FloodStop - is a rapidly deployable barrier that is used throughout the UK to protect utilities, businesses and households at risk from flooding. The Environment Agency has successfully used this technology on several occasions. Our principal technology is the award-winning Floodstop & FloodBlock modular flood barriers. These patented flood defence systems actually fill with the rising flood waters to create effective flood protection. Our flood barriers can be easily deployed to prevent flood waters from entering a small opening (such as a driveway) to much larger areas (such as a tidal promenades or river banks).

According to The Environment Agency, 1 in 6 UK homes are at risk of flooding. Our flood barrier systems provide vital protection against rising water and could save you thousands of pounds.

Floodstop & FloodBlock modular flood barriers are more cost effective reliable than ineffective sandbags. Sandbags leak excessively - we do not recommend their use for flood protection.
