Flooding Prevention Products

When it comes to flooding protection products, municipalities, state and federal agencies, farmers, and private landowners turn to durable woven polypropylene sandbags and bulk bags to keep the rising waters at bay. With a higher level of durability than traditional burlap sandbag options, woven poly sandbags are treated for UV exposure, making then virtually permanent with little maintenance. When filled to full capacity with 40+ lbs of sand, these commercial-grade polypropylene sandbags offer the strongest material to construct flood control barriers, trenches, berms, and levees.

Woven Polypropylene Bulk Bags

For large spaces of land, with the potential to face high powered forces, a larger solution might be what’s needed to keep communities and private property safe. Often used to create larger barriers next to lakes, oceans and rivers, a woven polypropylene bulk container filled with sand can help provide the added weight needed to withstand these strong forces in flooding conditions. These bags are also leveraged to block storm drains that are prone to back up when flooding occurs in populated areas and rural neighborhoods.
