Resist / mobile flood barrier system

Resist
Resist

Resist is a highly flexible system that can be used everywhere where there is quick protection against a flood needed.
It doesnŽt have to be grounded and works on every terrain.
The system consits of modul boxes, that contain a big plastic tube.
To build a barrier, the module box is carried to the place of action. After opening it, it has to be filled up with compressed air until the tube reaches its full size.
The tube now gets filled up with water (e.g. flood water) until its fully filled and there is no more air inside.
Now that it is set up, the next module box can be connected to it with the clap hinges etcetera.
