Product description

Protect your home and business from flash flooding and adverse weather conditions

UK Flood statistics

  • 1 in 6 homes are at risk of flooding
  • 5.2 million people live in immediate flood risk areas
  • 40% of businesses do not reopen after suffering catastrophic loss after a flood
  • Flooding and managing it costs the UK around £2.2 billion each year
  • The mental health impact of flooding can last more than 2 years

Compact and portable, these flood cubes have a shelf life of 5 years when the packaging remains unopened and are small enough to store in a cupboard or drawer making them a must have staple in case you find yourself in a flash flood or storm where you house or business could be compromised. The cubes can be used to create a barrier against water at door thresholds and are also great for diverting gushing flowing water which may be travelling down hill.

The non-toxic, environmentally friendly material can be dispersed into the ground after use. And the outer sack should be put in the general waste. The cubes can be expanded prior to use in by submerging in water using a sink, bucket or by hosing them down alternatively they can be deployed and activated by the flood water - as long as it is fresh water and not salt water. The cubes are fully activated in approximately 5 minutes - expansion time varies due to water temperature and flow rate. If you're in need of a taller flood barrier, you can stack your flood cubes on top of each other, in a brick fashion, with a recommended maximum height of 1200mm.

Each flood protection cube weighs 21kg when activated, that's as much as 21 bags of sugar. The integral handles help you to lift them but be sure to take care of your back when moving them.
