Glass Floodwall and Flood Barriers at Wells-Next-The-Sea

08-07-2019

Flood Control International recently completed a second phase of floodwall at Wells-next-the-Sea, protecting the harbour office area with glass floodwall and demountable flood barriers at the access openings.

Using a marine grade stainless steel frame allows a smooth top rail and good sight lines, as well as reducing design glass thicknesses as the glass is supported on all four sides.

The overall design was integrated with the existing walling to produce an attractive and effective glass flood defence.

Flood Barriers Protect London Underground Stations

01-07-2019

Flood Control International (FCI) recently commissioned an automatic flood barrier across the entrance to the new Tottenham Court Road Underground Station as part of the Crossrail project. The flip-up flood barrier is totally flush when in the lowered position, and is topped with the same entrance matwell as either side so it is invisible until required. This flood barrier is just one of number designed and delivered by FCI to a variety of London Underground Stations over recent months including Bond Street, Liverpool Street and Bank underground stations.

FCI Studies Stainless Steel Materials with Plymouth University

27-06-2019

Flood Control International has been working with Plymouth University to increase understanding of the properties of the marine grade stainless steels used in our glass floodwall systems.

Designers visited the University’s electron microscope facility to study different finished to the steel which have a marked effect on the suitability of the stainless steel in various environments.

The photograph shows two test pieces of the same marine grade material but with different surface finishes after exposure to salt water.

Specification to ensure the floodwall is visually attractive as well as 100% effective is important in almost all scenarios where glass floodwalls are considered.
