Flip-up Flood Barriers - a Permanent Flood Defence Solution


To provide unrestricted access to pedestrian and vehicle entrances, this self-rising flood barrier is fully recessed in to the ground when not in use.

Activated by a push button, automatically triggered by sensors, or manually, this flood barrier rises up to flood defence heights of 2m as standard and up to lengths of 12m.

Designed to provide totally unrestricted access to pedestrian and vehicle entrances.

A range of surface finishes is available; from skid resistant epoxy coatings to timber cladding or paving to fit in with the external hard landscaping.

These flood barriers can rise automatically with the rising flood waters or by push button in advance keeping you in control for complete peace of mind. Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) and manual backups mean these flood barriers will not let you down.

A single flip-up flood barrier system can protect openings up to 12m wide and multiple systems can be linked with intermediate posts to create a flood defence run of almost any length. Depending on span, flood defence heights of up to 2m are available.

Movement and weight sensors prevent the barriers opening if the entrance is obstructed whilst optional audio/visual alarms sound prior to and during operation.

Optional 24 volt back-up systems are available for use in the event of mains failure and permanently installed security grates cover the housing pit - serving as both a safety platform for traffic and pedestrians and as protection for the hydraulic system while the barrier remains raised.

These barriers are designed for pedestrian and vehicle entrances, or anywhere where unrestricted level access is required.
