Henley in Arden, United Kingdom, November 20, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Following the devastating floods experienced by businesses and householders in Cornwall, Henley in Arden based Henley Water Gardens have announced they are the approved stockist of Floodsax for Warwickshire and surrounding area. Floodsax are an alternative to sandbags that weigh little but inflate into a flood barrier when in contact with water.
As residents, businesses and insurers count the cost of the most recent floods to hit the national news, Henley Water Gardens are expecting a surge of interest in flood protection and the range of Floodsax products they are now stocking.
Jacqui Mills, who founded Henley Water Gardens with husband Peter, said, “I can’t imagine anything more devastating than your home or business being inundated with foul smelling water. The disruption and cost are something no one wants, which is why we are now the Warwickshire stockists of Floodsax. Unlike conventional sandbags that are both difficult to store and heavy to move, Floodsax are easy to store and very easy to install in front of a door, window or garage when floods threaten. The reason being that they do not contain heavy sand. They contain a material that expands on contact with water to form a flood barrier to protect homes and business premises from the worse of flood damage.”
Jacqui Mills continued, “Whereas a sandbag is so heavy most people struggle to move them Floodsax come vacuum packed, weigh just a few ounces but expand on contact with floodwater to form a really solid flood barrier. For even more peace of mind you can take them to where you want to use them and soak them with 20 litres of clean water in situ. They are so light and easy to use that a child or old person can move and place them in position. Councils and flood protection specialists nationwide are also using them.
Henley Water Gardens are selling Floodsax at their aquatics centre on the outskirts of Henley in Arden and also via their website www.HenleyWaterGardens.co.uk where they offer same day despatch.
