WAVE ATTENUATOR MODEL OVERVIEW:

There are two sizes of WaveEater™ wave attenuators available:

  • Model 1224 - 12" x 24". Ideal for swim area markers, aeration floats and jet ski barriers.
  • Model 3636 - 36" x 36". A variety of uses including wave attenuation, erosion control and debris booms.

WaveEater's greatest qualities:

    Economical
    Most breakwater systems cost $1500+ per lineal foot. WaveEater's™ wave attenuators use economical materials and simplicity of design to allow this system to cost as little as $150.00 per lineal foot installed.

    Strong
    Molded of high-strength polyethylene, WaveEater™ is nearly indestructible.

    Easy Installation - Simply set the units in place, connect the line to moorings and fill with water to submerge the units to a depth of two-thirds their diameter. If seasonal removal of your breakwater system is required, just haul, drain and store.

    Safe - WaveEaters™ wave attenuators are bright orange or white for high visibility in all weather and water conditions (other colors available on request). These breakwater systems contain no wood which rots, or treated piles that leech chemicals into the water.

    Environmentally Friendly - WaveEater™ wave attenuators are clean. In the event of a catastrophe just collect the wave attenuator units and reconnect. No tires at the bottom of the lake, Styrofoam on the beach, or underwater obstacles to interfere with navigation.



WaveEater Model 3636

WaveEater Model 3636 has been in use for over sixteen (16) years. It is used in any number of applications including; wave attenuation, dam protection, shore erosion control and debris booms in the US and other parts of the world.

Materials:
Constructed from high strength molded polyethylene the units are 36” (91.4cm) in diameter by 36”  (91.4cm) long. There is a 2” (5cm) fill hole if partial submergence is required. An option is a ¾” (22mm).

Colors:
Standard colors are high visibility orange and white. Other attenuator colors are available on request, (minimum 50 units). Refer to color palette.

Economical:
Costs are as low as $150.00 per lineal foot of wave dissipation system installed.

Configuration.
WaveEater designs are most generally constructed in three effective dissipation configurations;Straight Line, Sawtooth, or Grid patterns.

In deciding which attenuator system is right for you consult with factory engineering support or refer to the wave dissipation chart. Other important factors to consider are the length of the water column and lessening of water depth as the wave approaches shore.



WaveEater Model 1224

WaveEater Model 1224 is a premier product for use in open water swim areas and as a beach erosion mitigation system in small environmentally sensitive locations.

Many State Parks and Homeowners Associations have found the 1224 breakwater system to be far superior to other forms of wave attenuators. The size of the attenuators allows them to be seen from much further away, and the option of submerging them partially to create some wave attenuation is a benefit to the area users.

Due to our manufacturing process of molded polyethylene and UV inhibitors, these wave attenuators have a far longer life span than other products currently on the market.

Since 1995 there have been wave barrier systems in place with no required replacement parts due to material degradation.

Materials:
Constructed from high strength molded polyethylene the wave attenuators are 12” in diameter by 24” long. There is a ¾” fill hole if partial submergence is required.

Colors:
Standard colors are high visibility orange and white. Other colors are available on request, (minimum 50 units).

Economical:
Costs are as low as $40.00 per lineal foot of breakwater system.
