In this day and age, it pays to be as environmentally responsible as possible. No matter what you personally feel about global warming, there are very few arguments against taking steps to reduce the amount of pollution we produce and the environmental impact we have on a personal level.
Here at Dam-It-Dams we recognize the importance of our products being as environmentally friendly as possible. Our inflatable cofferdams are for external use after all, which means they temporarily form part of the landscape, and have an impact on the landscape while they are in use. We feel it is our responsibility to make sure that we minimize the impact that our cofferdams have on the environment.
Our Water Filled Cofferdams Have Environmental Advantages Over Other Options
The water filled cofferdams provided by us here at Dam-It-Dams are designed to work in tune with the local environment. A cofferdam creates a temporary and effective water barrier that does not leave a sizable footprint behind. Our dams are energy-efficient too – once they have been inflated, they require absolute zero power in order to maintain them.
When their need has been fulfilled it is then just a case of deflating them, packing them away and storing them for their next use. This means that our cofferdams can be re-used time and time again making them completely recyclable and even more environmentally friendly.
Traditional Construction Methods Can Cause a Stark Environmental Impact
A construction site is not typically an environmentally-friendly place. Once the site has been finished with and all tools, machines and constructions removed, it can take years for nature to replace the damage that the construction process has caused. Waste too typically ends up at landfill sites which causes a further impact to the environment.
Traditional damming methods, such as sandbags, cause a lot of disruption. Transportation is required to get the sandbags to where they need to be, and then there is the need to move dozens of individual sandbags into position.
With a water inflated cofferdam the resource you need to complete the inflation – water – is already present! This cuts down on transportation and also saves you time and money.
