About FloodSax®Direct
Floodsax® - the innovative, convenient, easy-to-use alternative to sandbags for flood and spill management
FloodSax®, the innovative self-inflating flood defence system is set to revolutionise the way we control damage due to flooding.

20 FloodSax® can be stored in a box and can be deployed in minutes to protect your business or home from flood water.

FloodSax® are used as an alternative to traditional sandbags or Flood Bags, and allow everyone to prepare for Flooding.

A box of 20 Floodsax is the equivalent of a pallet of 20 sandbags. Therefore much easier to store as they are far smaller and lighter.

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 designed so they mould into doorways to keep floodwater out.

  • Floodsax® are similar in weight and texture to a pillow whilst dry, but are as tough and heavy as sandbags within minutes.
  • Easy storage means they are ready for action anytime, any place, anywhere.
  • Floodsax are exceptionally tough and can stop a powerful torrent of water in its tracks.
  • Designed so the frail and elderly can deploy them in minutes, they are endorsed by the National Disabled Fire Association, which supports disabled people working in the fire service and the wider communities in which they serve.

Floodsax are designed to control flood damage and can buy you sufficient time to move your loved ones and valuable possessions to safety.


FloodSax® are ideal for any emergency
- not just for floods. Stops water in its tracks!
