The award-winning NOAQ Tubewall is a temporary flood barrier that is lightweight, flexible and quickly deployed, making it ideal as a flood barrier for fast response to flood threats. Developed in Sweden by NOAQ, the Tubewall has proven itself as a world leader in rapid flood protection.
The Tubewall consists of air inflated tube sections that are interconnected by zips to form a continuous protective flood barrier. Each tube includes a skirt which lies on the ground on the flood side. When flood water covers the skirt, the water’s own weight squeezes the skirt against the ground forming a seal. The friction of the weighted skirt against the ground anchors the entire Tubewall. Higher water levels provide better anchoring, and the Tubewall remains stable even if the water should rise to its top.
Deployment is easy; the tubes are rolled out, inflated with air using a handheld blower, zipped together and arranged to provide optimum flood protection.
The tubes can be extended indefinitely so that wide-area defences can be deployed when floods are threatened.
