Aquobex FloodGuard Flood Door Brochure - An overview of the design options for our range of flood doors that offer automaitc and passive flood protection for residential properties

In 2010 Aquobex worked closely with Europes leading door component manufacturers to design, build and test a flood door that would stand up to typical flood conditions as defined within the BSI Kitemark PASTM 1188-1. It was important to us that the flood door not only provided flood protection but would also stand up to the normal wear and tear associated with a residential door. The Floodguard uPVC Doors are a combination of the highest quality engineered components, specialist design and skilled manufacture which provide a quality product that will continue to perform for many years. Our uPVC Doors are made of solid panels formed by an MDF core that will stand up to normal wear. This will help your property survive a flood event, especially where debris impact may occur.

BSI Kitemark Certificate

The Kitemark is a UK product and service quality trade mark which is owned and operated by The British Standards Institution. The Kitemark is most frequently used to identify products where safety is paramount, such as crash helmets, smoke alarms and flood defences. Aquobex asserts that such independently verified quality assurance as the BSi Kitemark PAS1188-1 is fundamental to these products receiving the confidence of insurers and government.

EDF Case Study showing how to protect a nuclear plant using passive (self-operating / buouyant) flood barriers as opposed to manually-operated flood gates

Fukishima taught us that protection of critical infrastructure should take account of a combination of events such as earthquake followed by flood. It also taught us that reliance on human operations would introduce unnecessary vulnerabilities. EDF's protection of its nuclear reactor sites in France set the global benchmark for flood protection. It set out that passive flood protection barriers would overcome the failure risks associated with flood gates, demountable flood barriers or other removable flood barriers. This represents the highest standard of flood protection available without a complete permanent structure such as a continuous flood wall/levee/embankment.
