Long Sand-Filled Flood Fighting System
A fillable, multi-cell barrier system, designed for long-run applications that can be stacked to any height.
Harlow's Casino, MS. 7.5' of water for 31 days.
When filled with sand, PermaShield's patented trapezoid shape redirects lateral water pressure downward, holding back floodwaters and resisting rolling and sliding. Can be easily stacked to almost any height and sections can be strapped together with a 3000lb tensile strength nylon strap to build one continuous flood wall.
PermaShield has been rigorously tested by the USACE & ACES and is a proven stand-alone flood fighting barrier. The heavy duty, woven polypropylene coated fabric is highly resistant to damage from debris impacts and is resistant to contamination and seepage into the bag contents. If damage occurs, the design isolates damage to the impacted cell.
"In terms of price, effectiveness, and durability, this is a premier flood fighting product."
The trapezoid shape of PermaShield™ is engineered to hold back water, creating a download sealing pressure.
Each cell is made from heavy-duty 8 ounce woven polypropylene coated fabric, which allows it not to move under high pressure.
PermaShield™ can be stacked and layered to reach any height.
This system comes in 50' sections and can be joined together for long runs by 3,000 lb. tensile strength nylon strapping with metal D-rings.
PermaShield™ is proven to be watertight from seepage and contamination.
