About Us


Our President and founder, Everett "Buzz" Waid, first developed TrapBag® in 2004 , after Hurricane Charlie. He saw the damage left behind in the wake of the storm, as well as the ineffectiveness of traditional flood control systems and began developing an all-around better alternative. By 2010 the first TrapBag® barrier was manufactured and by July of the next year over 24 miles of our flood barrier were installed.

TrapBag® was originally intended to function as an easily installed flood control barrier designed to provide a quick and easy way to fight flash floods. Besides acting as an alternative to sandbags, many other uses for our barrier bags have been discovered, including Gravity Retaining Walls, MSE walls, check dam, and coastal erosion barrier. A full list of possible uses for the TrapBag® barrier system can be found under the solutions tab above.

We have been featured in the New York Times, New Jersey News, Fox News, The Gazette, and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority publications as well as the Weather Channel.
