Hessian Sandbag

Hessian Sandbags

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.

As suppliers to the Environment Agency and previous suppliers to the MOD, we have supplied millions of sandbags and are capable of dealing with any sandbag enquiry.

We offer 3 grades of hessian from stock which includes our standard hessian sandbags, or a military specification rot proof alternative, which is larger and will last for longer in harsh weather conditions.

  • Rot Proof Military Specification Sandbag - 36x84cm, heavy duty rot proofed hessian, Extra heavy 9oz jute fabric as used by the British army. Made to BS Standard 1214: 1977. The rot proofing extends the life of the sandbag in harsh weather conditions.
