Flooding

Why Flooding Matters

Most of the highest risks for the built environment identified by the 2012 UK Climate Change Risk Assessment were associated with the impacts of flooding, which is expected to become more common throughout the twenty-first century. This will impact on both residential and public buildings and have impacts on service delivery and costs for clean up and repair.

Flooding Measures

Anti-flood airbricks

Flood proof doors, guards and gates

Flood resilient fittings and finishes

Non-return valves to drains, water inlet, and outlet pipes

Oil separators

Permeable paving and soak away

    Anti Flood Air Bricks

    Automatic Air Bricks can replace regular air bricks to make them more resistant to flooding. You can also fit Air Brick Covers to protect your building from flooding.

    Flood Proof Doors, Guards, and Gates

    Flood proof measures are designed to protect buildings and its contents from being damaged by flood water. There are three types of Flood guards that can be fitted to doors – demountable, automatic and permanent.

  • Flood Resilient finishes

    Flood Resilient Fittings and Finishes

    There are a range of building and finishing materials which can contribute towards protecting the building from flood damage and/or increasing the resilience of a building and reducing the time it takes to get it back in use. How these are best deployed should be based on a flood risk assessment carried out on the building/site and take into account expected flooding depth and velocity, structural considerations and the vulnerability of the occupants.

  • Non-Return Valves

    Non-Return Valves

    Sewage backflow can cause a great deal of damage resulting in long term consequences and high clean up expenses. Non-return valves can be fitted to drainage systems to allow waste water and solids to flow freely and unrestricted during normal circumstances, however once water surges back through the drainage system during a flood event, a gate within the valve is automatically shut through the hydraulic pressure of the flood water.

    Oil Separators

    An oil separator separates oil from water from fuel spillage and other contaminates, where it is retained safety until removed. These are usually fitted to surface water drainage systems to help protect the environment and encourage the reuse of the water.

  • Soakaway

    More

    Permeable Paving and Soakaway

    Permeable paving is a paving system made from sustainable and porus material that allows rainwater and other surface water to be absorbed and move through its base and subbase, therefore reducing the amount of runoff which can lead to flooding.

    A soakaway is a drainage system that is a hole in the ground that is filled with gravel or hardcore where rainwater and other wastewater drains slowly into the ground.
