For ages, sand bags filled with sand or soil have been used for the purpose of controlling river floods and water overflow from other water bodies. These bags play a crucial role in preventing soil erosion and reinforcement of buildings as well as various general construction and military projects.
Sand bags, also known as dirtbags, have been employed for military fortification to protect army men in trenches and bunkers as well as provide protection to the mobile armored military vehicles. The bags are also used to provide protective barriers for security personnel in wartime and war zones or against terrorist attacks.
