Brick Defence

Without the protection of a Flood Angel Anti-flood Airbrick or Airbrick Cover, a regular airbrick will allow over 5000 litres of water per hour to enter a property. BSI KITEMARK ACCREDITED

FLOOD ANGEL® ANTI-FLOOD AIRBRICK

  • Slide 1
  • Slide 2

The Flood Angel® Anti-flood Airbrick is the first BSI Kitemark accredited airbrick in the world.  (PAS 1188-1:2009)

It is the most efficient and effective airbrick replacement on the market. Its superior design is completely passive.

Designed to replace a standard airbrick it allows air to freely pass through complying with BS493:1995, but under flood conditions its self-activating gate will automatically shut off.

A removable integral mesh prevents the ingress of insects and debris which may otherwise impinge on the moving part. This unique mesh is imperative to the efficient functioning of the airbrick.

  • Fully compliant with the Code for Sustainable Homes
  • Suitable for use in listed buildings
  • Can be retro fitted or used in new build construction
  • Made from recycled polypropylene
  • Standard colours to match exterior brickwork: terracotta, engineering blue, black, white, buff
  • 2 year manufacturer’s guarantee

BENEFITS

AUTO-CLOSES
The Airbrick uses the power of the flood water to close itself. Once waters subside, the Airbrick opens again.

RETRO-FIT or NEW
The Airbrick can be retro-fit or used in new build construction.

STOPS INSECTS
The integrated mesh unit stops insects and debris entering.

SPECIFICATIONS

TECHNICAL
The brick is constructed from durable materials, e.g. recycled polypropylene co-polymer with UV stabilisers against deterioration and silicone sponge. Silicone sponge has been approved by the WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Service). The Flood Angel® Airbrick has an excellent resistance to ozone, oxidation, ultraviolet light, corona discharge, cosmic radiation, ionising temperature of -20° to 120°. The product has a minimum geometric open area of 2400mm3 and, therefore, can contribute to meeting the ventilation opening requirements of 1500mm2 run of opposing walls or 500mm per m of floor area for suspended ground floors, whichever is greater, and 500mm per m for wall cavities. The product, therefore, can be used to meet the relevant requirements of the national Building Regulations and home warranty providers.
