Flood Protection Barriers for French Doors in North Norfolk

30/01/2020 flood protection for french doors

Installing flood protection barriers takes us all over the country (and recently as far afield as Texas, USA) so it’s nice occasionally to have a job on our doorstep, like this recent installation across some french doors in Norfolk. The countryside and quaint architecture in North Norfolk is breathtakingly beautiful, but the famously flat landscape is also prone to coastal and flash flooding.

Full Flood Risk Survey

The meadow to the rear of Mr Shepherd’s house can only soak up so much precipitation before it floods. Mr Shepherd was concerned that excess water falling on an already sodden meadow might come flooding through his back garden and into the house. Following a free full survey of the flood risk to the property, we put in a quote for two Flood Ark barriers. One covering a standard entrance door, and one covering the wider french doors at the back of the property. 

Property Level Protection

Our barriers have been designed to protect homes from flash flooding, river flooding and coastal inundation. They can be assembled quickly and require no tools. As soon as the property owner gets warning that a flood is imminent, the strong but lightweight UPVC panels can be slotted into the permanently affixed aluminium frame.

Flood Ark barriers are the only barriers on the market that have been tested to a width of four metres, so if you are looking to protect french doors, garage entrances, patio doors, or bifold doors, Flood Ark should be your first port of call.

Mr Shepherd said:

“Many thanks Sally for a smooth operation throughout. You can tell the guys that with the installation on the 18th, on the 20th we had a practice run on putting the boards up. the meadow was starting to flood when it was beginning to get dark, and it might have continued all night – in fact it did not, but the reassurance was there.”
