Scott Rogener, the President of Parcor Materials Corp, saw first hand the difficulty of meeting customer needs for flood protection sandbags during the recent Hurricane Sandy emergency. Severe weather-related disasters not only create extremely high demand for water control products, but also cause normal distribution channels to be adversely affected. Conventional sandbag materials are not sufficient on their own to meet disaster response needs due to physical supply and distribution issues. Rogener realized that to effectively meet customer demands, Parcor needed to find a product to supplement traditional sandbags with an innovative solution. He found that product in FloodSax’s.sand-
The FloodSax sand-less sandbags 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 sand-less 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. FloodSax comes with a 5 year readiness guarantee from their sealed state.
Rogener sees FloodSax as an important addition to his growing product line. “Once I met the team from Floodsax, I knew that I made the correct decision. The FloodSax product speaks for itself. When FloodSax’s sand-less sandbags are demonstrated for anyone, the reaction is always the same enthusiastic – ‘Wow, I could have used those in Hurricane Sandy’. Parcor Materials Corp is thrilled to be a part of the FloodSax team”.
