Project of the month - Flood Angel® range provides flood mitigation solutions for Natural Resources

Image

This month, our installation teams have been in Wales, installing a range of flood mitigation solutions to ten properties in the small town of Llanddowror.

I was very happy with how the project went, particularly regarding the speed with which the works were carried out as many residents are understandably concerned about further flooding as the winter weather approaches.

Combining the functions of the Countryside Council for Wales, Environment Agency Wales and Forestry Commission Wales, Natural Resources Wales work together with local communities to ensure residents and their homes are protected from environmental incidents such as flooding and pollution.

UKFB are on Natural Resources Wales preferred suppliers list, giving us the opportunity to be involved with local schemes when flood risks to properties are recognised. In Llanddowror, Carmarthenshire, ten properties in the flood catchment area were identified as high risk. Flood alleviation measures are already in place around the small town, however, further solutions were required for these specific properties.

Following a survey to each property, UKFB recommended products from the Flood Angel® range. These products hold the kitemark certification and include Flood Defender™ Barriers, Anti-Flood Airbricks and a Flood Defender™ Wall.

The demountable Flood Defender™ Wall is fully bespoke, able to span any width, and, for this project, was installed to protect a back conservatory entrance. Using a demountable post system, this product provides an effective flood mitigation solution for wider apertures.

Working together with a BPEC certified installer, this project was successfully completed in one week.
