Tapex bring DefenCell Flood Barriers to Australia

DefenCell® is a flood barrier technology from Terram, distributed exclusively by Tapex in Australia & New Zealand. DefenCell® was exhibited for the first time in Australia at the FloodPlain Management Association conference in Deniliquin in May 2014.
A enormous amount of interest was generated, in particular because of the speed with which Defencell® can be deployed, its robustness (made from Terram geotextile) and its ability to be used on uneven ground, in particular bridging gaps in levee banks. As a consequence of this interest, a local field trial will be conducted by Deniliquin Shire Council.
DefenCell® is used to build new defences, enhance existing protection measures or reinforce weakened levees, ensuring that communities, towns and farms are protected.

Tested by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, DefenCell® Flood Walls significantly outperform sandbags through:
• Faster installation and removal time
• Less water seepage
• Better overall system endurance

A simple one metre high (or just 0.50m) wall will be sufficient to stop all but the most extreme flooding. Adding this to an existing levee or embankment is a quick and easy solution.
