Hydrosnake & Hydrosack Temporary Flood Barriers & Flood Protection
The Hydrosnake & Hydrosnakes are a water-reactive temporary flood barriers for low level flooding, constructed from a non-woven outer material with a super absorbent core. The super absorbent core contains a mixture of super absorbent polymer and wood pulp. Before use, the hydrosnake and hydrosack weigh less than 0.5kg, but once they come into contact with water (absorption capacity up to 20 litres), it can be used to defend against, and redirect water. Each Hydrosnake measures up to 1.45m in length when activated, making it the ideal flood barrier for warehouse doors/shutters and domestic doorways. The Hydrosacks handles allow minimal contact and allow easy positioning of the barrier, making them an ideal replacement for the traditional sandbag in forming a flood protection barrier. After use the outer sack can be slit and the contents can be emptied into the earth without harmful effects.
