Anti-Flood Air Brick Protection

Smart_Air_BricksProperties have flooded from floodwater entering through the air bricks. 500 litres of water can enter one standard airbrick in one minute!  Worrying enough, but when a property has one, there will undoubtedly be more than one airbrick. Replacing standard clay air bricks with SMART AirBricks provides automatic flood protection. It stops floodwater from entering a property through the airbricks.

Non-Return Valves and Backwater Valves

Additionally, bNon_Return_Valveackwater valves and non-return valves are a simple, cost-effective solution to protect properties from flooding. Non-return valves installed inside of manholes. Basically, these are fully automatic, and they stop backflow of sewage into a property. One way valves fitted onto drainage pipes decrease the risk of sewage backing up into a building during a flood. The valve allows water to exit the property but closes to prevent the backflow into the property.

Flood Pumps, Flood Alarms and Other Flood Prevention Products

To be sure of protecting your property against flooding from every possible point of entry is crucial. It is also wise to purchase a Flood Pump. They are an equally important part of flood protection. Coupled with other flood prevention systems, Flood Pumps 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 see how we can help protect your home or business against flooding.
