Flood Protection Companies in the UK

Types and Uses

Floods have been big news in recent years. The disastrous scenes of summer 2007, when large areas of the Midlands and northern England were FloodDoor.jpg under water and several lives were lost, are still fresh in people’s minds. It seems that every year there is freak weather somewhere that puts lives and property at risk.

The Environment Agency estimates that over five million people live or work in flood areas in England and Wales. Flash floods and hillside run-off from sudden rain, burst drains and rising ground water levels can cause flood havoc anywhere – it is not just people living on the coast or close to a river who can be affected.

Flood protection products will help to keep water out of a property and avoid the immense distress, upheaval and cost that floods can cause. There is a huge range of products available, some designed to prevent comparatively shallow flooding from getting into a building and others to delay the ingress of more severe flooding and limit damage. Kitemarked certified products are a buyer’s reassurance that the flood resistance has been fully tested.
