Flood Damage Limitation
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.
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.
