One Stop Shop to protect your home or business against flooding
The Floodark barrier is quick and easy to assemble when flood protection is needed. The system uses lightweight, yet extremely strong 200mm (8") deep uPVC flood boards that can be simply clicked into place or removed one at a time as the flood water rises or recedes. No tools are needed. Compression locks ensure a watertight seal between the flood barrier frame and the flood boards.
The Floodark barrier can be fitted to any sized opening as everything is custom made. We survey, manufacture and install all our products - no subcontractors are used. This way we ensure the best quality and workmanship.

Home owners will be given a helping hand to make their home more flood resilient in the future thanks to a new government grant scheme opening 1st April 2014.
People whose homes and businesses were flooded between 1 December 2013 and 31 March 2014 can now apply for a government grant of up to £5,000 through their local authority, regardless of where they live. Even if property owners have already fitted new measures following this winter’s flooding they can still apply for the grant retrospectively to cover the cost.
Flooding Minister Dan Rogerson said:
'My sympathy is with everyone who was affected by the floods this winter. We are working hard to help people rebuild their lives, get back on their feet after the flooding and build a more resilient country for the future. I would urge anyone who was flooded to apply for a grant to become more flood resilient.'

The average cost of restoring a flood-hit three bedroom house to its former condition could be on average £30,000, with flood proofing costing an additional £15,000 according to data issued by Royal Institutution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
With repair costs so high, RICS has warned affected homeowners who are having their properties repaired to consider additional flood defence measures. Click to see the press release.
