REEF MODULES

BOTL designs reef modules inspired by building blocks. The pictures and schematics shown are for illustrative purposes only. Final shape and design may vary depending on the customer’s needs.

BOTL BASIC WAVE™ DESIGN

BOTL Basic Wave™ design is based on an octagonal shape with a diagonal centre plate in order to create as much growth surface as possible. Furthermore, the diagonal plate provides shade and shelter for marine life.

The various holes in the module can be adjusted in size and, as such, adapted to the requirements of local marine life. The Basic Wave™ series starts with the BW5 (115m³) and ends with the BW2 (7.4m³). Besides its function as a divable reef module, this model can be used for coastal protection as well. Transformed into a closed model by using a top plate with pressure-release holes, it reduces the kinetic energy caused by strong currents and/or waves.

The substrates and core reinforcement materials used are low-carbon impact materials. The module material used consists of low-carbon-impact eco geopolymer concrete, which is manufactured locally, as close as possible to the deployment sites.
