Introducing the first high specification kitemarked security & flood defence door

Image

The Flood Angel® Steel Security & Flood Door now provides the security market with the high specification kitemarked semi passive flood protection they have been waiting for.

Developed as a result of customer demand, the new Flood Angel® Steel Security & Flood Door is designed to mitigate against rising flood waters up to a height of 900mm and can also safeguard from fire and break-ins. UKFB have invested heavily in the development of this breakthrough product to ensure the door meets the demands of an increasingly security-conscious market prepared for increasing flooding events.

Manufactured in the UK, the Steel Security & Flood Door is unique as it holds two Kitemark certificates to PAS 1188-1:2009, but is still a cost effective solution against both unauthorised entry and flooding. In situ 24/7, the process for locking and securing the flood defence seals is quick and simple, just by simply closing the door leaf until the bolts engage.

A highly versatile solution, the door can be designed and manufactured on a bespoke basis to a variety of widths and heights with an optional escape hatch for emergency access. The escape hatch effectively allows safe access and egress, but without the need to open the door, compromising its flood proof integrity.

The Steel Security & Flood Door is ideally used for external applications where flood protection is required alongside security and/or fire resistance and is suitable for the following locations:

Secure remote sites:

  • Warehouses
  • Store rooms
  • Emergency access / escape routes
  • Retail Outlets
  • Utility sites
  • Electrical sub stations


Now commercial and industrial sites can effectively remain secure whilst safe in the knowledge they are prepared should a flood event occur.  

This new flood defence solution safeguards building entrances and completes a portfolio of products that offers comprehensive protection. 

Our CEO, Frank Kelly comments: “Flooding can affect anyone at any time, and it’s not an issue that is likely to disappear anytime soon. However, the good news is that businesses can protect themselves from the devastating effects of flooding by installing this new door, which offers unrivalled protection from the elements. The Steel Security & Flood Door is the result of extensive research and development to ensure it provides the ultimate defence against flooding. Having been tested thoroughly in our state of the art in-house testing centre, it has achieved two Kitemarks that demonstrate its superior quality. By installing the Flood Angel® Steel Security & Flood Door business owners can now be secure in the knowledge that their possessions and assets are safe from the onslaught of flooding.”
