Eastman/Geocell Receive Gold International Design Excellence Award

An innovative design making it easy to quickly create an effective emergency flood wall has received a Gold International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) from the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) for inventor Geocell Systems, Inc., San Francisco, CA, USA, and material supplier Eastman Chemical Company, Kingsport, TN, USA.

The Rapid Deployment Flood Wall (RDFW) is an expandable, stackable, modular wall made of tough, lightweight, environmentally responsible Eastman Spectar copolyester plastic pellets that are extruded into sheet by Spartech Plastics. Geocell die cuts and assembles the components. The RDFW harnesses the strength of compressed sand or other locally available fill. It is a faster, less expensive and less labor-intensive alternative to the task of filling and stacking sandbags in flood conditions.
