SLAMdam is a temporary flood defender. Which can easily be constructed by two people as soon as there is a danger of flooding. SLAMDAM is the solution for creating a temporary dam quickly and In the event of flooding or high water or, for example, when holding back or retaining contaminated fire extinguishing water, a quick and simple solution is always needed. SLAMDAM has been designed especially for these situations. The SLAMDAM excels in its simplicity. The highly stretchable EPDM material forms the basis for two connected compartments - by means of a specially developed membrane - that have to be filled with water simultaneously. This will create a very solid emergency dam.
When water exerts external pressure on the SLAMDAM , the compartment under stress is pushed 'slightly' upwards, whereupon the second compartment 'slots in', thereby ensuring the requisite counterpressure. This counteracts a lever-effect. Moreover, this will enable the SLAMDAM to provide maximum resistance to pressure exerted by high water levels.
A SLAMDAM can be erected by two people, using good pumps. When every second counts ...
- Roll out the SLAMDAM®
- Position the SLAMDAM® with 2 cm of overlap
- Fill the SLAMDAM® with water
- Seal the caps
- The water barrier is ready!
Why SLAMDAM© Just a few good reasons:
Easy-to-handle boxes and simple set-up ensure rapid deployability in cases of emergency.
The essential link, in fact, in emergency situations for Water Authorities, Fire Departments, the Department of Waterways and Public Works and disaster specialists.
It takes only 2 people one hour to build a 100-meter emergency dam.
A flexibly deployable solution for keeping to a minimum the damages to a premises due to flooding.
The effective basis for inundation of (agricultural) lands but also, for example, for the creation of temporary basins.
