Flood Ark

Farm Cottage, Keswick, Cumbria

At Flood Ark we specialise in the installation of Kitemark accredited flood barriers. Before undertaking the fitting of any of our barriers, we carry out a thorough risk assessment of your property to identify potential flooding threats – something that allows us to select the most appropriate combination of barriers for the job.

We have barriers available to protect your entrance doors, windows, gateways, air bricks, garages and perimeter walls. However, sometimes it is necessary to bring the installation of your barriers indoors. It may be that you want to provide protection for high value equipment, protect lift shafts and basements, or just create an additional level of protection. Whatever your needs, our engineers can assist.

A total of £110,000 was spent reinstating the kitchen and utility room of the property, and as part of the work our engineers fitted internal and external barriers to provide protection for:
