Port-a-Bag Earth Bag Wall Barrier
Modular Containment Systems & Bulk Sandbag Alternatives
Port-a-Bag is an innovative earthbag wall and sandbag alternative that is low cost and highly efficient. Made from high strength textile, Port-a-Bags are pentagon shaped cells linked together in accordion type sections. GEI Works port-a-bag barrier bags provide a sustainable solution for use as a large retaining wall, gravity wall, flood barrier system, shoreline erosion barrier, temporary pond, and much more. Port-a-bag modular containment systems are available in 50 ft. long sections in 2 foot, 4 foot and 6 foot tall models, which can be stacked to your desired height. See the Port-A-Bag Product Flyer.
Port-a-Bag Barrier Advantages
Port-a-Bags can be installed by only 2 people with typical skid loader equipment (depending on your application and installation site). Sandbags are extremely tedious and require significant manpower to move and install, whereas this retaining wall option requires limited equipment and a few simple steps. Earth bag wall barrier bags are divided into independent pocket cells that retain integrity even if one cell fails. See specifications.
Long Term Cost Savings
This earthbag wall folds flat for low cost shipping and easy storage. Bags can be filled with dirt, sand, rocks, cement, or the media of your choice. Port-a-Bags last several years and will withstand extreme weather conditions as a flood barrier system or an erosion barrier for beach restoration.
The applications and uses for port-a-bag modular containment systems are virtually endless, but they are most popularly used as a flood barrier system. Fill the barrier bags with cement for use as a bulkhead wall, or as a gravity retaining wall along shorelines as an erosion barrier. Port-a-bag gravity wall barrier bags are quickly emerging as a premiere solution for beach restoration projects. Other common modular containment system applications include:
- Flood Barrier
- Bulkhead Wall
- Beach Erosion Barrier
- Beach Restoration Support
- Temporary Pond or Containment
- Earth Bag Retaining Wall or Gravity Wall
