Wave Attenuation Model 3636

Wave Eater 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.

Straight Line

The straight line configuration may be chosen when wave frequency is short, (less than 10 feet), and the wave height is less than two feet. It is also an excellent choice for use as a spillway warning barrier or erosion mitigation of earthen dams.


The Sawtooth system is our most popular design. It is economical and provides a much higher percentage of wave dissipation than a straight line. Greater attenuation is achieved due to more surface area and angles for the wave to pass through.

The anchor configuration is the same as a Grid system. If a Grid is desired at a future date there is no need to construct additional anchors.

Grid Pattern

The Grid is the most efficient of the Wave Eater systems. In order to attenuate longer waves a larger mass of units is required. (The obstacle in a wave’s path needs to be larger than the wave itself).

We can design a Grid pattern in a width to meet almost any need for total wave suppression.
