US Flood Control - Water Barriers for Flood Prevention

 

 

 

Flood Control International INC.

We design and supply Flood Barriers, Flood Gates and Flood Doors for flood prevention in New York and throughout the USA, with flood defenses installed in Boston, Connecticut, Miami, Arizona and California.

Flood water damage is devastating. Whether it's flash flooding from heavy rain, sewer overflow or storm surge, the effect on buildings and business can be catastrophic. Properties are ruined, businesses and municipal organizations cannot function, lose money and fold.

Did you know that nearly 40% of small businesses never restart following a disaster because just a few inches of water can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage?

Our engineered water barriers defend nuclear power stations, utility substations, corporate headquarters, hotels, shopping malls and residential blocks.

If you need the peace of mind that when the next flood comes you’ll be ready, then contact us now.

 

Flood Protection Products

Our flood barriers, flood gates and flood doors have been tried and tested. Our system of lightweight aluminum stop logs was tried and tested during Hurricane Sandy and has been used in Europe since 1994 and in the United States since 2006.

Our removable flood barriers and stop logs work as hard as you do to keep your business running. They not only keep the water out, they give peace of mind. Don't get caught out next time.

FLOODING IN IOWA!

Twice in recent weeks sand-filled flood defences have failed leaving many blocks flooded in both Burlington and Davenport.

The video above how a progressive failure of these sandbag style flood defences can lead to rapid and dangerous flooding of the protected areas behind the floodwall.

City Officials in Burlington stated  that the flood barriers may have been more prone to breach because the sand in the makeshift floodwall was likely saturated due to recent rains. This really shouldn’t have been an option or an issue – if a flood defence is weakened to the point of failure by rainfall, then you really need to think again….

 The difference between these types of wall and properly engineered flood defences couldn’t be clearer. Our engineered flood defences are designed and certified to withstand full height water loads with impacts, and their strength does not degrade with time or the weather. They are 100% re-useable, quick and easy to install and remove, and can save millions of dollars of protected investment in a single use.
