TrapBag® is a series of pentagon-shaped bags that are sloped on one side, vertical on the opposite side, and open at the top for filling. Each of the cells are connected side by side like an accordion, each cell has a common wall with the next cell, and are collapsed during storage and deployment. The cells are made of high-strength textile. Each of the cells are self-contained yet rely on the next cell for added strength. If one of the cells is compromised, it will not affect the rest of the flood barrier, which will remain standing strong. TrapBag® Barriers can be filled with sand, washed gravel, or concrete.
TrapBag® Flood Barriers uses 40% less fill material than a stacked sandbag wall, but more importantly one 100 foot section of 4 foot high TrapBag® replaces approximately 8,000 sandbags making TrapBag® Flood Barriers an excellent alternative to small and large sandbags.
