Tried and tested - The system has been tested at HR Wallingford’s world leading flood product testing facility in simulated flood conditions and we were awarded the latest Kitemark standard in November 2014; we were first awarded our Kitemark Licence in February 2004. More importantly over the past decade we have proven that our system can not only withstand the demands of leading test facilities but also that, when faced with real life flood scenarios it prevented our customers from flooding.
The survey is FREE of charge. We will assess all your property openings and make recommendations. We will also tell you about your risks of backwater sewer flooding. We will then provide you with a written quotation with no obligation to purchase.
The boards are lightweight and no individual board weighs over 12 kilograms [2500mm (8ft) example]
Very easy, because no tools are required to assemble the system; the flood boards are lightweight so can be used by people of all abilities. Once the flood boards have been retrieved from storage it takes no more than 5 minutes to deploy one barrier.
For our barriers to work, it is equally important how well they are installed. We have experienced fitters, two of which are now in their tenth year of employment with Flood Ark. This experience is invaluable as no two properties are the same.
No, experienced Flood Ark employees install all of our barriers systems.
The majority of systems are set in flush with the floor so there is no trip hazard. This requires us to excavate the ground and cast the base of the barrier frame in with concrete. We then make good any paving, brick weave, slabs, stone or timber decking, leaving just a neat cover treadplate.
An established reputation since 2002 and a quality system that works. We have carried out thousands of installations to protect openings of all shapes and sizes. We pride ourselves on the service we provide at enquiry, survey, installation and subsequent customer support.
Not all flood protection products are equal If you are going to spend hard earned cash be careful to choose products that will work. Kitemarked products are a good starting point but it is equally important how well they are installed. If you do decide to use a competitor make sure you check they have the latest Kitemark PAS 1188:2014, ask to see a copy of their Licence. Unfortunately there are some unscrupulous suppliers who say their products exceed the Kitemark standard but without any type of accreditation.
Yes, we have many examples of customers who have had a flood claim but been able to reduce their renewal premium / policy excess for flooding by installing our Kitemarked flood protection systems.
We give a three year no quibble parts and labour product guarantee. This can be extended by choosing to have the system serviced by our team of engineers, we will then extend the guarantee by a further three years.
