Permanent Flood Protection For Levee Crossings
FloodBreak’s passive automatic flood barrier system can be designed to provide permanent flood protection for levee openings and levee crossings.
These FloodBreak flood barriers, do not require human intervention or power to deploy, so they protect 24/7 which makes them extremely valuable for remote levee crossings that are difficult for personnel to reach before a flood event.
Proven Flood Protection That's Built To Last
Miles of levees must be raised to meet FEMA accreditation requirements. FloodBreak’s automatic flood barriers are designed to meet the new levee elevations without raising miles of roadway or rebuilding bridges. And because they lie hidden in the road, they don’t limit driver sightlines that raised roadways would cause.
Rated for HS-25 loading, the barriers are covered with durable material to withstand the demands of high-speed highway traffic.

Maintenance is minimal but FloodBreak offers a Flood Ready Certification program for customers who do not have the resources to perform the recommended annual inspection. With this program, FloodBreak takes responsibility for your installed flood gates and inspects them for you to give you peace of mind that they will deploy and protect as designed.
