APPLICATIONS

The Flood Defender™ Door is designed to mitigate against rising flood waters up to a height of 600mm, and can withstand standing water, wave and current.  Whilst it is designed to be flood resistant, in everyday use it will act as a standard UPVC door in all other aspects.

The Flood Defender™ Door can be manufactured as a bespoke item to a variety of widths and heights, and can incorporate both fully glazed panels as well as full or part UPVC panels.  Widths beyond a double patio door size can be incorporated by the inclusion of UPVC or glazed side panels.

Suitable for use on:

  • single inward opening doors
  • single outward opening doors
  • double outward opening doors

Wide range of styles, glazing and door furniture. Available in white and golden oak.

SPECIFICATION

CONSTRUCTION

One-way Weep Vent (patented)Weep vents are incorporated into the single inward opening doors to allow the draining of rainwater that may enter the frame. This is standard in normal (non flood proof) UPVC doors as it permits normal draining to occur.

However, with the Flood Defender™ Door the weep vent that is incorporated has a one-way valve which prevents the ingress of rising flood waters during a flood event, whilst allowing the escape of rainwater from the frame during normal rainfall conditions.

The weep vent is manufactured from high impact styrene.

Optional Escape Hatch

The single size Flood Defender™ Door has the option of including an integral escape hatch for emergency evacuation purposes, allowing people to exit a building without compromising the flood proof integrity of the door. The escape hatch is for normal use on side door or back door.

The peripheral frame remains intact, with the opening hatch created in the upper section, and pivotable, opening inwards or outwards. The panel of the escape hatch may be manufactured from either glass or UPVC, with an internal lockable handle. NB: the locking may, optionally, include a means for locking/unlocking from outside the door.

Robust Handles

We have worked with hardware specialist Yale to design handles and locks that are substantially more resilient to everyday use. In addition we incorporate, as standard, a longer handle to allow greater leverage when engaging the locking mechanism. This makes the procedure considerably easier for users, especially those with impaired ability.

PASSIVE FLOOD DEFENCE

Passive Door Defence
The optimal effectiveness of passive flood defence systems in the built environment has been well established in recent years and building on that success UK Flood Barriers continuing programme of innovation and product improvement has led to the introduction of two new versions – SCFB™ – Mini & Midi.

The self-closing flood barrier range has in common the principle of harnessing the power of weather to activate the barrier to provide an innovative and cost effective solution, serving and protecting strategic urban and commercial areas. 

The SCFB™ – Mini & Midi have been developed to protect doors, double doors and small gates against floods. The working principle is very similar to that of the larger Self Closing Flood Barrier but with its reduced scale, it does not require a service pit but is filled by rising flood water, through a small inlet pipe.

BENEFITS

The SCFB™ Mini (1m) and Midi (2.5m) systems are activated when flood water rises to within 100mm of flood level. A small filling pipe, which is situated adjacent to the barrier at 40mm below flood level, allows water to fill the basin in the pit and the barrier floats and rises. 

When the basin is completely full, the closing surface locks the barrier in a watertight position. This self contained unit comprises a polyester basin; a polyester floating barrier wall which is 40mm thick; a PUR foam core that allows it to float without absorbing any water. When the flood level subsides, the basin is drained using a pump which is surface mounted. Located in a waterproof compartment this function allows the barrier to return to its resting position. The surface lid on the barrier prevents the inflow of waste or debris into the system. The SCFB™ – Mini & Midi needs a 220V connection. The systems can be fitted as standard with a telemetry early warning system that can be remotely monitored.

  • Passive System: no man power is required. The barrier deploys without any human intervention
  • Two barrier heights: 0.6m and 1m
  • Two barrier widths: 1m and 2.5m
  • Zero operation cost:
  • Virtually maintenance free: only occasional maintenance required
  • Invisible and fully protected: in its resting position
  • Guarantee: 2 years manufacturer’s and Installers guarantee
  • Complete peace of mind:  the barrier will always deploy in flood conditions.
