Flip Up Flood Barriers installed at NYU Hospital, New York

21-07-2017

Flood Control International has recently supplied four large flip-up flood barriers to a hospital in New York, which rise automatically when required. When in the raised position the flood barriers protect to 12ft-6ins high (4 metres) and 40 metres length. When lowered, the flood barriers become the loading bay floor, completely hidden. Special shipments were required to get the barriers from their fabrication site to the installation location.

Flood Barriers installed in Chennai, India

13-07-2017

Flood Control International recently completed installation of flood barriers around the HCL campus site in Chennai, India. The site flooded badly in November 2015, during the Chennai floods. The campus is surrounded with a perimeter flood wall and Flood Control International’s removable flood barriers were chosen to protect the entry and entrance gates. Once completed, the gates were tested using firstly a fire hose and then a water tanker and successfully passed all tests.

Flood Doors Pass Full Height Water Testing

26-06-2017

Lloyd’s Register recently tested Flood Control International’s Flood Secure Doors for leakage and strength, with water pressure to their full height. Both single and double doors were tested and checked against PAS1188-1. The double door was 2.5m wide and 2.6m high, and with the water at 8ft (2.44m) high, there was less than 0.1litres of leakage measured over one hour!

​Glass Floodwall installed in Orkney

15-06-2017

Flood Control International has recently completed Phase 1 of the Kirkwall Harbour Flood Defence Scheme comprising a new glass floodwall, flood gates and demountable flood barriers. The design required resistance to not only full floodwater loading but also extremely high pedestrian loads envisaged during the annual ‘Orkney Ba’ – an annual event which sees scrums of up to 350 men fighting over an old football! The glass frames use ‘duplex’ stainless steel for its high strength and corrosion resistance, and these are integrated with the demountable barriers at ladder access points and floodgates at the vehicular accesses. Phase 2 of the works comprises larger floodgates and is due to be completed this Autumn.
