Hessian sandbags are the most well-known and reliable method of keeping floodwater away from property. They are flexible, hardwearing and biodegradable, meaning that the bag will naturally degrade over time.
Hessian sandbags, which are also known as jute sand bags, have been used extensively for flood protection for many years. They also have excellent impact absorbing properties for applications such as military, defence and shooting ranges.
