Extensively Tested Flood Defence System

We have absolute confidence in the strength and reliability of our system and this belief is supported by the results of independent testing in the UK and the USA. The British Standard Institute (BSI) Kitemark is a globally recognised quality mark that gives consumers the reassurance that a product meets rigorous standards of safety and reliability. In addition to this, our product has been tested for hurricane protection by the American Testing Lab Inc. – an institution with a reputation for the highest level of performance evaluation. In both cases, our barriers passed all tests with flying colours.

Recognised with a 2014 BSI Kitemark Standard

In September 2015, our flood barriers were tested at H.R. Wallingford – the national laboratory for assessing flood protection products against BSI Kitemark standards. During this test, examiners carried out three series of tests over a 48-hour period in a tank containing 1.3 million litres of water. Having passed all three tests, our barriers were awarded the PAS 1188-1:2014 Kitemark accreditation. This is the third and most stringent edition of the standard and was developed to raise standards across the industry. It followed consultation with a range of organisations, including the Environment Agency, Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and DEFRA.

Hurricane Testing by American Test Lab Inc in Brevard, North Carolina

In 2005, we took our barriers across the Atlantic for extensive hurricane resistance testing by the American Test Lab Inc. Our barriers meet the standards required for both the Florida Building Code Testing Application Standards (TAS) 201, 202 and 203 for Miami-Dade County, the most stringent test protocols for high velocity hurricane zones. The barriers also meet a further set of criteria set by the American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM E 1886, E 1996-97 / 02, 330-02). These tests included having logs of 2x4 timber fired at the barriers from a specially constructed cannon – our barriers withstood the impact.

National Flood Forum
National Flood Forum

Those who have experienced flooding are all too aware of the emotional, physical and financial impact it has upon their lives. The National Flood Forum is a national charity that supports and represents individual and communities that are at risk of flooding.

We are pleased to support the work of the National Flood Forum. Their projects can vary from helping to prepare for and recover from the impact of flooding, to working with government and the relevant agencies to ensure those communities at risk of flooding are protected.
