When choosing a flood barrier system for your flood control project, passive flood barriers not only reduce the risk of flood damage, they also provide lower total cost of ownership.
Lower cost of ownership
Active flood barriers, particularly demountable systems like flood panels, flood logs and inflatables, may have a lower purchase price but have you considered what the true costs are over time? Consider that those active flood control products must be transported to and from the flood opening, folded or stacked and then stored between flood events. Not to mention mandatory annual planning and training as part of an Emergency Plan.
When you consider those costs and the attendant risks associated with those factors, passive flood barriers, which protect your facility 24/7 without human intervention or power, are a much better flood control solution.
