JACKBOX™ FLOOD UNITS
JACKBOX moves beyond traditional gabion technology of wire mesh to provide a self-supporting, light and flexible barrier; creating earth-filled units that protect against flood and storm events.
JACKBOX flood units utilize an impermeable front facing material to minimize seepage, while the rest of the unit comprises of a semi-permeable material to allow drainage of water within the fill material. These are independent units that can be easily deployed, and carried by two people.
The integrated base allows filled cells to be lifted away individually, allowing storage of fill material and minimal impact of fill material on the surroundings after removal of the barrier. 24 feet long JACKBOX barrier may be removed by one person with mechanical handling equipment within 34 minutes.
