Bunker liners are growing in popularity as a potential remedy for some of the worst problems bunkers suffer. There are primarily two different types of liners on the market today - geotextile fabrics (such as those produced by SandMat and SandTrapper) and polyurethane sprays that bind the soil substrate together (manufactured by companies like Klingstone).
