BALLASTING BAG

  • lestage - MegaSecur

Description

The ballasting bag was designed to create a uniform weight throughout the length of the barrier conforming it to the shape of the terrain on which it lays. Quick to unroll and evenly distributing the weight, it’s available in a 10 feet (3m) long roll weighing 30 pounds (13.5kg). It is most important to have a uniform weight in front of the barrier. When using the WA Series for aquatic work, available stones may be used instead of the ballasting bag while in the WL Series, sewed on ballast will do the job on its own. If no weight is available on site, the ballasting bag will be very helpful.
