About sandbags

Sandbags have traditionally been made from hessian or jute material. This material meant that sandbags could be filled with sharp sand and used effectively as a flexible tool to make any size or shape of a wall of sandbags. Hessian jute sandbags were ideal for many uses as the material is completely biodegradable and when the sandbags had served their purpose they would naturally rot away and decompose.

Over the years, sand bags have been developed and are now made in other materials for different purposes. Woven polypropylene has seen much development over the years and now millions of sandbags are made using this material. Polypropylene sandbags or “Poly sandbags” are non-biodegradable and so can serve a different purpose. Sometimes sandbags are required to dam a stream or part of a river, in which case, polypropylene sandbags are an ideal solution as they will last longer submerged in water. Extended exposure to sunlight will accelerate the degrading process of woven polypropylene sandbags.
