Gravitas International is a family run business with over 40 years experience in non-woven technology, inventing, manufacturing & marketing new product – changing the world as we know it.
The HydroSack® (blue) and HydroSnake® (red) were developed after severe flooding hit the UK, catching the public unawares and causing millions of pounds worth of damage.
Gravitas were the first in the UK to introduce flood protection products into the UK’s national retail outlets, designing and manufacturing products that were affordable to all those who would need it most.
The HydroSack® and HydroSnake® are the ideal replacement for the traditional sandbag, being lightweight and easy to store before needed. They have been designed as eco-friendly products that can stay in storage for 5+ years.
When a flood warning is issued, activate them by simply adding water, which allows them to swell to the size of 5-6 sandbags, weighing up to 20kg. They will retain their shape for 3-6 months and will last for any given flood season.
Both the HydroSack® and HydroSnake® have a unique 3-section design that allows for a controlled spread of contents when being distributed or relocated, reducing risk of injury to the user.
Once the floodwater had subsided, both the HydroSack® and HydroSnake® are easy and safe to dispose of – they contain a mixture of pulp and Super Absorbent Polymer which is eco-friendly and degradable.
The HydroSack® and HydroSnake® are available in store an online at B&Q, Homebase, Wickes, Costco and other DIY and Builders Merchants across the UK and Europe.
Gravitas International is dedicated to manufacturing and marketing environmentally beneficial products, bringing new
ideas to the global market.
