Flood Barriers and Flood Protection
for Businesses, Local Authorities and Utilities
According to the Association of British Insurers, during a flood season the UK insurers process around 1000 claims each day. The average payout for those claims was around £18,000.
Would this be enough to cover for downtime and to get your business back up and running? Unfortunately, statistics show that 40% of small businesses that suffer flood damage never recover. Make sure your business has the appropriate flood defences in place so that your business is not affected.
Fluvial Innovations works closely with businesses, local authorities and utility companies to ensure appropriate flood defences are in place whenever a flood warning arises.
When flood warnings are issued, speed is the key. The responsibility to act often falls to emergency planning departments to try to ensure that there is adequate flood protection to keep their communities and assets safe.
THE BENEFITS OF OUR FLOOD BARRIERS INCLUDE
Quick To Deploy
Rapidly deployable flood defence system that can be assembled by one or two people
A highly effective system with a lower cost and vastly superior flood protection than sandbags
Self-balancing with no bolting required. Wall connections can be made with ease
Easy to store
Recyclable, reusable and can be used as leverage to gain flood insurance
Floodstop and FloodBlock™ barriers have been sold to local authorities, government bodies and utilities companies. We have supplied well over 10 miles of flood barriers to hundreds of customers in the UK.
The system provides a real solution to the struggles that emergency planners face when dealing with flood prevention issues.

"We are using the system and it is working great; Floodstop is keeping our platform and car park open and safe to our customers and colleagues during recent extreme weather and associated flooding"
Matthew Lee, First Great Western
Jackson Civils carry out contracting for The Environment Agency. A large proportion of their work is to build or repair permanent flood defence walls. During the works there is an innate flood risk due to the removal of the existing flood wall; Floodstop is deployed to ensure a robust, proven flood barrier system is in place protecting at risk locations during the construction works.
"We are delighted that we now have an easy to deploy flood preventionsystem 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."
Angela Cott, National Trust Property Manager at Brownsea Island
Our 0.9m and 0.5m high Floodstop barriers have been supplied to many nuclear sites in the UK and USA. As an example, at a UK nuclear site which is being decommissioned, our 0.9m high Floodstop system has been supplied to create a perimeter defence barrier to protect various assets from the perceived risk of flooding. Our systems are deployed on a permanent basis or as a rapid response barrier if a spillage or flood occurs.
“The project protects a low-lying area that often floods in heavy rain when sewers and storm drains overflow.”
ABC7 News Anchor
In response to the devastating Cockermouth floods of 2009 the Environment Agency and its contractors have been working on temporary and fixed barrier solutions to mitigate against future flood events. Fluvial Innovations have provided a significant quantity of flood barrier to protect a number of locations prior to permanent defences being built to protect from flooding.
“Flooding does set us back, we need industry here. With this system (Floodstop) we will give more people the belief they can come and set up businesses here”
Joe Trussler, Mayor of Sandwich
“This was a great opportunity for the community to test the deployment (Floodstop) of the defences whilst also testing the response of the Environment Agency and local Town Council Volunteers. The day was a great success and the exercise has helped us to ensure the process is as efficient as possible to reduce flood risk in the area”
Aysha Musson, the asset performance engineer for the Environment Agency
