Geodesign Flood Barrier in large scale flood

Flood Barriers from Geodesign Barriers™

Flood Barriers from Geodesign Barriers™ are one of the most widely used flood protection barriers on the market, with a proven track record and numerous successful operations carried out around the world.

Geodesign Barriers™ incorporate high quality design and materials with the latest manufacturing processes to produce a trusted, safe and reliable flood barrier and protection system.

This flood barrier system is used by the European Civil Defence agencies, civil engineering contractors and environment agencies. The barriers have a simple and robust design consisting of a strong high quality galvanised steel frame, which is designed to support, aluminium sheets (STEEL BARRIER), waterproof plywood (BOARD BARRIER) or wooden pallets (PALLET BARRIER).

Geodesign Flood Barrier Heights

The standard barrier protection heights in the this system are 0.45m, 0.65m, 1.25m, 1.5m, 1.8m, and 2.4m barriers.

A new 1.5m high barrier that can be deployed at 0.5m, 1.0m or extended to 1.5m has just been launched.

Geodesign British Standards Approved Flood Barrier

Geodesign Barriers were the first freestanding flood barriers to achieve the coveted British Standards Institution BSI Kitemark (in May 2003).

1  Effective Flood Protection Height is the height of water that the barrier will withstand.

2  Freeboard is the amount of flood barrier that needs to be above the water level.

3  Overtopping is the ability of the flood barrier to withstand water overflowing the barrier.

4  Base Width is the amount of flat or nearly flat ground needed to support the barrier. It is the flood barrier's effective "width" on the ground.

For really strong, proven protection from flooding you can rely on the strength and engineering of Geodesign temporary flood barriers. This is one flooding system that people are happy to stand behind! Samples are available for testing and evaluation.
