How does the barrier work?

Using the force of floodwater to to stop it entering your property

The Floodshield Door Barrier is crafted to protect the single inward opening doors of your property against water intrusion. It functions on a straightforward yet profoundly effective concept: using the pressure of floodwater to form a strong, watertight seal around your door to block floodwater entry. Distinguished by its simplicity of deployment and the extensive protection it provides, this barrier is an essential component in your arsenal for flood defence.

How does the barrier clip in place?

Effortless installation, no need for tools, permanent alterations, or technical expertise

The barrier includes adjustable clips that firmly fasten to the flat exterior of your door frame. These clips are engineered to fit a broad spectrum of door dimensions and designs, guaranteeing a tight seal essential for efficient flood defence. Tailoring the clips to match your door's specifications is simple, ensuring the installation is swift and hassle-free.

How does it stop water entering the property?

A watertight seal with the door frame sealing off any possible entry points

This sealing capability is a result of the barrier's design, incorporating a pliable yet resilient material that moulds to the unique contours of your door frame, leaving no space unsealed. The increasing pressure from ascending floodwaters intensifies the seal's firmness, adding an extra safeguard to maintain your property's dryness.
