The pre-cultivated plants develop quickly and reliably on our island structure. The natural development of plants creates a habitat for animals both above and below water. The plants form offshoots on the islands and water filtration increases with the growth of the plants.
Promotes biodiversity at the water / wakepark
The floating islands can be used in the following applications.
The creation of waves on a wakeboard facility is significantly influenced by two components: the wind and the water sports enthusiasts. Water sports enthusiasts alone create an undamped, chaotic wave pattern after a few minutes, which is shown by a rocked water surface with disturbing wave movement in the riding area. The Reed Islands dampen this wave movement by using inertia. When waves come in, the reed islands absorb the wave energy. By raising and lowering the islands, the wave energy is absorbed and weakened. The wave damping is increased on the surface of the water by the reed plants. The pronounced roots under the surface of the water absorb the waves.
Wind waves and their height depend on the length of the wind stroke and the wind strength. With an installation of the reed islands, the lake will be divided into individual sections and thus the length of the wind blow will be shortened. Depending on the direction of the water and the prevailing wind conditions, very good wave prevention can be achieved. The waves that are generated by water sports enthusiasts depend on many parameters. The following should be mentioned at this point: number of water sports enthusiasts, individual route, type of water sports equipment and the weight of the respective driver. The waves generated by the water sports enthusiasts run towards the center of the lake. There they meet the waves generated by the other water sports enthusiasts. In the middle of the lake there are wave effects such as interference and reflections in all directions, which rock the water. After installing the reed islands in the middle of the cableway, the wave interactions between the various lanes are prevented and thus weakened. This leads to a calmed lake surface with improved properties for wakeboarders.
Standing waters in Europe represent a complex habitat for animals, microorganisms and plants. A high number of people who stay near a lake have an impact on the ecological balance. The Reed Islands bring a piece of natural habitat back into your waters. New biocenoses arise both in the root branches under water and in the vegetation above water. The installation of the Reed Islands is not only ecologically harmless, but also promotes the positive development of a natural habitat for microorganisms, plants and animals above and below water by integrating plants in your water.
In standing water without an inflow, nutrients accumulate. Nutrients are phosphorus and nitrogen compounds, for example leaves that fall into the lake or a large number of people who swim in your water. The accumulation of nutrients in water can increase over the years, especially in quarry ponds where the natural balance is not yet fully developed. If there are too many nutrients in the water, the dreaded formation of algae can occur. Some of these nutrients are absorbed and broken down by the Reed Islands.
The Reed Islands calm the lake and reduce the average wave height in the water. This feature of the islands means that the bank edge and bank vegetation are less polluted.
If you already have erosion problems in the bank area, we can advise you individually on this topic.
