If you are in the construction industry and when faced with water issues you usually use sandbags, did you know that you can save both time and money with inflatable cofferdams from Dam-It-Dams? You will also instantly become more environmentally friendly as well if you make the switch from sandbags, which will be great for your company’s image.
Here is how you can save time and money by using inflatable cofferdams as opposed to some of the common alternatives.
Inflatable Cofferdams are Easy to Install
The manual labor associated with the installation of sandbags is both back breaking and takes a great deal of time. It can take days to dam water then transport the sandbags to where they are needed. Your crew may also need protective equipment such as gloves, footwear and eye protection.
With a cofferdam all that is required is the positioning of the dam, which is then filled with water to create the weight, leaving the dam to sink into place. Once finished with, they are – unlike sandbags – easy to remove. A cofferdam is much more effective than sandbags anyway, as sandbags are prone to seeping water.
Inflatable Cofferdams Can be Reused
Sandbags are reusable, but they are prone to splitting (which renders them unusable) and once damp, become saturated, heavy and take forever to dry out. They also rot easily, and may become completely useless if contaminated by water.
An inflatable cofferdam on the other hand is simply deflated once used and packaged away. You can then use your cofferdam time and time again, for multiple applications and in a variety of settings.
Inflatable Cofferdams Are Kind to the Environment
If you want a regular supply of jobs, then the reputation of your company is something to think about. More and more these days people are choosing companies that are environmentally friendly over ones that are not.
You can therefore tell your prospective clients that you use inflatable cofferdams over other, less environmentally friendly options. A water inflated cofferdam is kinder to the environment as it makes less of an impact, and is less likely to cause environmental issues such as topsoil erosion.
Of course, the key environmental aspect of an inflatable cofferdam is that it is reuseable.
