DefenCell used to build flood protection walls in Kentucky

Defencell has been used to build flood protection wall around the Kentucky town of Smithland.

This project represents the largest ever emergency installation of a Defencell Flood Wall system in the United States. The Defencell Flood Wall is a geotextile-based system, originally developed for ballistic defenses in military operations, and can be quickly constructed utilizing local fill, sand, or other common aggregates.

Within 24 hours of receiving a call from the Corp of Engineers, Fiberweb® delivered three miles worth of Defencell Flood Wall units that, once installed, would provide almost four feet of additional flood protection height to a key stretch of the levee in Smithland.
