JACKBOX’s innovative and flexible design means it can be rapidly deployed to provide quick flood protection in emergency situations.
Rapid deployment and complete protection
JACKBOX™ utilizes HESCO Concertainer engineering, a multi-cellular barrier system, which allows rapid deployment of flood protection during an emergency situation.
PURPOSE BUILT FOR FIGHTING FLOODS
Bringing military and environmental expertise to deliver a lightweight, recyclable, rapidly deployable flood barrier. Engineered for emergency installation, JACKBOX is completely self-supporting, can be carried by two people and can be filled with ease and local fill material.
|JB2727||27" (0.7m)||27" (0.7m)||20' (6.1m)|

JACKBOX can be deployed by one person in under one minute. Cells are pre-assembled, packed flat and come in a standard length. They can be easily linked together so you can deploy a structure that provides the exact length of protection you need it to.
Once assembled, just fill them with soil or granular fill material to protect against flood waters.
Because of its cell structure, clean up after the flood is simple. An 80ft JACKBOX can be cleared away using Manual Handling Equipment in under 40 minutes. All you need to do is unlink the cells, pull a pin and dispose of the fill material.
The plastic barrier can also be recycled so your footprint on the environment is minimal.

This product is not designed to be stacked.
JACKBOX can be removed using a forklift and the fill material can be emptied off-site allowing for units to be recycled.
Our Emergency Response Team can provide training prior to the flood event, or, if an immediate deployment is needed, provide on the ground support.
Our onsite support and training packages are available anywhere in the world and allow the end-user a direct line of communication throughout the installation.
