FloodBreak was founded on a fundamental yet very simple concept — using the power of rising water against itself to automatically protect structures from flood damage caused by floodwaters. Without human intervention and without power.
There has never been flood damage behind a properly installed FloodBreak-protected entrance.
Active flood control products require human action, a primary cause of avoidable flood damage. FloodBreak eliminates that problem and the risk posed to people and owned assets.
FEMA states its preference for passive flood mitigation measures because it eliminates human intervention. Passive flood barriers like FloodBreak’s eliminate this requirement and deploy automatically regardless of whether personnel can get there or not. These self-rising flood barriers, unlike traditional flood control measures, permanently mitigate flood risk.
Moreover, FloodBreak products are designed for long service life with minimal maintenance so they will operate as designed for decades. In addition to vehicular & pedestrian entryways, these flood barriers can be designed to protect vulnerable vent shafts & ducts.
Materials are specified for long-term exposure to harsh, outdoor conditions so they are not prone to corrosion or rust.
