  • Reusable – simply dismantle, clean and store for the next event;
  • Repairable in place – does not require dismantling;
  • Small pack cube means easy storage and transport; 2 x 24ft barriers fit in the bed of a pickup truck;
  • Lower Cost of Ownership than competing systems of similar quality and significantly less than the cost of catastrophic damage to communities;
  • Eliminates need for special disposal of contaminated sandbags;
  • Patents in 32 countries (including US and Canada).

Catastrophic failure of Critical Infrastructure affects hundreds of thousands outside the flooded areas:

  • Power and water treatment plants, hospitals, highways, fuel distribution, chemical plants etc.
  • Recovery and repair take a long time and the costs are extremely high.
  • Federal, State and Municipal governments have a mandate to protect public assets.
  • Efforts to deploy and remove sandbag defences are very costly, labour intensive and unsustainable:
  • Thousands of volunteers required to help to fill sandbags and dispose of them after the event.
  • The costs of repair and recovery from flood damage are huge:
  • Governments have earmarked billions of dollars to protect against, and recover from, flooding.
