Passive Vertical Rising Barriers

Resting Position

In non-flood conditions, all operational parts of the barrier are concealed in the underground basin.

Deploying

When floodwater rises to within a predetermined level below flood level, the basin housing the floating wall starts to fill up through an inlet pipe from the adjacent service pit.

Fully Deployed

The flood wall floats and rises. When the basin is totally filled, the angled support block will lock the barrier into position making it watertight.

Piecemeal Approach

I alluded to this earlier in the “understanding principals” section Flood Resilient Repair can be expensive When working to tight budgets focus on the core infrastructure of the property and prioritise

  1. Kitchen – the heart of the home
  2. Bathroom
  3. Sleeping accommodation, if on ground floor
  4. Living space

Piecemeal – but with an overall plan

  • If installing flood barriers, ensure they tie-in to internal wall protection solutions – don’t leave any gaps
  • BEFORE installing floodproof kitchen carcasses ensure the wall behind them is not going to need replacing in the next flood – M02 boards – NOT Gypsum board
  • Manage the boundaries between rooms for an easy pick-up on phase 2, 3, etc.
  • Plan locations of sump pumps
  • they may not be in the room you are renovating
