The Full Story of FloodSax

Introducing Flood Protection with Sandless Sandbags

Revolutionary one-pound biodegradable sandless sandbag can be stored easily and deployed by virtually anyone to form an effective barrier to floodwaters

FloodSax Americas, LLC introduced the revolutionary FloodSax self-activating sandless sandbag flood defense system for homeowners, business owners and governmental agencies in the United States. 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 most needed.

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 Adam Eckstein Sales Manager of FloodSax Americas. “Once activated, FloodSax can be placed to mitigate and redirect floodwater. FloodSax are 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 sandless sandbags are the perfect alternative to traditional sandbags. Save money on storage, and save time and effort to place and protect your assets with FloodSax biodegradable polymer bags.
