Inflatable bladder dams are flexible, eco-friendly and quick to use. Most systems are installed in just one day, ensuring that you stay on schedule. No more putting projects on hold while you wait for costly dewatering. Time is money, and with an inflatable bladder dam, you can save both.
Aqua-Barrier®: The Ideal Dewatering Solution
Flexible, inflatable bladder dams are the tool of choice for dewatering. They’re easy to inflate, repair and are completely reusable. Aqua-Barrier® inflatable bladder dams are the most cost-effective way to dewater your site. This prevents water from reentering the job site during construction. That is just one of the distinct differences that set the Aqua-Barrier® apart from other dewatering solutions.
1) Superior Construction
The Aqua-Barrier® consists of industrial grade vinyl coated polyester. This fabric features a base of woven polyester between two layers of flexible polyvinyl chloride. The result is a durable, strong material made to withstand harsh conditions and a variety of terrains. This material allows for easy repairs, is reusable, and can be stored compactly.
2) Innovative Stabilization Method
Aqua-Barrier® inflatable bladder dams use internal baffles that lock into place when the barrier is exposed to uneven water pressure. (This occurs as water drains from the worksite.) The amount of inflated barrier above the water level is called freeboard. To ensure stability, there should be at least 25% freeboard. Aqua-Barriers® will shift to stabilize when exposed to uneven water pressure. In some cases, weak soil or hazardous conditions may require additional freeboard.
3) Sizes for Every Scenario
Whether you’re working on a small residential boat ramp or large bridge, the Aqua-Barrier inflatable bladder dam can work for you. They come in a variety of sizes, which makes it a versatile product for your worksite.
4) Easy Installation
Bladder dams are easy to install, no matter if you have no water, standing water, or moving water. Installation calls for minimal manpower and machinery. Inflatable bladder dams are easy to remove when dewatering is complete.
Construction projects operate on tight schedules with firm deadlines. Delays not only set the project behind but set the budget back as well. With the Aqua-Barrier® inflatable bladder dam there is minimal installation time, and removal leaves no trace of the device. It’s a simple solution to a big problem!
