Anti-Flood Barrier

Discover innovative Water-Gate technology for increased protection in the event of flooding or rising water. An invaluable financial advantage for towns and municipalities in flood-prone areas.

Operation

The Water-Gate anti-flood barrier provides the optimal protection solution and is ideal for cities, businesses, and residential owners in a flood risk zone.

Its operation is simple: unroll, unfold the front of the flap to see the ballast and that's it! The speed or direction of the water doesn’t matter because water pressure opens the barrier.

Ideally, add an additional float along the entire length of the barrier using the barrier's velvet ties and hooks to prevent slight water leaks from going over the barrier when flood water arrives.

FAQ - Flooding

1. How much does an anti-flood barrier cost?

The price of an anti- flood barrier varies according to two major factors: flood height and the length of the area to be protected.

According to a study by the National Institute of Building Sciences, for every $1 invested in flood protection you will save $6 in restoration and home repair.

This is a smaller investment than the damage caused by a single flood and anti-flood barriers are reusable for decades.

2. How does it work, do you have to fill the barrier with water?

No, the Water-Gate barrier doesn’t need to be filled with water, as the flood water will enter the barrier and open it automatically. This is a huge advantage, as your property will be protected as soon as flood barriers are installed.

In addition, because of its triangular configuration, the Water-Gate barrier cannot turn over when the flood water exerts pressure and will therefore remain stable.

3. Is training required to use the Water-Gate flood barrier?

No, using the Water-Gate anti-flood barrier doesn’t require any special qualifications.

However, we invite you to read the user's manual (provided at the time of purchase) and to install the dry barrier to familiarize yourself with the tool before a possible flood.

4. Should a pump be used in addition to the anti-flood barrier?

No temporary water barrier - no matter how excellent - is completely watertight. Therefore, it is crucial to have a water pumping solution behind any temporary flood control system.

With the Water-Gate water barrier, and in general, a pumping capacity of 10 liters/minute/linear meter of protection is required.

It’s preferable to have several "small" pumps rather than one large pump. It’s also advisable to have a stand-by electrical generator.

We offer complete sets of pumps and other equipment such as hose racks.
