Flood Stop TransportFLOOD CONTROL LEVEE ENHANCEMENT
 
The FLOOD STOP water-filled tube system can be added to the crest of existing levees to increase their effective height.
  • A three-tube system, configured in a pyramid shape, can add up to 36 inches of height to the levee
  • The effective water retention is an additional 30 inches
  • A six-tube configuration will add 50 inches to the levee height, and 3 feet or more of additional water flood protection
A Flood Stop exclusive EROSION CONTROL SKIRT can be added to the offshore side, bottom tube, to aid in protecting the levee from erosion and damage from water
saturation and subsidence.
 

Flood Stop Set-Up

Features Of Flood Stop Barriers:
  • Lightweight: Less than 1% of the weight of sandbags relative to height of the dike
  • Durable: Made of heavy coated, reinforced materials that are resistant to abrasion, puncture and tearing
  • Fast Set-Up: Two people can erect 400 linear feet per hour *(3-tube)
  • Stable: An easy tube interconnection system makes all segments work as one against the buildup of water pressure
  • Flexible: Easily contours to dips or rises in the levee. Can be curved when needed. Seals equally well on soil, concrete, or gras
  • Compact/Portable: Does not require a lot of storage or shipping space
