Issue

Flood hazard

An increased flood hazard because the flood defence does not meet the requirements and/or due to extreme conditions.

If, because of external factors, water safety cannot be guaranteed temporarily, or there is no temporary water storage available, one has to act quickly. In a short amount of time, a flood defense construction will have to be placed to keep the hinterland from flooding.

Solution

TrapBag

Pyramid-shaped big bags which are made of 30 linked parts. It is possible to place them quickly by pulling them from the pallets like an accordeon. Hard carbon fiber partitions are used to keep them high and open. They can be filled with either sand or water through loose bags inside. These bags are available in the following sizes (in height): 60 cm, 120 cm and 180 cm.
