Flood Protection

Defencellâ„¢ Flood Walls are an efficient and highly effective flood barrier alternative to sandbags. Lightweight and stack-able, Defencell Flood Walls are designed as water containment barriers to help first responders construct flood protection much faster than traditional sandbag methods. Tested by the U. S. Army Corp of Engineers, Defencell Flood Wall significantly outperformed sand bags because:

  • FASTER INSTALLATION

  • LESS WATER SEEPAGE

  • BETTER OVERALL SYSTEM ENDURANCE

The Defencell textile is porous ensuring no build-up of water and the flow-through of water or moisture also improves compaction, leading to greater performance.

Defencell Flood Walls are engineered specific to provide

  • Flexible design and contours to adapt to rugged terrain

  • Ease of transportation – lightweight and compact for remote installation

During the spring floods of 2011, Defencell Flood Walls were employed to defend municipalities along the flood zones from Canada down the Mississippi River to Louisiana.
