The Technic bank retention system was specified to prevent erosion and strengthen the bank margins of a canal running through the city of Hoorn in the Netherlands. Over 10 kilometers of Technic Bank Retention system was installed and the banks re seeded, creating a safe and attracive section of the canal through the city.

Previous hardwood timber logs had rotted leaving sections of the bank unsafe. The timber had lasted for approximately 20 years but the durable Technic system has an expected lifetime of 50+ years.

The Technic bank retention system consists of recycled plastic sheets which are strong but light, making them easy to install. The sheets lock together and are held in place against the bank by piles (available at varying lengths). The  FSC certified timber piles are coated with recycled plastic at the air/water interface and above, producing a rot proof, maintenance free bank retention system.
