Filled hessian sandbags are the most widely used form of flood protection and are ideal for immediate protection of homes, businesses and river banks from flood water damage.

All our hessian sandbags come filled with dry kiln sand in a range of fabric grades and convenient capacities to suit different needs.

  • 12kg – Ideal size for traffic management. The 12kg weight is the perfect capacity to fold over the bars and hold down road and traffic signs.
  • 15kg – Recommended weight for sandbags used for sandbag walls and barriers for flood protection. When the sandbag is filled to this capacity, the bag will mould into any open spaces preventing any leakage points through the wall
  • 20kg – Filled to maximum capacity, these are perfect for any applications that require a full sandbag such as blocking holes and toilets

How much does a filled sandbag weigh?

Filled sandbags can come in three different weight capacities. 12kg filled sandbags are fantastic to weigh down road or traffic signs. 15kg is the recommended capacity for a sandbag to be used in flood protection. 20kg bags are filled to maximum capacity and are ideal for blocking holes or toilets.

Looking for large quantity or emergency filled hessian sandbags?

As the main supplier of sandbags to the Environment Agency and many other businesses, we have the capabilities to provide large quantities of filled sandbags in very quick delivery timescales. We fill all our hessian sandbags in house so can accommodate bulk and emergency orders and can manage the delivery suited to your needs.

If you have a requirement for over 60 filled sandbags please see here or contact us.

How long do hessian sandbags last?

Hessian sandbags will begin to degrade after about 4-6 weeks, which makes them ideal for use within agricultural settings, especially those containing inquisitive animals. Hessian sandbags are great for use in emergency flood defences, but must be used immediately after delivery due to their relatively short lifespan.

Please note: The delivery estimate for filled sandbags is 1-5 working days.
