Flip-Up Flood Barriers: A Permanent Flood Control Solution
FloodBreak’s flip-up flood barriers provide permanent flood protection to vehicular and pedestrian entryways without impeding access or movement. Rising floodwater lift the barriers from their underground position until they are fully perpendicular to the ground. Once the flooding has ended these flip-up barriers will float back down until they reach their normal resting position.

Flip Up Barriers With No Size Limitations
These barriers do not have any height or length limitations and are custom fabricated to fit the exact dimensions needed for any flood mitigation project. In certain circumstances, these flip-up barriers can also be equipped with manual lifts in the event that personnel want to manually deploy the barriers as an extra precaution.
The FloodBreak flip-up barrier is able to extend over long areas because they do not rely on stanchions or support beams. This makes them most suitable for riverside properties, large commercial buildings, and protecting crossings in a levee.

- Permanently reduces flood risk
- Permanently protects any vulnerable pedestrian or vehicular opening
