Product description

Protect your home or business from flash flooding, storms and other flood damage with this clever alternative to traditional to traditional sandbags

Traditional sandbags are heavy, bulky, dirty and generally awkward to handle. Our portable sandbags are lightweight, portable and compact and can be deployed in minutes and disposed of easily.

The bags change from being as light as a pillowcase (200g) to as heavy and secure as a sandbag (20kg) within a few minutes

The semi-porous inner liner within the bag contains a gelling polymer which absorbs water to become taut in just over 3 minutes. Once the water is absorbed it is held within the bag adding weight which ensures the bag stays in place and keeps the flood water out.

Customer Questions

Gordon Lynch - 03 Mar 2021

Q. I want to create a permanent barrier against a stream that floods occasionally, are the alternative to sandbags long lasting?

A. Due to the biodegradable nature of these sandbags they will not offer a permanent barrier.

Robert R Hollingsworth - 27 Aug 2020

Q. Are they re useable or a one off protection?

A. As nearly all flood water is contaminated it not advisable to reuse due to potential health problems.
