FloodSax® - the modern sandbag!
Complete Flood Protection - FloodSax Instant Sand Bags protect against floods, burst-pipes – any water hazard.
FloodSax® modern, lightweight sandbags - harness the immense power of water to stop floods.
• Flood Protection 24% more cost effective than traditional sandbags
• Flooding claims are THIRTY TIMES more costly than burglary
• The greatest flood-risk months are starting. So you’re wise to act NOW.
Imagine how you feel as water floods in, threatening everything … the soul-destroying, depressing, sight of what you’ve worked hard for - ruined.
Yet in minutes FLOODSAX instant sandbags can dam that flood. They are so reliable that hundreds of businesses, emergency services and local authorities use them as an alternative to sand bags for their Flood Defence – including the Fire Service and Police.
What are FloodSax?
They’re a new kind of Flood Defence System that acts in minutes – and replaces unwieldy sandbags.
They do what sandbags do – but they’re like pillow-cases full of hundreds of absorbent crystals that weigh no more than half a pint of milk.
Even a child can lift one when they’re empty - they weigh only 0.2kg.
Yet in under 5 minutes from scratch they’re ready – to give you more protection than a sandbag.
They have been tested by the British Army. One army report concluded they are “comparable, if not slightly superior, to the standard sandbag.’’
You can fit 20 FloodSax® in a box – they’re ready in minutes to keep flood water out of your business or home.
They last for 5 years while stored and once expanded remain effective for up to 8 weeks.
The semi-porous inner liner contains hundreds of absorbent crystals which absorb water to 90% capacity in just 3 minutes. Once the water is in there, it stays there and the bags act just like sandbags to keep floods at bay. They are cleverly designed so they mould into doorways to keep floodwater out.
FloodSax® Instant Sandbags are environmentally friendly
The FloodSax® is bio-degradable so it can be sent to local landfill. They last far longer than traditional sandbags.
- They absorb more, so you need less
- More convenient – small, easy to store
- Light and easy to carry
They absorb water to act just like sandbags, but don't have to be filled with heavy sand.
The bags can be folded and take up a tiny amount of storage space compared to sandbags which are heavy, unwieldy and deteriorate if stored for a long time. The floodbags weigh hardly anything which solves any health and safety issues in terms of handling dead weights such as traditional sandbags.
Complete Flood Protection
FloodSax Instant Sand bags protect against floods, burst-pipes – any water hazard.
Simply immerse the floodbags in water at the scene and their semi-porous inner liner has hundreds of absorbent crystals which retain the water against tremendous pressure.
Toilet sealer - what a fab product!
To prevent flood water from coming up through a downstairs toilet, just roll a dry FloodSax® and gently push into the toilet. The FloodSax® will expand and seal the toilet, and will not crack the porcelain.
Long lasting and bio-degradable
The bags, which come in two sizes, last for 5 years while stored and once inflated at the scene stay inflated for up to 8 weeks. They are UK-manufactured and tested and are ideal for areas vulnerable to flash floods. They are biodegradable so can be disposed of in landfill sites.
How do FloodSax® work?
FloodSax® absorb water to become taut and puncture–proof within five minutes. Once the water is in there, it stays in 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.
They are incredibly quick to fill with water and their semi-porous inner liner has hundreds of absorbent crystals which retain the water against tremendous pressure.
How do I know FloodSax® will do the job?
The manufacturers have put the prototypes through tough tests before the finished version has been made - they have already proved themselves in action.
How long will FloodSax® last when stored?
FloodSax® last for 5 years while stored and once expanded at the scene remain effective for up to 3 months. They are UK–manufactured and tested and are ideal for areas vulnerable to flash floods.
Sandbags have to be replaced regularly which costs many thousands of pounds for big companies and local authorities who need palletised sandbags ready all year round for any emergency.
What happens when I've finished with my FloodSax®?
FloodSax® are biodegradable and so can be disposed of in landfill sites. When you want to move the FloodSax, you can even make them lighter by simply adding table salt to the surface of the material - this will reduce the weight of the bag by up to 50%.
Who should have them?
Every home and business is potentially at risk from floods – even if it is a burst pipe. FloodSax® can be used anywhere from professional offices to building sites and from ground–floor flats to the top of skyscrapers.
