Flooding is the number one natural disaster resulting in significant human fatilities as well as countless losses of both pets and livestock every year. Flooding accounts for billions of dollars in property damages every year. With flood preparation and emergency flood response being such a time sensitive need, the Sandmaster's unsurpassed efficiency in the rapid filling and placement of sand bags allows for extremely quick construction of both permanant and temporary berms for flood control and protection of property.

In areas where sand is not readily avialable, the SandMaster Series by Barrier Systems LLC can also utilize locally available materials such as gravel, cinder or rocky soil, wet or dry. The custom made SandMaster bags are designed to withstand the weight of the material that builds up on the implement which then serves as a force to fill the bags to capacity.

The SandMaster has a military application as sand bags are heavily utilized to fortify front line military operations and protect our troops.
