WHY CHOOSE US?
Sandbags are far from being the optimal solution to flooding. They are very inefficient and particularly vulnerable to collapse and seepage. Floodblock barriers are not. Once the inflatable tubes are filled with water, they form a solid physical barrier that is stable and remains pinned to the ground by the sheer force of gravity. A special membrane can be attached to the base of the Floodblock barrier for added stability and to further reduce the risk of seepage.
• Floodblock barriers are the only viable option in emergencies
Constructing dikes, levees, and sandbag barricades are complicated, labor-intensive, and require a considerable lead time to complete. By contrast, Floodblock barriers are light, mobile, and easy to install. They can be quickly transported to a location and rapidly deployed in response to an emergency flood situation by a limited crew. Typically, 2 to 3 people can quickly deploy over half a mile of barrier in roughly 4 hours and fill it with water from a single access point, making it possible to rapidly protect large geographic areas on short notice before flooding occurs.
• Floodblock barriers provide maximum operational flexibility
Floodblock barriers are made from an extremely tough but flexible material. They can, therefore, be deployed in a straight linear fashion, bend on a range of angles to avoid obstacles on the ground, or form a circular pattern to create a defensive perimeter around a designated area. Because Floodblock barriers are modular, they can be attached end to end and extended indefinitely to provide flood protection over vast distances. Individual segments can also be emptied and moved to a new location as needed to respond to changing circumstances. They can be deployed on virtually any terrain type, including grass, sand, asphalt, or concrete, and follow the contours of the land, making it easier to protect areas with uneven topography.
• Floodblock barriers are more versatile than conventional methods
Floodblock barriers are incredibly versatile. They can not only be used independently to prevent flooding but can also serve to buttress existing flood protection structures such as dikes and levees. Floodblock barriers can even be deployed after a flood has occurred to isolate inundated areas, pump water out, and speed up drainage and recovery.
• Floodblock barriers deliver the most competitive & cost-effective solution
The cost of damage caused by flooding to the economy and critical infrastructure is truly staggering. The financial costs associated with building protective dikes, levees, and sandbag barricades are also considerable. Floodblock mobile barriers offer cost-effective solutions by providing the highest level of flood protection at the most competitive prices.
