The Hex Box was designed to create a breakwater or sill as inexpensively as possible with the least amount of impact on the environment.
It uses a precast concrete structure that can be floated or carried into position and sunk.
The units lock together with their neighbors to create a massive composite structure to resist the forces of the waves.
It’s angled walls with large holes lowers the wave reflection and allows water and animals to still pass through the structure while dissipating the wave’s energy. This causes the sand carried by the wave to settle out behind the breakwater, creating a wide beach that protects the shoreline from storms.
