BAM Construction led the installation of JACKBOX along the River Aire in the centre of Leeds, West Yorkshire.
This install is part of the Leeds Flood Alleviation Project, considered to be one of the largest river flood defence schemes in the UK and JACKBOX is being used as a temporary flood barrier while the plans for the permanent weirs are implementedWATCH
JACKBOX is a development of the traditional HESCO Flood Barriers; moving beyond the traditional gabion technology to provide a lightweight and highly flexible flood barrier.
Developed and successfully tested by the US Corps of Engineers Research and Development Center, in Vicksburg, USA. JACKBOX is fast to deploy in an emergency and easy to clear away after the flood event.WATCH
Engineered to be separated as individual cells, during clean up after the flood event, allowing the fill material to be disposed of with ease. An 80ft JACKBOX Flood Barrier can be cleared away using Manual Handling Equipment in under 40 minutes.Video
