A Simple Yet Innovative Mechanism

FloodBreak flood barrier system uses only flood water to function! It’s one of the popular flood-fighting systems that fight water with water! Let us explain.

Step 1

Before a flood hits an area, FloodBreak automatic floodgates lie flat on the ground, well-integrated to the surrounding architecture. As it starts to flood, the water level makes the aluminium beam float, activating the self-sealing rubber gasket. Simply put, the hydrostatic pressure of rising flood levels activates the flood barrier system. 

Step 2

The flood barrier gets lifted gradually with the water pressure, preventing water from entering your premises. So, with the rising water level, the barrier lifts up further, working even more efficiently. Even if your area is hit with a heavy flash flood, you don’t have to worry, as the FloodBreak will do its job.

Step 3

As the water level goes down, the barrier also lowers itself. Eventually, it will go back to its hidden position, letting you run operations interrupted again. Vehicles and people can resume their work, moving over the barrier as it appears almost non-existent!
