Types and Uses

The importance of flood defence has become more and more apparent in recent years. Periods of extraordinary weather and an increase in surface run-off from hard landscaping have led to numerous flooding incidents that spell heartbreak and financial disaster.

Flood defence specialists can advise on the best ways to manage flood risk and how best to protect homes and business premises. Flood defences can be permanent constructions of concrete, metal or other materials, or temporary structures brought into play when flood risk is high. They can be systems designed to protect a whole community or products for an individual home. Some barriers for community projects rise automatically using the power of the floodwater, other types are simply and quickly put in place when needed.

Permanent flood walls can be intrusive on a local community’s life during non-flood times, so mobile flood protection systems beside waterways are increasingly popular. Examples of demountable flood defences are aluminium beams between support posts which can be quickly and simply fastened onto anchor plates.

For an aesthetically pleasing permanent flood barrier, there are glass wall systems available and bespoke flood gates in a wide choice of styles.
