Small woven polypropylene bags and bulk bags can be used as erosion control bags or flood control bags. They are often filled with sand or soil. Filled erosion control bags have the right weight and dimensions to create an interlocked wall, similar to brickwork. They are often used in emergencies, such as rivers overflowing, hurricane flooding, and levee damage. These sand bags are available for the following applications:

Erosion control bags are available with or without UV inhibitor. If the bags are only used temporarily or eventually buried, a UV inhibitor isn't necessary - such as use with pipelines.
If we don’t have the bulk sand bags you need in stock, we can get them for no additional cost, and we have the ability to ship immediately from our warehouses in the case of emergencies. We are able to fill large orders in a very timely manner and can customize sizes, available with or without ties.
“After major storm damage in 2014, we faced an emergency and needed FIBC bags quickly. The folks at Global-Pak not only answered all of our questions, they had bags shipped next day, and were a huge help to us protecting our shoreline property on Lake Superior. We've been with Global-Pak ever since and continue to receive first-rate service, guiding us toward long-term, optimized solutions. I recommend them 100% with no hesitation whatsoever.”
