Identification

Climate change is causing extreme weather events that lead to increasingly frequent and violent flash floods, affecting previously unexposed areas. These cause considerable financial, ecological and psychological damage. In order to reduce these impacts, Ausec has developed the OBLOC® range of flood control products. Flood barriers absorb, block and divert water and sludge during a flood to reduce damage and waste after a flood. This lightweight, thin-looking bag increases its volume by 2400% when activated in contact with water. The patented innovation of these products provides a low storage volume, homogeneous activation and excellent water retention capacity. They are environmentally friendly and can be used independently.

  • OBLOC® flood bags are 4 times faster to implement (2 hours for the 10 sandbags (reception, filling and installation), about 30 minutes for the 10 OBLOC® flood bags)
  • The solution is composed of 87% recycled products (super absorbent polymers not adapted to the hygiene sector), these products are reused to reduce the waste generated following a flood - The envelope is composed of recyclable polypropylene
  • OBLOC® products contribute to reduce the waste generated by floods
  • The use of OBLOC®'s products reduces the use of sandbags, CO2 emissions related to sand transportation and damages related to sand extraction.
