About TrapBag

Over 16 years of experience as Flood and Erosion Protection Experts

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 2011 over 24 miles of our flood barriers were installed. To date, an excess of 300 miles have been installed around the world.

What is TrapBag? 

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 beach erosion, mudslides, storm surges, levee breaching, cofferdams, gravity walls, MSE walls, and more. 

Where can TrapBags be shipped?

TrapBag® is an international company based in the USA. We can respond immediately to supply and deploy TrapBag® where & when needed. TrapBags® can be shipped anywhere globally.

How do TrapBags work?

TrapBag® is a low cost, rapid deploy flood and erosion control barrier bag similar to, yet superior than, conventional sandbags. Our bags are designed to protect life and property from natural disasters such as flash flooding, mudslides, mud flows, levee breaches and storm surge. TrapBag® is versatile and may be used for other kinds of protection from security barriers to storm-water control.
