Project of the Month – Bespoke Doors Offer the Ideal Solution for Housing Association

Image

This month our installation team have been in the North East working on behalf of the UK’s 4th largest housing provider.

From my side the initial dealings in terms of exploring options on what passive measures we can provide at this scheme, I found UK Flood Barriers were very supportive throughout in helping to determine the right solution.

With over 55,000 properties throughout the UK, the Home Group provide quality and affordable housing on a large scale. UKFB worked together with their team in Haltwhistle, Northumberland, to provide flood mitigation measures to 16 homes at risk of flooding.

The Home Group wanted to invest in the latest products on the market, including replacement doors for both the front and rear of properties. Following initial market research and looking at examples of our work completed for Northumberland County Council, the Home Group awarded UKFB the contract to protect those homes at risk.

In the final stages of development at the point of project go ahead, the Flood Angel® Flood Defender™ Door offered the Home Group the latest development in flood mitigation that they were so keen to utilise.

Having undergone extensive testing to ensure performance and obtaining 3 Kitemarks to PAS 1188-1:2009, it provided the ideal solution for the 31 front and rear doorways identified as requiring flood protection. With the ability to manufacture the door to bespoke requirements for single, inward and outward opening doors, as well as double outward opening doors, the Flood Defender™ Door provided the perfect solution for the homes in Haltwhistle.

At the initial survey stage UKFB recommended a range of solutions for the 16 homes requiring flood protection. As previous flooding events were the result of surface water run-off from neighbouring streets and fields, our surveyors specified passive measures for both the airbricks and drainage systems, to work effectively alongside the replacement doors.

Successfully completed this month, the UKFB installation team worked with local BPEC certified installers, PF Burridge, to ensure project delivery on time and to a high quality.

31 Flood Angel® Flood Defender™ Doors were fitted in total, working together with a number of Anti-Flood Airbricks, bespoke vent covers, adaptable 160mm/110mm Non-Return Valves and also 50mm Backwater Valves, to provide a comprehensive solution.
