18 Jan 2021
FloodSax sandless sandbags are an alternative sandbag ideal for flood defence, flood mitigation and flood prevention and are quick and easy to deploy as effective flood barriers.
They transform from being as light as a pillowcase to become better than traditional sandbags in around 3 minutes to provide you with reliable flood protection. It means you don't need to ask 'where do I get sandbags' when a flood is about to strike as local authorities have no responsibility to provide sandbags at all.
FloodSax alternative sandbags are now used by facilities management companies, business continuity and resilience managers, emergency planning managers and flood risk managers and are a must for people living on floodplains.
For FloodSax flood protection to work all you need to do is add water and watch these alternative sandbags miraculously expand!! They are therefore ready for all kinds of sandbagging duties from providing flood barriers for doors to flood protection for offices and commercial buildings.
The semi-porous inner liner within FloodSax contains a special gelling polymer with hundreds of absorbent crystals which absorbs the water to become taut and is an ideal flood management technique for those looking for highly effective solutions to flooding.
They can be expanded in water in a bath, sink, bucket, hosepipe or even the floodwater itself. Once the water is in there, it stays there and the bags act just like sandbags to keep floods at bay. They are designed so they mould into doorways to keep floodwater out.
The semi-porous inner liner within FloodSax contains a special gelling polymer which absorbs 20 kilos of water.
Before they are activated FloodSax alternative sandbags are incredibly lightweight, amazingly weighing just 7 ounces yet once expanded a row of standard 500mm by 450mm by 200mm FloodSax are strong enough to stop a powerful torrent of water in its tracks. Each row of FloodSax will keep around 20cms (8ins) of water out and have proved themselves as flood barriers time and again worldwide.
Although they are often deployed outside as a barrier to prevent floodwater from getting into homes or business they can be used inside to soak up leaks and spills in hard to reach places such as beneath faulty boilers, radiators and pipes.
People searching for them on the internet call them all kinds of different names including gelbags, floodsacks, polymer bags, sandbags other, polymer sand bags, floodbags ... but their proper name in FloodSax.
