The Wave Attenuation & EROSION Technology Solution.

Living Shoreline Inc. (LSSI) has over 100 years of combined experience in its representative fields of Peer-Reviewed Research & Development. We have produced Fully-Patented, Proven Technology and for over 20 years have deployed it in the field. Our Project Success Rate, to date, is 100% - unprecedented in the Field. Productive, Durable, & Stable Marine Habitat that mitigates and, in many cases, reverses shoreline erosion.

wave attenuation devices® (WAD®s)

WAD®s are the Total Beach & Shoreline Management System.

THE SOLUTION

WAD®s – The World’s Only “Scientifically Engineered and Designed” artificial marine life habitat and wave attenuation system. Modeled from natural coastal protection and marine life habitat characteristics of the world’s barrier reef systems.

NATURE'S PARTNER

WAD®s are built to accelerate rapid marine growth on all hard substrate surfaces, both inside and outside the structure, and are specifically engineered to act as wave attenuation devices to protect the world’s coastlines and enhance marine Biomass.

Protect

Stop, even Reverse Erosion and promote beach accretion and natural shoreline. Shield and boost natural Biomass.

Restore

Promote Stable Beach Habitat, negligible live bottom impact; passive accretion, and ecological enhancement.

Adapt

Portable, Fluid, and Diverse Array Design. Cost effective & adapted to meet each individual client's site-specific needs.

DECADES OF SUCCESS

Living Shoreline Solutions Inc. (LSSI) holds U.S. and International patents on its leading-edge technologies.  We have not stopped innovating. Our latest corrugated WAD® takes wave attenuation and erosion mitigation to a new, unprecedented level.  Always leading the industry with patented and engineered Protective and Productive barrier reef systems.  We design Customized Shoreline Management Systems utilizing our arsenal of proven WADs® to meet shoreline challenges all over the world. 

(Our Team) gives unanimous support of approval for the WADs to be used throughout the entire project. Thanks for resolving the erosion issues for PGS and meeting all our deadlines. It allowed us to bring home one of the ONLY two prestigious Presidential Awards for protecting waters the Continental US and Gulf of Mexico.
The WAD® system, has far exceeded my expectations. It is also a very cost-effective option. This system is not off-the-shelf, but site-specfic, modeled and engineered for the (location) conditions. This system works dramatically. It has protected our properties by preventing further erosion and preventing foundation uindemining. It has increased the Villas’ value through the reclamation of land lost from the original title, and through the stabilization and expansion of the world famous Negril beach fronting the property.
With WAD®s, both shoreline protection and high sediment accretion rates are provided, in one simple package. They can then be easily repositioned further offshore for continued accretion or down the shoreline as an even more cost effective method of rebuilding additional beachfront. Further, these WAD®s can often support large amounts of marine biomass and act as a marine life habitat, further contributing to the recreational appeal and tourism aspects of our beaches and snorkeling barrier reefs.
The Fish Haven®/Coastal Haven® series modules are methodically designed to promote and accelerate rapid marine growth on all hard substrate surfaces, both inside and outside the structure and specifically engineered to act as wave attenuation devices to protect the world’s coastlines. The hydrodynamic engineered shape of the units and designed openings promote a “designed flow of micronutrient rich water” across all surfaces. Combined with the engineered light access, this leads to unsurpassed biomass development and reef productivity.
This is the only known product that is environmentally sensitive with similar characteristics of a natural barrier reef, attracts a full array of local marine species and promote marine growth on all surfaces of the reef, provides engineered openings to promote designed flow of micronutrient rich water across all surfaces and increase light access to promote the rapid growth of marine life. The design of the reef system provides substantial cover and spawning habitat, contain the geometric and physical material properties similar to a breakwater in order to withstand wave heights and currents associated with a local 20-year storm events, as well as provide a structurally useful minimum 25 year life.
