The compact shape and stackability which facilitate efficient storage and easy transport make BoxBarrier one of the most efficient flood control systems. The BoxBarrier can be stacked up to 20 units high and stored outside.
As the BoxBarrier is light weight and retains water with water, transport of the BoxBarrier can be done by light equipment, like a Quad with trailer or a light weight open boat. This is why Boxbarrier is also an ideal flood barrier for homes.
The placement rate of the BoxBarrier is 100m per hour with a team of 3 men. The water can be pumped into the BoxBarrier by using a simple pump: 100 m of BoxBarrier can be filled in one hour by a 30 m3/hr pump.

On the 14th of June 2016 Vice President of the EU, Frans Timmermans, visited FloodProof Holland where he was introduced to several innovations in the field of temporary flood protection systems such as the BoxBarrier.
Large floods in NSW, Australia, during the past days have also resulted in large problems in Sydney. Bluemont is helping a flooded water treatment plant with their Hytrans Hydraulic pumps. The BoxBarriers are being used to mend a breached levee at location.
Waterboard Delfland in Holland raised the request to test various temporary flood defence systems in a simulated civil area of which the actual area of interest lies near the New Waterway (cities like Maassluis or Vlaardingen). To simulate this, objects have been located in the water basins of FloodProof Holland, consisting of a modelled curb and a wall. The request for every representative of the temporary flood defence system was to create a proper functioning system when these objects were in position. The BoxBarrier system performed properly under these conditions making use of additional elements such as wall and corner pieces.
