Erosion occurs when any force (terrestrial, aquatic, or human) leads to the destruction of soil, cliffs, coasts or other natural landscape features.

TrapBag® products can be a solution for many types of erosion. TrapBag® is a low cost, rapid deploy erosion control barrier bag similar to, yet superior than, conventional sandbags.

Flood Protection

Floods can be caused by many different factors: heavy rainfall, highly accelerated snowmelt, hurricanes, severe winds over water, unusually high tides, tsunamis, failures of dams, levees, dikes, retention basins or other structures that retain water. Complete cities, city areas or private property owners can install TrapBag® Flood Barriers for creating temporary or semi-permanent flood protection against these type of flood events.

Mudslide Protection

Mudslides, also known as debris flows, are a serious problem for people living in areas with large hills and mountains, have caused billions of dollars in damages, and taken thousands of lives across the world. A well positioned TrapBag® barrier system will redirect these mountain floods and mudflows to avoid unnecessary damage to property and residents that would otherwise be in danger.

TrapBags are rapidly deployable in an emergency situation. When large spills happen it is usually an emergency and needs to be contained ASAP, which is why TrapBags are the best solution. They can be deployed very rapidly. You simply pull the bags out and fill them, and you’ll quickly have a system in place to control the large spill.

River Stabilization

A major key to protecting your river property is to maintain, stabilize, and repair your riverbank. This river edge is the bulwark that stands in the soil and prevents your property from washing away. It is an essential part of the whole river ecosystem. The TrapBag® barrier system can be applied to stabilize the riverbank for temporary, semi-permanent or even permanent purposes when filled with concrete.

Dune Stabilization

Dunes protect other areas from erosion and flooding but during storm surge events the foot of dunes get eroded. By installing TrapBags® in the core of a dune you ensure that a system is in place for protection even if the rest of the dune is compromised during a storm event.  All over the world sand dunes are under heavy attack from higher sea levels and more severe weather conditions as a result of the continuous process of global warming. By installing a TrapBag® barrier system inside the dune core, the erosion of the dune can be slowed down drastically or even brought to a halt.
