Sand Bags (Empty or Filled)
Sandbags are made of hessian or woven polypropylene that is filled with sand or soil and used for such purposes as flood control and fortification. Sandbags are an excellent choice for the construction of levees, berms, dikes, and barricades for erosion control, floodwalls, and traffic control used for supporting highway signage. Sandbags may be used flooding during emergencies when rivers threaten to over-flood, or a levee or dike is damaged. Quick action and bags on-hand could save countless Pounds in personal and property damage.
WHEN CAN SANDBAGS BE USED?
The use of sandbags is a simple, but effective way to prevent or reduce flood water damage. Properly filled and placed sandbags can act as a barrier to divert moving water around, instead of through, buildings. Sandbag construction does not guarantee a water-tight seal but is satisfactory for use in most situations. Sandbags are also used successfully to prevent over-topping of streams with levees, and for diverting current flows to specific areas.
Sandbags alone should not be relied on to keep water outside a building. Using plastic / wooden boards, scaffolding boards, or polythene sheeting, tarpaulins with sandbags. To form a sandbag wall, place bags tightly against one another to form the first layer of defense. Stagger the second and subsequent layers of bags, much like the pattern of brick wall pattern effect.
Sandbags, when properly filled and placed, will redirect storm and debris flows away from property improvements and also often used for garden landscaping ponds.
