FloodBreak adds New Zealand to its expanding global presence

Permanent passive flood protection without the need for human intervention or powerFor over a decade, FloodBreak® passive automatic flood barrier systems have been protecting people and property without human intervention or power across the U.S.  Based on it’s simple yet proven design, increasingly customers across the globe are choosing the passive system to protect critical assets.  A recent customer installation in New Zealand marks the first in that country though the response has been extremely positive and discussions with the project team will undoubtedly lead to more projects.

Permanent flood protection Hidden beneath grade

The FloodBreak vehicular flood barrier provides permanent protection yet remains hidden beneath grade until an actual flood event occurs, allowing unimpeded access.  Regardless of time of day and without need for personnel to be present, the floodgate will deploy automatically, lifted by the power of the rising floodwater.

FloodBreak featured in FEMA Floodproofing Non-Residential Buildings publication

FEMA P-936, Floodproofing Non-Residential Buildings, features two hospital flood mitigation projects with floodwalls and FloodBreak® passive flood barriers. The new publication is intended to assist local government officials, engineers, architects, and property owners involved in the planning and implementation of floodproofing retrofits. Both hospital mitigation projects were FEMA funded and used a combination of floodwalls and passive flood barriers to protect the lifeline institutions. The combination is an effective approach for hospitals as it provides the flood protection these critical institutions need to ensure that they can provide healthcare to their communities while also ensuring full access for patients and staff until a flood event is imminent. You can find the full publication on FEMA’s website.  . Go to FEMA website

FEMA issued a new Floodproofing Non-Residential Buildings publication  (FEMA P-936 ) to provide new information and guidance for planning and implementation of floodproofing retrofits. The passive floodgate technology used by FloodBreak has been proven in actual flood situations at over a dozen verified customer locations including many with multiple occurrences.
