Flood Prevention Products



Flood Barriers

From simple slot-in ‘stop-log’ water barriers to fully automatic barriers that operate only when required, FCI designs flood barriers with flood protection heights up to 13ft and unlimited length.

Automatic flood barriers can operate to self-raise with the rising flood water or be push button operated so that the flood barrier can be operated in advance of floods with full peace of mind. They can also be manually operated as required.
