  •     Easy to store and can be vacuumed-packed to save even more room.
  •     Always there for peace of mind. No panic to buy sandbags if a flood is forecast.
  •     Can be expanded in water right next to where you need them and stay taut until flood subsides.
  •     Lightweight before they are used with the standard bag weighing just 0.2kg (7 ounces) so can be used by people who would not be able to   lift sandbags.
  •     Thousands can be quickly transported in a van, saving on fuel, wages and manpower.
  •     Can be stored in small depots around the area, not one huge central store so can be taken even more quickly to the scene.
  •     One can be expanded and put down the toilet to block it from filthy water being forced up by the floodwater backing up through the drains and sewer.
  •     FloodSax® don't need sand - one of the earth’s natural resources - and so saves the environment


  • Must be replaced regularly costing thousands of pounds for big companies and local authorities that need palletised sandbags ready all year round for any emergency.
  • Can deteriorate if stored for a long time, especially in cold, damp warehouses.
  • Exceptionally unwieldy to lift and handle with all kinds of health, safety and manual handling technique problems for staff who have to use them at businesses.
  • Messy with the sand easily washed out and adding to all the damage if they burst.
  • Difficult and expensive to transport anywhere due to their weight. One box of 20 FloodSax® is equal to 20 sandbags on a pallet.
  • Need a lot of people to move any number of sandbags anywhere
