A new concept for sea defence walls

Much thought has been given over the past twenty years as to the best design for coastal and sea defence walls. Now we have a new concept called ‘The TBLOCK System‘ recently developed by Alan Thompson MIMechE. It consists of a mass concrete structure which interlocks with adjoining TBLOCKs by a cut out down opposite vertical corners.

It has been developed to offer an alternative engineering solution for sea defence and coast protection problems at a time when global warming and climate change, not to mention sand and gravel seizure, offers new challenges to Engineers. Details are to be found at www.tblocks.co.uk
