AquaFence FloodWall is a leading, FEMA compliant, deployable flood barrier, used to secure commercial, municipal, and industrial properties throughout the world. The idea for AquaFence`s flood protection systems came to the Norwegian inventor, Thor Olav Rorheim, after a study trip to Amsterdam where with new inspiration and knowledge, drew the first sketches of the system known today as FloodWall. In 1997, Thor Olav started working with the Norwegian University of Life Sciences to develop what would be the base for now patented AquaFence system, FloodWall.
In 1999, AquaFence was founded with the same mission the company holds today; to provide state of the art deployable flood protection systems, which can be kept out of sight when not in use but are reliable in emergency situations.
AquaFence continues to develop its deployable flood mitigation systems in cooperation with national and international flood protection programs.
In 2013, AquaFence was awarded the highest level of ANSI Certification, following year-long testing of the V1200 FloodWall system by the US Army Corps of Engineers and FM Global.
Today, AquaFence is a global leader in deployable flood mitigation, delivering flood protection solutions to commercial, municipal, and industrial properties across Europe, North America, and Asia. AquaFence systems are protecting more than $30 billion worth of real estate in the United States alone.
AquaFence V1200, V1800, and V2100 systems have platinum level certifications from FM Approvals, the highest level given. FM approvals uses scientific research and testing to make sure products conform to the highest standards for safety and property loss prevention.
AquaFence’s patented design has led to many new and exciting innovative solutions in the flood protection industry, such as the AquaFence FlashWall and AquaFence Door Barrier.
