protection required in marine applications.
MacScour is inert to biological degradation and resistant to most naturally encountered chemicals, alkalis, and acids.
