Providing protection from the unpredictable British weather, we deliver pre-filled sandbags to assist in flood prevention to your home or workplace. Saving time, money and backbreaking work filling empty bags, our ready filled heavy duty sand bags are supplied stacked on pallets.
The bags are manufactured to the technical specification of British Standard BS1214 and have been coated in a copper-based rot proofing treatment which is ideal for sandbagging. In order to meet British Standard BS1214:1977 sandbags must be manufactured to meet minimum requirements in many areas, which include:
Strength of Materials
Ready-filled sandbags are delivered on a non-returnable pallet and are part-filled with approx. 15-20kg of sand, so care should be taken when lifting.
Our sandbags have been used to secure lighting rigs and bouncy castles, for flood protection, military re-enactments, boundary fencing and more.
Sand bags should not be over-filled as the sand should have room in the bag to distribute and mould into the other stacked bags; if the bags are filled with too much sand this can cause gaps in the wall, which if using for flood prevention will make the barrier ineffective. A heavier duty jute and rot-proofing treatment is used in the manufacture of these sandbags to extend the life compared to standard jute bags, however as with all bags they can begin to degrade when wet. This type of sandbag is currently used by the British Army to meet their sandbag requirements.
