Our flood barriers are packaged seven systems per pallet. One person can easily carry an empty flood barrier system, open and deploy the system, and then manipulate them to form any desired shape including arcs or right angles to encircle a building. In the photo gallery to the right you can see our flood barriers protecting a railroad track.
Our flood barrier easily conforms to railroad tracks, tops of levees, streets, hillsides, over sewer drains and any other uneven topography. Big Bags USA barriers are rated for over 2, hours of direct sunlight. Our sand-filled demonstration systems displayed outside of the factory remain uncompromised after 10 years of exposure to the elements.
Indoor shelf life is rated at over 50 years. In the gallery to the left you can see our flood barrier systems on a pallet awaiting deployment to protect a factory. Next, the flood barriers are placed in a staging area ready for deployment by an assistant that directs a crane, using our patented spreader bar, to lift the filled flood barriers onto a flatbed.
Once load-ed onto a flatbed the ton barrier system can be lifted and stacked in a pyramid formation. Pyramid stacking requires an extra row on the bottom for every row you place to achieve vertical height. The flexibility of the barrier allows the product to be used on any an all surfaces without the need for trenching or leveling to get a water-tight seal.
Not only is the bag re-usable, the sand can be kept in the bags and stored in a ware-house for the next use. Systems can be re-used. Flood barrier systems can be set up in 2 minutes and filled in the same amount of time, thus within 10 minutes a 5 bag system can be set-up and filled in position, the equivalent of sandbags.
Big Bags USA flood barrier systems are easily filled to top or near top of bags height. The flood barrier can be filled with a loader, excavator, crane and bucket or a cement mixer. Big Bags USA has a life span of 25 years when stored inside. Big Bags USA flood barrier can have a life of up to 4 years when deployed, depending on conditions. Direct sunlight, over extended time will weaken the polypropylene material. If the sandbags show signs of weakening after extended time under sunlight when lifted by straps, then the sandbags should be lifted by loader shovel from beneath for removal.
There are many advantages of these systems. The main advantage is the lack of labor involved with assembly and filling. The second advantage is the speed with which you can protect an area from flooding. The third would be the cost savings compared to any other flood protection product available.
It depends on the size of the order, but typically it will take 5 to 7 business days delivered to your destination. They can be emptied either on-site or lifted individually by forklift or pay loader.
The sandbags are dumped by placing individual sandbags into a pay-loader, lifting bucket feet, tilting bucket forward until the sandbags turn upside down and falls top down.
The sandbags can then either be lifted off the sand pile or will need the bucket to push or pull it to loosen the sandbags from the sand pile. If the flood barrier will be re-used, then a staging location must be available for washing and drying the sandbags. If sandbags are to be destroyed, they can be incinerated as there are no toxic chemicals used in the manufacturing.
Any number of systems can be connected together. Tightly woven utility loops for easy lifting and deployment Optional closed top Big Bags USA systems for submerging underwater. Often used for coffer dams. The highest in Ultra-Violet protection available.
