Flood Control International is completing a Glass Floodwall project at New Ross In southern Ireland. The Glass Floodwall varies in height from 600mm to 1200mm, and provides permanent protection against flooding with no intervention required.
A solid wall would have been unacceptable in this attractive town, and Flood Control International’s Glass Floodwall with stainless steel framing was chosen as a durable, dependable solution that enhances the public area as well as provides full height flood protection.
The design allows for impact loading and also a sacrificial lamination in each glass pane so that even if one pane would crack, the full height water level is still contained.
Flood Control International is a Framework Partner for delivering the Flood Resilience Programme with Thames Water. The framework involves protecting a number water and wastewater treatment sites from flooding.
Our project at Maple Lodge WWTW is currently well underway with most of the at-risk assets protected. The designs have had to take in many considerations such as usability, the continuance of operations as well as cost and the variety of types of asset requiring protection. This project is the first of many which Flood Control International is preparing to deliver.
Flood Control International recently supplied a self-closing flood barrier to a car park in Tunbridge Wells. The flood barrier activates automatically with the rising floodwater, and does not require any human intervention to protect the area.
Flood Control International is nearing completion supplying and installing a 530m long flood-proof glass wall along the estuary at Shoreham by Sea. The glass floodwall uses marine grade stainless steel frames and specially designed glass, and allows a continuous width handrail for a good visual line. The glass flood barriers are designed to allow for full height loading and impact loads, and offer a cost effective permanent solution to raising flood protection heights without removing any views from homeowners and riverbank users.
