24/7 Flood Protection. Nearly Invisible Flood Barriers
FloodBreak does not want flood protection to come at the expense of functionality or aesthetics. That’s why we offer architectural treatments as an option with our flood barriers to match the surrounding area. Doing so allows us to ensure your property is permanently protected without the negative visual effect of traditional flood protection measures. Because our gates lay underground, treating them means that most people won’t even notice they are there.
Both the wiper walls and the barrier itself can be treated. Common materials includes stone, glass, tile, granite, and more.
We prioritize providing the highest quality flood protection while being as minimally invasive as possible.
Notable Project: Rosenberg Public Library
The Rosenberg Library is the oldest public library in Texas in continuous operation. During Hurricane Ike, the library suffered devastating water damage.
FloodBreak’s passive flood barriers now protect this historic building from the potential danger of future flash flooding.

Many FloodBreak flood gates have been designed using different materials to help architecturally integrate the flood hazard mitigation measures.
Our flood gates can be covered with tile or other materials in high foot traffic areas, like our gates inside the Warriewood Mall in Australia. The wiper walls for one of the barriers was replaced and used the storfront window glass to provide a sealing surface yet allow shoppers an unobstructerd view of the store. Despite the gate’s existence, most mall vistors walk right over it without ever knowing it is there.
This is how FloodBreak provides maximum flood protection without obstruction or impediment.
