UK Flood Barriers Install Flood Defender Door at BRE Flood Resilient House

BRE (Building Research Establishment) has launched a flood resilient prototype house to demonstrate the most effective ways to protect against flooding and limit the disruption caused by a flood.

The ‘Resilient House’, located on a business park in Hertfordshire, includes many practical measures including flood resistant doors & windows, water resilient walls and insulation, a resilient kitchen with moveable units, the installation of a sump & pump which protects against water rising through the floors, non-return valves fitted to sewage pipes and raised electrical sockets.

All of the measures together are designed to prevent water entering the building but also allow for quicker recovery after a flood, reducing both the cost and time it takes to recover.

UK Flood Barriers was pleased to supply, install & test a Flood Angel Composite Flood Defender Door for the project.

The Flood House allows visitors to experience flood conditions from inside the house, which is protected with Flood Defender Doors, Anti-Flood Airbricks, a Non-Return Valve and Sump & Pump system. Find out more here.
