HydroSack Sand bags and Flood Barrier
The Hydrosack Flood Barrier and Sand Bags are the new, modern method to create a highly effective barrier to the threat of flood water in domestic and commercial properties. Flood Barrier and Sand Bags are the perfect substitutes for the old, traditional sandbag which is not only less effective but is also difficult to handle, labour intensive and a potential health hazard. When soaked with water before installation, the Hydrosack Flood Barrier and Sand Bags absorb up to 20 litres of water. The Flood Barrier and Sand Bags let the water in but refuse to let the water out, even when punctured and when built into layers, the Hydrosack wall produces a highly effective barrier to flood water. But that's only one benefit.
The Flood Barrier and Sand Bags each weigh just a kilo. Being so light they are fast and easy to handle and place into key positions when flooding threatens. The HydroSack© allows a controlled spread which prevents the contents from moving from side to side due to its unique 3-section structure.
HydroSnake Sandbags and Flood Barrier
The HydroSack® Flood Barrier and Sand Bags are a water-reactive temporary flood barrier for low-level flooding, water redirection and pollution control, constructed from a non-woven outer material with a super absorbent core. The superabsorbent core of the Flood Barrier and Sand Bags contain a mixture of superabsorbent polymer (SAP) and wood pulp. Before use, the HydroSnake® Flood Barrier and Sand Bags weigh less than 0.5kg, but once it comes into contact with water the Flood Barrier and Sand Bags can then be used to redirect floodwater or non-corrosive chemicals and pollutants.
