The Flood Guard range are used as an alternative to traditional sandbags or flood bags, to allow everyone to prepare for flooding. The semi-porous inner liner contains hundreds of absorbent crystals which absorb water to 90% capacity in just 3 minutes. Once the water is in there, it stays there and the bags act just like sandbags to keep floods at bay.
When dry in their natural state and not inflated they are lightweight and easy to transport, which means they can be applied to any area by a child or elderly person. The two most popular applications for these products are a preventative measure against flooding or a divertive measure to direct safe and unobstructive passage of water away from an area into a storm drain.
