FloodSax are transformed from being as light as a pillowcase to become better than traditional sandbags in around three minutes.
To do that, all you need to do is add water and watch them miraculously expand.
The semi-porous inner liner within FloodSax contains a special gelling polymer which absorbs the water to become taut.
They can be expanded in water in a bath, sink, bucket, hosepipe or even the floodwater itself. 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.
Before they are activated FloodSax are incredibly lightweight, amazingly weighing just 7 ounces yet once expanded they are strong enough to stop a powerful torrent of water in its tracks.
They can be deployed outside as a barrier to prevent floodwater from getting into homes or business.
And they can be used inside to soak up leaks and spills in hard to reach places such as beneath faulty boilers, radiators and pipes.
The key thing is they SAVE in every sense of the word.
When flooding strikes it’s powerful enough to send water back up into homes from sewers, flooding bathrooms with filthy water. Just one FloodSax popped down the toilet prevents this.
Suffering from flooding is as miserable and traumatic experience as you’re likely to suffer in life. Floodwater causes immense damage, forcing people out of their homes for months while they dry out and then face extensive repair work and an incredible amount of hassle. FloodSax can prevent all this by protecting your doors and air vents to stop the floodwater from getting in.
