This system is known as ‘passive technology’, a term that is becoming well known across the country with people beginning to embrace this method for their flood defence systems.
This cost effective solution is also suitable to use for Listed Buildings. According to strict stipulations no alterations or aesthetic changes are to be made to a Listed Building, because the passive flood defence system Mini and Midi are installed underground our design and build team are able to adapt the product as required, so we are within these guidelines.
An example of this is a recent installation we completed to a cottage in St Newlyn East, Cornwall. The idyllic Grade II Listed property had previously been victim to devastating floods, the solution was to install two passive flood defence system Midi’s in order to protect the cottage from the front and back entrance. Installed underground this meant no aesthetic changes were made to this beautiful Listed property. Click to read case study.
UKFB are due to start a project in Ledbury later next month, to provide and install passive flood mitigation to the local Rugby Club. After a survey it was decided the best measures to use would be a selection of Flood Angel® products alongside a number of passive flood defence system's. This specific project and its flood defence requirements has now led our team to develop the new passive flood defence system Midi but for 900mm.
Noman Farooqui, UKFB’s CAD and Design Engineer commented; ‘The new 900mm version will offer an alternative, cost effective solution to customers that require a size in between the range we currently offer, 600mm and 1200mm’
This is another example of how UKFB are structured to adapt and develop products for the purpose of customer requirements; we are always on hand to provide the best, most cost effective solution possible.
