Flood Barrier Protection Wall
Alternatives to Sandbags and Other Flood Protection Systems
GEI Works’ flood barrier is an innovative and cost effective solution for flood control and protection. Use our barriers during disasters like flash floods, hurricanes, water surges, and mudslides as a superior large scale alternative to small sandbags and other flood protection products. There is no complicated installation process – simply unfold, line up, and fill!
The GEI Works flood barrier is quickly becoming an industry favorite for flood mitigation as an alternative to sandbags and other traditional flood walls. Install our bulk bag flood protection barrier around your property, along a riverbank, on a slope, or on any other vulnerable or potential flood risk areas.
For more information and specifications on our flood barrier bulk bags, see the FIBC Bulk Bags Overview.
Our flood barriers are often used as water diverters or flood protection barrier walls. Typical floodwalls are between 2.5 or 5.8 ft tall, depending on the bulk bag used, and can be stacked in a pyramid formation to reach your desired height. Our flood barrier bags fold compact for shipping and storage and are easy to unfold for installation. The reduced manpower and significant cost savings makes the flood defense wall the ideal small sandbag alternative for flood defense.
As an alternative, temporary form of protection, standard-sized sandbags can be used along banks, homes or businesses. They made using either a high UV poly or burlap material. These strong materials work to keep sand contained, while simultaneously controlling or limiting the flow of water. Need other emergency supplies? Check out our Emergency Supplies Preparation page.
Sustainable Safety and Protection – Artificial Levees and Check Dams
The flood protection system walls can also be used as a temporary artificial levee to protect land from flash floods and rising water levels. Levees prevent rivers and other water bodies from flooding cities and protected areas during a storm surge, flash flood or emergency situation. The flood barrier can also be installed as a check dam system to reduce water momentum and force along a slope. This flood protection barrier can additionally be used for mud slide protection and redirection.
Unfold and Fill: Deployment and Installation
The barrier is a bulk bag flood defense product. This means there is no difficult installation process: simply line the bags together along the flood wall route and fill with sand, gravel, crushed stone, or other equivalent material. The flood bags can also be stacked for increased protection from floods and more extreme water demands. For a more permanent flood protection barrier, cement can be used as a filler.
Other Barrier Applications: Containment and Shoreline Bulkheads
This product is not only an easy-to-use flood barrier, but also a cost effective containment solution.
