Flood Water Barriers - Flooding Solutions in Australia




Flood Barriers

Flood Control International offers five types of flood barrier to ensure the right flood solution is provided: Removable Flood Barriers, Glass Flood Barriers, Flip-up Flood Barriers, Drop-Down Flood Barriers, Portable Cylinder Flood Barriers. We also do Containment Barriers for chemical containment.

The flood barrier design varies from a simple modular 'stop-log' water barrier to automatic barriers that operate only when required. Flood protection heights up to 4m and unlimited lengths of flood wall systems are possible.

Automatic flood barriers can operate to self-raise with the rising flood water, or be push button operated so that the flood barrier can be operated in advance of floods with full peace of mind. They can also be manually operated as required.

We provide CAD or PDF drawings of all installations ensuring they fit in with your requirements and that they integrate correctly with the whole scheme design where required.

Removable flood barriers are engineered to provide similar levels of protection to permanent flood defences, but with the advantage of being fully removable when not required.

These flood barriers can be supplied for virtually any configuration and can be configured for flood protection heights of up to 4m.

Glass flood wall to protect from seaGlass flood glazing by riverGlass flood wall by sea 

Our glass flood barrier walls utilise high strength structural glass, engineered frames designed to withstand static and impact loads, structural anchoring system, and specially designed watertight and impact resisting sealing.

This flood defence solution requires no operational input and causes minimal visual intrusion where flood protection is required.

Flip-up flood barrierFlip-up flood barrier by riverFlip-up flood barrier clad in wood 

To provide unrestricted access to pedestrian and vehicle entrances, the automatic flip-up flood barrier is fully recessed in to the ground when not in use.

Activated by a push button, automatically triggered by sensors, or manually, this flood barrier rises up to flood defence heights of 2m as standard and up to lengths of 12m.

Quick response flood defence to land areas threatened by severe flooding normally requires substantial resources in terms of sandbags, personnel and transport. Even with adequate time, such flood defences are often inefficient and time-consuming.

The Portable Cylinder Flood Barrier (PCFB) system is quickly erected using minimal personnel, transport and time and it works.

Flood Control International offers chemical containment barriers to protect against chemical spillage or fire-fighting run-off.

These barriers can isolate a whole site or just part of a site, allowing opening in bunds where level access is also required.
