The company’s products are specifically engineered for use on sloped terrain and in environmentally sensitive and remote locations including, riverbanks, shorelines, marinas, national parks, excavation sites, and any site where construction crews and operational teams value versatility, fast set-up times, ease of use, and minimal site preparation. 

Interview with Troy Sherman, Co-Founder & Partner / Director of Market Development at Beach Bags Industrial.

Easy Engineering: A brief description of the company and its activities.

Troy Sherman: The company’s Anchor Point Systems are a flexible and highly portable alternative to precast concrete ballast blocks. Similarly, its Liquid Storage Systems are a creative solution for the temporary, on-site storage of fluids including water (potable and non-potable), fuel, and fertilizers. They are an ideal alternative to bulky, limited, and cumbersome liquid storage tanks.

All Beach Bags Industrial products, whether Anchor Points or Liquid Storage Systems, are developed and engineered to achieve the following advantages:

Works On Slopes

Beach Bags work just about anywhere and can be placed on undulating surfaces and slopes up to 20°. They’re an all-terrain liquid storage solution. 

Minimal To No Site Prep

Save time, expense, labor, and equipment spent on site prep. Because Beach Bags work on uneven terrain you simply place, unfold, and fill. 

Environmentally Friendly

Ideal for use in remote locations and environmentally sensitive areas, Beach Bags provide a no-trace solution allowing you to leave the worksite as you found it.


Eliminate the bulk and inconvenience of transporting rigid storage tanks. Beach Bags are compact, easy to hand carry, and several fit into the bed of a pick-up truck. With Beach Bags you simply fold and go.


Specialized fill and discharge fittings and valves designed your unique application.

E.E: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

T.S: Beach Bags is highly active in the marine industry using its Anchor Point Systems to temporarily moor hundreds of boats annually to environmentally sensitive rock, sand, and mixed terrain shorelines located within the Glen Canyon National Recreation area. The company also receives interest from crews looking for creative, low-impact methods for anchoring construction support barges and dredges to shorelines in remote and environmentally sensitive areas.

Beach Bags is more recently receiving strong interest in the construction industry from crews performing on-site batch processing of concrete. Concrete masons appreciate that multiple Beach Bags Liquid Storage Systems can be quickly and very cost effectively loaded into the back of a pickup truck, transported to a site, and easily deployed with minimal to no site preparation.  

E.E: What’s the news about new products?

T.S: Not only are Beach Bags Anchor Point and Liquid Storage Systems patented, but they’re also the only solutions of their kind that can be:

  • Deployed On Slopes (up to 20°)
  • Compactly and Easily Transported to Remote Job Sites
  • Quickly Deployed with Minimal to No Site Prep

These attributes make them a convenient and cost effective alternative to concrete ballast blocks and conventional liquid storage bladders.
