Rahway, NJ (PRWEB) August 22, 2011

Survival Gear Source, LLC announced today the addition of a revolutionary product called FloodSax to their product line. FloodSax® is a self-activating sandless sandbag, a flood defense system for homeowners, business owners and governmental agencies. FloodSax uses a proprietary biodegradable polymer that absorbs water to form a sandless sandbag. Delivered as a flat one-pound sack, they absorb up to 45 pounds of fresh water in five minutes, forming a dense gel that blocks and redirects water, while forming to each other or adjacent structures for a tighter fit than traditional sandbags. Because they are stored dry, they are cleaner, lighter, more effective and easier to use in the places and times when sandbags are needed most.

Floods are the number one most common natural disaster in the United States, causing over 700 million dollars in damage in 2010 and most homeowners’ insurance does not cover flood damage, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA encourages home and business owner to prepare for floods in part by safeguarding your possessions and property.

“FloodSax are lightweight, compact, clean, and superior-engineered alternative to the mess and limitations of sandbagging,” said Angelo Polsinelli, Vice-President and General Manager of Floodsax Americas. “Once activated, they can be placed to mitigate and redirect floodwater. FloodSax are 100% biodegradable, but keep water at bay for three months, and have a guaranteed shelf life of five years when sealed in original vacuum pack.”

Compared with traditional sandbags, FloodSax feature several advantages:

·    FloodSax eliminate the need for storing and delivery of bags and loose sand. They can be stored cleanly in a home, garage or warehouse using only 20% of the space of traditional sandbags.
·    FloodSax weigh only one pound when dry, allowing virtually anyone to store, handle and place the bags as needed.
·    FloodSax expand and form to each other, doorways, walls or other objects forming a tighter seal than traditional sandbags.
