Flexible dams for flood protection

Buitink Technology develops and produces flexible dams to protect against flooding. These dams are entirely made of flexible canvas as such easy to transport and to install.

The dams can be delivered with special carrying bags. Various sizes and colors are possible. Different segments can be connected. Modules of 5 or 10 m length are available.

Optionally the dams can be equipped with valves to empty the dam or create a water flow through the dam. A dam is completely manually installed, i.e. no special tools, equipment or sand bags is needed.
