For tenants of Habinteg Housing Association (Ulster) Ltd, new doors have brought a welcome defence against surface flooding.
Mr and Mrs Beegan of Habinteg’s Sullivan Close in Holywood are delighted with their new Flood Defence features, fitted by Campbell Utilities. Their property, as with many in low lying districts has been threatened with flooding on many occasions, often with sandbags and plywood sheeting forming the last line of defence. The couple have faced many anxious times during the spells of heavy rain which have fallen across Northern Ireland in recent years.
Now though, thanks to the partnership between Habinteg and Campbell Utilities, the installation of state of the art features – including Flood Defender Doors, Flood Defender Barrier and anti-flood airbricks – has brought a much welcome change. “We have never felt so relieved” said Mrs and Mrs Beegan “not only do we feel safe from the threat of rising waters, but our home is quieter, warmer and all round more secure”. The Flood Angel® Flood Defender Doors installed at Mr and Mrs Beegans property have been designed for use on residential properties to protect doorway apertures against water ingress. The Flood Angel® Flood Defender™ Door holds three Kitemarks to PAS 1188-1:2009 and is manufactured for use on single, inward and outward opening doors, as well as double outward opening doors.
