Quick Dam Sandless Sandbags

Quick Dam Sandless Sandbags are instant sandbags that expand in size when water is added to them.  When considering any sandbag alternative, it is important to look at differences in functions, features to decide what product is right for you.

Upon opening the individual bags, the difference in dimension and polymer filling is very apparent (which enables the sandbag to instantly inflate).  FloodSax is the larger, white colored bag, whereas Quick Dam is the smaller black colored bag.

 FloodSax / flood sacks are much larger in size and contain more super absorbent polymer filling, which makes them 25% larger than other sandless sandbags on the market.

The filling inside these bags are exactly what gives them their weight and volume to protect against flooding disasters and indoor water damage.  FloodSax polymers are more evenly distributed in the bags because of its unique patented 9 chamber design.  Quick Dam flood barrier bags have all the polymer set in a corner of the bag (one must shake and spread out the contents to evenly distribute contents).

Inflated Sandbag Dimensions:

  • Quick Dam: 12" x 24" x 3.54
  • FloodSax: 19" x 20" x 6"

Weight and Volume of Instant Sandless Sandbags

The flood protection capabilities of a sandbag is based on its weight and volume.  Since the weight and volume capacity of sandless sandbags are based on 1) the size of the bag and 2) its crystal polymer fillings, it is safe to say that the heavier the bag, the more powerful it is against indoor and outdoor water protection.  Here are the numbers:

  • 1 FloodSax bag weighs 1.5 lbs
  • 1 Quick Dam bag weighs 0.5 lbs

From these numbers and the images, it is clear that FloodSax offers greater flood water and liquid damage protection.  

Benefits of FloodSax Flood Barrier bags
