Spilo Technical Textiles produces polypropylene (PP) military sandbags for several applications. These bags are filled with sand or soil and used for such purposes as flood control, military fortification, road signage stabilising, ballast and all other applications requiring mobile fortification. Sandbags are often used to temporarily stabilize soil from erosion, such as ocean front structures where foundations have been undermined by heavy waves and bad weather. Sandbags are also used in earthbag construction to make inexpensive, environmentally sustainable homes. Some other advantages of sandbag utilization are that the bags and sand are inexpensive, compact and lightweight for easy storage and transportation and the bags can be brought to a site empty and filled with local sand or soil.
