Sliding Flood Gate in Dover Pumping Station

11-04-2018

Flood Control International recently installed and commissioned a Sliding Flood Gate in Dover, UK to protect a water company pumping station.

This manual Sliding Flood Gate operates without the need for an in-ground trough which can fill with water or debris or ice, and can be fully closed by one operative within five minutes.

The Sliding Flood Gate’s innovative system allows it to lower onto its base seal when in the closed position to create a watertight seal.

Glass Floodwall at New Ross, Ireland

09-04-2018

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.
