Floodgate is a rapid deployment flood protection system, which is low cost and effective for residential properties and robust and flexible for commercial and industrial premises.
Floodgate was developed in conjunction with the University of Wales and is used by the Environment Agency and many councils in England and Wales and now in Australia.
The Floodgate flood protection system consists of doorway barriers that are able to be extendable through a unique modular system. They are especially suitable for businesses requiring increased flood protection measures. Vent Guards are also available to protect vulnerable vent points on the building exterior walls.
The Floodgate door guards are designed with the homeowner in mind and consist of a 25mm boxed frame that expands telescopically, firstly horizontally, then vertically. The frame is covered by a 7mm thick rubber envelope that creates a watertight seal against the doorway frame.
This lightweight effective door guard takes 2 minutes to install and comes complete with are the equipment needed to successfully protect your valuable home or business from the effects of flooding.
The Door Guards fits 99% of domestic doorways moulding itself to the doorway for effective sealing of your property to 680mm in height.
Floodgate for commercial businesses is designed to extend in a modular form. Stanchions are locked into previously installed ground fittings. The Floodgate barriers are then positioned laterally between the stanchions, providing a proven and effective protection system for large structures and openings. Floodgates can also be made to measure for non-standard openings.
The Vent guard is designed to protect vulnerable breathing points on a building, for example air-bricks and gas vents on the exterior of buildings. Once sited it takes just seconds to operate the unique bung securing system.

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