Sandbags for Flood Defence

High quality sandbags for domestic and commercial use

We stock sandbags in both traditional Natural Hessian and Polypropylene. They are ideal for flood defence in both domestic and commercial situations.

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.

All of our sand bags are manufactured to the highest quality. Filled sandbags are delivered with the optimum amount of sharp sand to provide a highly effective tool for flood defence. If you have an area vulnerable to flooding our flood sandbags are an essential part of your defences.

We have stocks of everything you need and supply both large commercial and domestic quantities. Our prices are very competitive, and as always you can rely on the excellent level of customer service Radbournes pride themselves on.

    “The gravel has been delivered thank you. Just wanted to say how helpful your driver was too, it is tight coming along the lane but he didn’t mind and went the extra mile to get the gravel far enough into my field so me could get past it. He was really helpful. Thank you very much.”
