Aquobex Floodguards

Floodguards provide the first protective flood door barrier to enter the market and achieve Kitemark accreditation in the year 2000, having since been installed across the UK in over 3,000 properties. The demountable flood barrier provides the same protection as a permanent barrier, but has the distinct advantage of being fully removable when not required.

Built with an arched dam design, the flood defence’s protective seal becomes stronger, the more pressure is applied from rising floodwater levels. Featuring a U-shaped back-frame, the barrier is easily mounted upon notification of flood warning, simply clipping onto a door or window opening. Aquobex provide similar flood control units available for airbricks, cat flaps and vents for single, double and treble airbricks and circular vents, in addition to custom-made, bespoke sizes.

Made from plastic or GRP (for larger models), Floodguard is lightweight giving ease of access to any user. The barrier is available in standard heights of 600mm or 900mm, and widths from 930mm to 2765mm. Custom sizes are also available. Back-frames are available in exact colour matches to the property for extra discretion, as well as our standard colours of red brick, grey, white and brown.
