What are water filled barriers?

Water filled barriers represent a cutting-edge method for flood defence, ingeniously designed to harness water to create a sturdy and flexible shield against floodwaters. This approach stands in contrast to conventional techniques like sandbags, making use of the element it seeks to manage. Available in a range of sizes and capacities, these barriers are versatile enough to meet diverse requirements, from protecting homes to providing broad-scale defence for commercial areas and municipal settings.

How do water filled barriers work?

The concept of water filled barriers is straightforward but highly effective. In anticipation of flooding, these barriers are positioned as needed and filled with water. As they take on water, they grow heavier and more stable, creating an impenetrable barrier against incoming floodwaters. This technique cleverly uses the very element it defends against for its setup, guaranteeing a swift and effortless deployment, perfect for urgent flood protection needs.

What are the benefits of water filled barriers?

The advantages of choosing water filled barriers for flood defence are:

Quick Deployment: Water filled barriers can be rapidly deployed, making them perfect for emergency situations and sudden flood threats.

Reusable: Unlike single-use sandbags, water filled barriers can be emptied, rolled up, and stored for future use, offering a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option.

Versatile: They can be used to protect a wide range of properties and landscapes, from small homes to large industrial areas.

Effective: By forming a watertight seal, water filled barriers significantly reduce the risk of water damage during floods.

Frequently asked questions

Can water-filled flood barriers be reused, and how should they be stored?

Yes, water-filled flood barriers are designed for reuse. After a flood event, they should be emptied, cleaned, dried thoroughly to prevent mold and mildew, and then stored in a dry place away from direct sunlight. Proper maintenance and storage ensure their durability and readiness for future use.

How quickly can water-filled flood barriers be deployed?

Water-filled flood barriers can be deployed relatively quickly, depending on their size and the length of the area to be protected. Smaller barriers can be set up by one or two people in a matter of minutes, while larger systems might require more time and manpower. The speed of deployment makes them an excellent option for emergency flood response.

What makes water-filled flood barriers a good choice for properties?

Water-filled flood barriers offer several advantages for both residential and commercial properties. They are easily deployable, require minimal storage space when not in use, and can be configured to fit various landscapes and property lines. Their effectiveness in blocking water, coupled with the ability to reuse them, makes them a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option for flood protection.

Are water-filled flood barriers effective in all types of flooding scenarios?

Water-filled flood barriers are highly effective in a range of flooding scenarios, especially in cases of sudden flash floods, storm surge, and riverine flooding. However, their effectiveness can depend on the specific situation, such as the terrain, the extent of water rise, and the length of time the barrier needs to hold back water. It's important to assess the suitability of water-filled barriers for your specific flood risk profile.

Are Floodshield's water filled flood barriers suitable for residential areas?

Absolutely. While designed to offer protection on a large scale, many of Floodshield's flood barriers can be adapted for residential use. Their versatility makes them suitable for protecting individual homes, neighbourhood entrances, or entire residential communities, depending on the specific needs and risks of the area.
