Innovative flood protection company, FloodSax, is a featured vendor at this year’s IAEM 60th Annual Conference & EMEX 2012 held in Orlando, Florida, from October 26, 2012, through November 1, 2012. The pending assault by Hurricane Sandy on the northeastern coastline has given this annual conference and trade show a special urgency, as Emergency Managers from that area of the country prepare to deal with water protection and clean-up issues associated with this massive “Frankenstorm” hitting huge metropolitan areas. It is anticipated that FloodSax will take the lead in providing stricken areas with their revolutionary sandless sandbags as a first line of defense from flooding, and as the top water clean-up product on the market.
Emergency Mangers at the conference have been appreciative and excited by the response of FloodSax to the pending emergency. The company has deployed a large quantity of FloodSax bags, and is working around the clock to meet customer needs at the conference. Individuals in the hurricane target zone, or at the IAEM Conference, are urged to call Adam Eckstein, the FloodSax Americas Sales Manager, at (561) 702-2666, to have their water protection needs handled immediately and efficiently through the FloodSax Distribution Network.
FloodSax products (floodsax.us.com) were instrumental in protecting property and lives when Hurricane Isaac devastated the Gulf Coast, and were used extensively in regional clean-up efforts. The FloodSax bags act like traditional sandbags, but are much easier to deploy and use. FloodSax bags look like flat pillow cases until put into action, and then their amazing water protection properties give their customers unmatched floodwater protection The FloodSax bags are so light that thousands can be transported in vans, and deployment is so easy that it can be done in half the time of traditional flood control methods.
The semi-porous inner liner within FloodSax contains gelling polymer which absorbs water to become taut and full in just over 3 minutes (100% activated in 5 minutes). Once the water is absorbed by the FloodSax bags, it stays there and the bags act just like sandbags to keep floods at bay. The sandless bags are designed to mould together into an effective pliable flood shield that keeps floodwater out.
After the flood danger has passed, FloodSax are environmentally friendly and can be disposed of in traditional landfills. This makes them ideal for use in clean-up efforts. FloodSax bags work fast, and the amazing product can absorb up to 45 gallons of water in 5 minutes.
There is no other product on the market that can begin to compare with the ease, efficiency and effectiveness of FloodSax flood control products. When you need quick damage control, nothing can beat a FloodSax bag for protection and/or absorption cleanup at affordable prices.
