Big Bags USA flood control systems and flood barrier systems provide lightening fast flood protection at a fraction of the cost. One system is 36” wide, 15’ long, and 40” tall. One, five bag system, can be placed and filled by two men in less than 10 minutes. That’s equal to 15 lineal foot every ten minutes. There is no sandbag deployment method that equals the speed in which a Big Bags USA barrier can be placed. Big Bags USA has earned its’ rank in the Top Ten Flood Barriers list.
Big Bags USA flood control systems can handle the highest demands at a fraction of the costs normally associated with rapid deployed systems.
Each filled flood barrier consists of five connected heavy-duty cubic yard bags. The barriers can be connected to form one contiguous line of any length. The barrier systems can also be stacked to achieve vertical height.
Big Bags USA flood barriers can be filled using many different types of equipment such as: skid steers, back hoes, front end loader, conveyor belt trucks, crane booms, and even cement mixers when using a slurry. Simple, fast, deployment is what makes Big Bags USA barriers an industry leader.
Each flood barrier is 3’ wide, 15’ long, and 40” tall. A single barrier is equal to over 750 regular sand-bags. The flood barrier systems protecting a highway in this photo were set up in just minutes.
Our flood barriers are packaged seven systems per pallet. That’s 105 linear foot of protection that can be easily stockpiled. All Flood Control Mitigation plans should include an easily stored product like Big Bags USA.
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 2,200 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. Try to find another flood control product that stands the test of time as well as Big Bags USA.
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 7-10 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.
