Weather patterns this past year have lead to an increases in unprecedented amounts of flooding that have not been seen in decades. Luckily advancements in technology have made it available to more accurately predict when and where natural disasters can occur. Depending on the natural disaster we can estimate how much major damage to both land and property there may be.
The WIPP® system, or the Water Inflated Property Protector is a product developed by Hydrological Solutions to minimize the risk of damage to businesses’ or consumers’ valuable property while maximizing protection during floods.
Using WIPP® to guard your home or business by placing it around the premises will help to prevent invasive water from damaging your property. You may have tried using sandbags to prevent invasive water from entering your property. However, there are several problems with sandbags:
- Time-consuming to lay and fill, difficult to handle.
- Susceptible to leaks
- Can become contaminated waste once soaked with filthy floodwaters full of bacteria, creating disposal problems.
- They aren’t environmentally safe like the WIPP® system.
WIPP® are made from industrial grade vinyl coated polyester laminated with a base of woven polyester between two layers of flexible polyvinyl chloride. WIPP unites can be quickly and easily repaired in the field in wet or dry conditions. Most importantly, they are reusable, compact and provide for easy transportation and handling. Customization of sizes are available.
