is a revolutionary flood barrier that
automatically rises in times of flooding
to protect your property. It can be
placed in front of any opening and be
designed for any flood water level.
a hinged box that is recessed into the
ground in front of the opening. Because
it is recessed, it lays completely flat
to the surrounding area, allowing unrestricted
access at all time. It has been engineered
for extreme loads, and for instance
is able to withstand the weight of a
fully loaded truck driving over it.
The top of the barrier can be covered
with almost any finish material, making
it blend in with the surrounding areas.
The greatest attribute of this product
is that it is the flood water that makes
it work. There is no human or electrical
input needed for this system to operate.
Its operation is very simple. The recessed
box is attached to the local storm drainage
system, which allows normal rain accumulation
to simply drain away. When the storm
drain systems have filled up, the box
can no longer drain and water starts
to accumulate. As the water rises in
the box, the buoyancy of the lid starts
to lift the barrier. Rubber flanges
on the sides and at the hinge prevent
water from passing around the barrier.
The barrier will rise with the water
and will lower as the water recedes.
Engineered and tested to meet the highest
codes and standards, Floodbreak
is the ultimate in passive flood defense
