More than four years on Floodstop is still successfully protecting the reception and walkway areas on Brownsea Island, Poole, UK.
Brownsea Island is situated in a large harbour and is at risk from powerful tidal surges throughout the year. Floodstop was purchased by The National Trust in 2010 as flood defence measure. Since 2010 the Floodstop flood barrier has protected assets from tidal flooding on several occasions.
Back in 2010, Angela Cott; The National Trust Property Manager at Brownsea Island said:
“We are delighted that we now have an easy to deploy flood prevention system on the island. It will allow us to protect our newly refurbished reception when we have exceptionally high tides. We were completely fed up with deploying sandbags in the past. The barrier was in action today [Sept 2010] and prevented flooding of the walkway and reception. It’s fantastic.”
