Flood Defence Barriers

Demountable Aluminium Flood Defence Barriers

Seal any size doorways or entrances with our watertight Demountable Flood Prevention Barriers. Accordingly, our Nautilus removable flood barriers are made from high strength aluminium, yet lightweight, therefore easy to handle. Consequently, after the initial installation, assembling our flood barriers is a quick and simple process. Our clients can protect their properties against flooding within minutes.

Afterwards, the flood boards are stored away ready for the next flood event.
As with all of our products; they are manufactured in the UK and carry the PAS 1188-1 and PAS 1188-4 accreditation. This is the standard recognised by the Environment Agency and British Standards Institute.

Glass Flood Walls

Glass Flood Walls are permanently fixed, therefore no assembly is required by the client. They don’t compromise views which makes them ideal for riverside and seafront properties.

Flood Defence Gates

Furthermore, we supply and install Steel Flood Gates and Hardwood Flood Gates. These are permanently fixed therefore no assembly is required by the client. Therefore, should a flash flood occur whilst away from home the property is automatically protected.

Other Flood Prevention Products

Our range of Nautilus temporary flood defence barriers are the perfect solution to flood proof your home or business. However, there are many other flood prevention systems available and are listed below. Also it is very important to check and address any possible entry points for flood water.

  • Cable or pipe entry points can be silicone sealed.
  • Cracks and holes can be filled with mortar, or re-pointed if excessive.
  • Breathable waterproof sealant can be applied to solid brick and good condition walls.
  • And the construction and condition of the floor must be checked.

We carry out all of the above free of charge when installing our flood defence barriers or flood defence gates.

Air Brick Protection

Replacing airbricks with SMART AirBricks® provides automatic flood protection to stop flood water entering a property through the airbricks. Also, aluminium vent covers can be specifically manufactured.

Non-Return Valves and Backwater Valves

Backwater Valves and Non-Return Valves are a simple, cost effective solution to protect properties from flooding. Hence, non-return valves are installed inside the manhole. Importantly, these are fully automatic and they stop backflow of sewage into a property. Backwater valves are fitted directly to the pipe. The valve allows water to exit the property, but closes to prevent the back flow into the property.

Flood Pumps, Flood Alarms and Other Flood Products

Flood Pumps are an important part of flood protection. They can drastically reduce the damage that flooding can cause. We also supply and install flood alarms and many other flood defence products all around the UK. Contact us to find out how we can help you to protect your home or business against flooding.

Sowerby Bridge Floods on Boxing Day 2015

On Boxing Day 2015 Sowerby Bridge was hit by the worst floods since 1968. Like many thousands of homes and businesses, Halifax Ironworks suffered extensive flood damage.

Flood Defence Barriers Nautilus 400 at Sowerby Bridge

Not wanting to risk going through this devastation again, Halifax Ironworks put in mezzanine floors to raise machinery. They also had Nautilus demountable flood defence barriers and other flood prevention products installed.

Over the last three years the team at Halifax Ironworks have been regularly checking and assembling their flood defence products. Additionally they have been checking the condition of the walls. By taking these appropriate measures they ensured that they were fully prepared for the next flood.

In March 2019, the flood defence barriers were truly tested for the first time. Our clients were happy to report that their factory remained dry. You can read their fantastic review over on our Reviews Page.
