If you want a reusable barrier which can withstand the wrath of mother nature, this is our ‘go-to’ barrier of choice. This is a water filled barrier which will stand strong against wave action, high winds, flying debris, and lots of water. Muscle Wall provide our most robust and reusable protection. Additionally, extension pieces can be purchased allowing the end user to expand on any barrier already purchased.
Muscle Wall is the most robust, water filled barrier on the market and truly is reusable again and again. Muscle Wall is an extremely versatile product and can be configured from 6-inches up to 8-feet. If you have areas that receive flood waters repeatedly, Muscle Wall is an excellent flood defense resource that can be rapidly deployed, offers you the level of protection you require, and doesn’t require heavy machinery.
Because this product is water filled, you only need a pump and a source of water to install them and by simply pulling the plugs, the water quickly drains out for an easy and clean removal to storage for the next flood event.
The Muscle Wall system is able to withstand the immense force of rushing or standing water due to its patented toe design.
The pressure of the water forces the toe downward, thus overpowering the hydrostatic force, which anchors the wall to the ground.
The unique “L” shaped design of Muscle Wall enables each wall to nestle together with another in order to maximize shipping and storage space.
Each wall has an extrusion on the top of the wall that snaps into place on the toe of the connecting wall. This system allows the walls to be securely stacked together.
The coupler-joint connection allows each wall to securely connect one with another. Each wall features a male and female connection, designed to slide into place on the corresponding connection on the next wall.
The graphic beside illustrates the proper way to stack sandbags, according to the United States Army Corpse of Engineers. The USACE also exposed that the true expense of sandbags, once you factor in cleanup and other costs, is $2.50 to $5.00 per bag. This proves that not only is Muscle Wall a much more cost effective solution in the long run, but is saving you money even at the first deployment.
Time is not always a luxury that is available, luckily Muscle Wall is a product that can be deployed rapidly when time is short. With just a small team of people a hundred feet of Muscle Wall can be fully deployed in just 30 minutes. If sandbags were to be used on that same scale it would take well over a day. Muscle Wall can even be deployed when floodwater has already began to rise. Each wall can be floated into place and sunk using the same water that the wall is protecting against.
