CONCEALED FLOOD BARRIER
The Concealed Flood Barrier is a passive, self-actuating flood barrier. Rising flood waters automatically deploy the barrier via floatation.
The barrier is permanently installed below ground level at the isolation point, ready for deployment when required.
Rising water levels cause an automatic response, elevating the isolation barrier via floatation.
- Suitable for 1m-20m wide openings.
- Low maintenance design.
- Options available to meet aesthetic and traffic loading requirements.
- Minimal footprint.
All FloodFree Barriers are purpose-designed, engineered and manufactured.
Project partners receive full design support to ensure the product delivered will be engineered and certified to withstand site specific worse case scenarios for expected flood water height, debris loading, deployment times etc. Design considerations include the condition of the nominated site, with options for greenfield and brownfield sites.
The FloodFree range has a minimum 25 year design life.
Minimal maintenance is required ensuring low ‘whole of life costs’.
All manufacturing procedures are in accordance with an internationally accredited ISO
9001 Quality Management System to ensure each barrier is delivered to a high quality standard, tested and ready for trouble free operation.
The Concealed Flood Barrier uses approaching floodwaters to automatically raise the barrier without human intervention, electricity or mechanical assistance.
Detailed documentation on operation, testing procedures and maintenance can be provided with all FloodFree Barriers.
Comprehensive on and/or off site training is available.
