The Floodbreaker range

Keep Property Watertight

The threat of flooding in the UK is significant, with over 5.5 million properties classed as 'at risk', according to assessments across the country by Government bodies.

Those same reports are clear that, with climate change and further urban development, the situation is only likely to worsen.

Despite Government investment in improving and extending flood defences, they also acknowledge that there will always be a need for protection at property level.

However, there are some things that developers, builders and existing homeowners can do. The Floodbreaker range of flood defence products offers some protection for domestic properties.

“With this range, we’ve put together a package of products that will help homeowners to protect their properties from the devastating consequences of a flood event,” explained Glenn Cartledge, Flexseal’s Commercial Manager.

“This range covers flood defence in several different ways, whilst being practical and affordable. Installing such measures also helps homeowners to gain flood insurance or to lower their premiums.”

“Flood resistance measures are often sufficient to ensure no interior damage to a property. However, during a significant flood event, some water may still enter the property. In those situations, flood resistance measures can buy homeowners valuable time to take further protective action,” Glenn commented.

The Floodbreaker range The Floodbreaker range

There are several solutions in the range.

One is an easily-fitted door barrier that prevents water entering via gaps in the frame whilst allowing the homeowner to open the door during flooding.

It requires minimal changes to the property, with only small, unobtrusive holes visible while the flood barrier is in storage. It is easy to fit into place if a flood event is anticipated.

The Intelligent air brick is a ‘fit and forget’ solution. The smart air brick functions as a standard air brick in normal circumstances, yet its internal mechanism swiftly blocks the ventilation holes on contact with flood water.

A single unprotected air brick can allow 50,000 litres of water into a property in an hour.
