How does the flood stop barrier work

When in use, the majority of the modular units actually fill with the rising floodwaters, which combined with the weighted universal keys ensures the assembled flood barrier holds back floodwaters.

All units and keys incorporate hard-wearing gaskets to ensure sealing. For acute cornering or wall connection in a Flood stop assembly, a Multi-hub unit is simply used. The beauty of this patented flood prevention system is that no bolting to the ground is required.
It also means that when the floodwaters recede, the pods empty themselves and become light enough to be carried away.

They are also a much more cost-effective and reliable alternative to flood sandbags. In the above set-up a free board is required.

Flood insurance is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain, and most home and business owners are aware that they must take responsibility in protecting their properties from the risk of flooding with flood defence barriers. Benefits of Floodstop include:
