Use our flood barrier in pyramid formations to achieve vertical height..

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.
