Small woven polypropylene bags and bulk bags can be used for sand bags in many applications and are often filled with sand or soil. Filled sandbags 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 sandbags are available for the following applications:
- Flood Control
- Erosion Control
- Oil Field Drilling
- Military Fortification
- Construction Sites
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. Often times UV inhibitor is not needed if the bags will only be used temporarily or if they are eventually buried, as is the case when used for pipeline.
If we don’t have the sandbags you need in stock, we can get them for no additional cost, and we have the ability to ship immediately from our warehouses. 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.”
