In recent years we have experienced more and more extreme weather conditions which have caused damage and devastation to the environment and local infrastructure.
BL/HSW-SB at work, designed to protect private and commercial assets from rising floodwaters and mud.
The BL/HSW-SB, a fully demountable Flood Protection System responds to this need, according to Blobel. It is designed to protect private and commercial assets from rising floodwaters and mud.
The Flood Protection System (type BL/HSW-SB pictured) consists of several hollow aluminium segments which are placed into U-shaped or double U-shaped steel columns. The devices are designed to be either demountable or permanently anchored in place. The Flood Defense System is custom built to fit the required retention height and width and can be universally applied to doors, gates and retention walls in open areas.
Stability with high water pressure
Depending on water flow and sealing direction, the Blobel BL/HSW-SB Flood Protection segments are designed to fill with water. This considerably increases stability of the Flood Defense System. The System is available in 50mm and 80mm wide designs.
A compressible, highly adaptable seal is attached at the lowest barrier section. Each other barrier section is fitted with an easily compressed seal based on EPDM. Generally, it is not necessary to level the floor or incorporate steel plates within the concrete floor. Uneven ground, corrugated sheet metal, tiles and stones up to 20mm are handled with ease.
During stand by time the system is easily stored. The Flood Protection System is designed to use as little space as possible and the segments can be stored on walls using specifically designed racks.
