Our innovative FloodSax inhibit floodwater from entering homes, shops and businesses. They are also suitable for soaking up leaks and spills inside a building or in areas that are particularly difficult to reach such as underneath faulty radiators or boilers.
A row of FloodSax will keep around 20cms (8 inches) of water out and are used worldwide by emergency services, environmental agencies, facilities management companies and emergency planning managers as an effective and rapid response to flood defence, flood mitigation and flood prevention.
This self-inflating product expands by absorbing the liquid to become taut within three minutes, therefore making it ideal for a range of flood protection measures including liquid diversion and providing a robust barrier for doors and entrances. Each bag will absorb up to 22 litres of water. Once activated, FloodSax will remain inflated for at least 7 days. It will stay activated for 12 weeks if in contact with a liquid and will not leak.

Supplied in packs of 5, FloodSax are extremely user-friendly as each standard bag weighs just 0.2kg (7 ounces) prior to expansion. This means they can be used by people who would not ordinarily be able to lift conventional sandbags. Large quantities of FloodSax can be transported to the scene by one person in a car or a van. Alternatively, they can be easily stored on site and vacuum-packed to save even more space.
FloodSax are also beneficial to the environment as they don’t require sand - one of the earth’s natural resources. After they’ve been used, they can be simply and easily disposed of swiftly in landfill sites where they will decompose over time. In comparison, a typical sandbag is often messy to clean up after the floodwater has subsided.
