DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES
FIGHTING WATER WITH WATER
Floodblock inflatable barriers are the perfect alternative to sandbags, aluminum barriers, dikes, and levees. They provide more benefits at a significantly lower cost and have unique features that set them clearly apart from traditional flood protection measures
The core mission of Floodblock is to use innovative engineered solutions to protect communities from the devastating impact that floods have on critical infrastructure, lifestyle and the economy.
Our unique approach to large scale flood prevention, cleanup, and control is simple yet extremely powerful. Fighting water with water, we turn the awesome power of nature against itself, using it to fill inflatable tubes with flood water in order to rapidly deploy robust barrier systems that can stretch over very long distances. This approach is not only more efficient than traditional flood control methods, such as sandbags and aluminum barriers, but it is also cost-effective.
Structural and geographic changes made to mitigate 100- and 500-year flood damages are not only cost-prohibitive, but they also require a great amount of time to implement. For this reason, many municipalities and private sector businesses choose temporary flood control protection. Our goal is to supply the private sector as well as local, State and Federal agencies with a range of high-performance mobile barrier systems so durable, yet so light and flexible, that they can serve both as temporary active flood control measures for rapid response to imminent threats, and as passive barriers that remain deployed over extended periods of time to protect against recurring floods.
Floodblock is dedicated to using water-filled barrier systems to help communities with a wide range of hydrologic and environmental issues, including:
