Sandbags are an ideal solution when it comes to soil erosion protection, and diverting floodwaters away from sensitive installations or homes. Especially where there is a lack of rock for gabion installations, soil/sand filled bags can be stacked together quickly using locally available sand to protect your home or river bank in times of excessive flooding and thundershowers. .Sandbags prevent flooding and soil erosion, due to one simple fact, that sand, stone and soil being heavier than water, are not easily washed away in times of river floods.
Sandbags for dykes and berms should only be filled half full, as overfilled bags are less effective, and they can then be stacked together to hold down the soil and divert lager water flows away from the home or installation, kindly contact for more information.
The 500 x 800mm Bidim A4 bags provide an economical alternative to reduce the volume of hand-packed stone required for Gabion installations. The Bidim A4 bags are filled with insitu soil, sealed, placed into the non-exposed section of the gabion and compacted. A narrow layer of hand – packed stone is placed along the exposed surfaces, as the Bidim material should not be exposed.
