Passive Flood Gates To Protect Ramps & Stairwells
FloodBreak’s passive automatic flood barriers can be installed to protect ramps, stairwells, and other pedestrian entryways that are susceptible to flood damage.
Our gates’ innovative design allows it to be installed on a slope, whether that be for vehicular entrance into garages or pedestrian pathways into buildings. In addition, the floodgate can also be installed at the top of stairways or escalators to prevent water from flowing to lower levels.
These passive automatic flood barriers provide permanent, 24/7 flood protection without the need for human intervention or power. This means areas behind the flood gates will remain safe without the need for onsite personnel to deploy the barriers, something especially important in the event of unforeseen natural disasters such as flash floods.
Why Passive Over Conventional?
Traditional flood protection measures for pedestrian entryways include inflatable water bags, sand bags, lids, and manually activated flexible gates. While these may seem like cost-effective alternatives, they require human intervention and the inherent risk that personnel cannot deploy them in time.
FEMA recommends passive flood protection whenever possible because it eliminates human intervention. There are simply too many ways active measures can fail due to human intervention.
FloodBreak’s flood barrier systems give customers peace of mind that their assets are always protected from flood damage.
Flood Protection With No Slowdown In Activity
Active flood protection measures take time and people to deploy and can prevent access prematurely. FloodBreak’s passive automatic solutions only deploy during an actual flood event or for emergency preparedness. You don’t have to shut down your facility prematurely in order to prepare for natural disasters.
With FloodBreak, you can rest assured knowing our flood gates will automatically deploy with the flood water, eventually returning to their hidden, underground position when the water recedes.Minimal disturbance, minimal cleanup, and maximum protection.
