Why do I need a survey to order a Flood Defender™ Barrier?
The Flood Angel® Flood Defender™ Barrier is bespoke and made to measure for individual openings, with six different fixing options available. A survey is required to identify the correct barrier measurements and most suitable fixing options for your property.
Is there a cost for the survey?
We do make a nominal charge for our survey however, 50% of this cost is refundable against a subsequent order for the installation of Flood Angel® products.
Do you accept supply-only orders for a Flood Defender™ Barrier?
No, all barriers must be fitted by a fully trained and certified BPEC installer. As the Flood Angel® Flood Defender™ Barrier is a bespoke product with a range of fixing systems it requires both survey and installation to be completed by an individual/organisation with the BPEC certification for the survey and installation of flood mitigation systems.
What is the lead time for installation of the barrier?
Due to the bespoke nature of the Flood Defender™ Barrier, we require a 60% deposit to be paid before an order can be put through to manufacture. When we have received payment we will schedule a date for installation, this is typically 3-4 weeks.
