Applications

Dikes & levees

The origin of floods can be from the overflow of rivers and canals when there is extreme rainfall or melting snow water. BoxBarrier can be used as a means to temporarily heighten a dike or shore to prevent flooding in an area.

 

Homes & businesses

Businesses and home owners can protect their property by installing the BoxBarrier flood barrier around it. BoxBarrier and a mobile pump can be stored efficiently in the property or close by.

Temporary basin

BoxBarrier can be used to create a (temporary) basin. The basin can be used to capture fresh/salt water or to capture (contaminated) water originating from dredged materials or from other (semi) solid materials.

BoxBarrier: Flood Defence System

BoxBarrier® is a very effective temporary flood defence system, which can be used to temporarily heighten the crest of a dike, or to make a temporary dam on flat terrain. This video shows you just how easy it is to install and its effectiveness at retaining water.

Designed for easy transport & export

BoxBarrier flood defence system can be easily stacked, enabling the efficient usage of all modes of transport.

For example, ten to twenty boxes can be transported in an average sized station wagon or in an ordinary car trailer. Larger quantities can be transported by large car trailers, trucks or by container. The boxes can also be easily exported around the world.

 

"The BoxBarriers were quickly put into position, when you compare this with the conventional sandbags. The advantages of the system are mainly due to the limited time required to construct the temporary barrier, the limited required storage area and the easyness to handle the units (in advantage of safety, health and welfare).”
