FloodSax is operating during November’s coronavirus lockdown as an essential frontline service and can be contacted 24 hours a day on 01484 641009.
Our award-winning alternative sandbags are also available through branches of Travis Perkins which is remaining open (to find your nearest store go to https://www.travisperkins.co.uk/branch-locator) or through FloodSax Direct (http://www.floodsaxdirect.com/).
FloodSax were devised by Richard Bailey, managing director of Yorkshire-based Environmental Defence Systems Ltd, and more than 2.5 million have now been sold worldwide.
Richard said: “It’s vital people have the peace of mind they can get protection from the risk of flooding which can happen any time day or night … but they have to do it themselves.
“Many home and business owners don’t realise that councils in the UK have no responsibility to provide sandbags and people are responsible for sorting out their own flood protection.
“Many councils now recommend our FloodSax alternative sandbag flood barriers for flood protection which are a flexible alternative to traditional sandbags that are space-saving to store and quick and easy to deploy.”
When FloodSax come into contact with water they absorb 20 litres which transforms them from being as light as a pillowcase to being more effective than traditional sandbags in just three minutes. They can even be deployed by the elderly and people with mobility problems which is why they have been endorsed by the National Disabled Fire Association.
