For many homeowners who live in high flood risk areas, sandbags and make shift barricades have been an all too familiar sight for far too long.
But as UK Flood Barriers is proving, as it installs flood mitigation measures to properties across the UK, contemporary property level flood defence couldn’t look more different.
The Worcestershire based flood expert is currently working on a major scheme for housing association client, Two Castles Housing, installing flood defence measures to 47 properties in Carlisle.
The use of the market leading Flood Angel Composite Defender Door complemented by Flood Angel low level flood defender windows means properties can be protected with no visual impact.
Windows are constructed with a ‘top opening’ function and weep vents are strategically positioned in the lower door frame to ensure no internal build-up of condensation.
The doors and windows are manufactured incorporating specially designed seals and locking mechanisms to ensure the risk of flood water entering the property in minimised.
As well as the Flood Defender Doors and windows having no negative visual impact on the property, due to the passive nature of the products, the real advantage to residents is that they can relax, knowing their property is protected 24/7.
