SLAMdam, a temporary flood defence. Compact and easy to set up, it could make a huge difference in the event of flooding or disasters. It enables a dam to be built by 2 people in just 1 hour, spanning 100 metres in length and with a partition boundary of 50 cm! The elasticity of the SLAMdam means it can be installed on any surface. The material’s high degree of flexibility ensures that bumps are easily covered.
The SLAMdam’s unique properties render it suitable for a wide array of target groups. Obvious examples include district water boards, fire service, armed forces and disaster specialists. Nonetheless, farming businesses and private individuals are also benefiting.
The SLAMdam was developed to be sustainable and is resistant to UV, ozone, the majority of chemicals, acids and alkalis and is suitable for use in the most varied of weather conditions. Because of its resistant to chemical this product is also ideal for the petrochemical industry, it can be rapidly deployed at a chemical leak or storage of chemicals. And you can fill the dam with air for a a SLAMbridge. A cross over for people and vehicles. |
