A typical flood mitigation plan often seeks to build a perimeter floodwall or berm around a facility that requires floodproofing.
Our automatic flood barriers are the perfect solution to protect the openings in the floodwall necessary to facilitate pedestrian and vehicular access. The flood barriers lie hidden in front of those openings during dry times and automatically deploy when flooding threatens. The buoyant flood barrier lid is lifted by the rising floodwater and the self-activating gaskets will seal against the walls to prevent flood inundation.
Many critical infrastructure buildings are designed with perimeter floodwalls, and FloodBreak’s automatic floodgates are the perfect low-disruptive solution to protect the openings.
By laying underground until activated, critical openings can remain accessible as long as possible up until the very start of a flood event.
