UK Flood Barriers have recently returned after completing a £750k project in Malaysia where a passive flood barrier has been adopted to protect a riverside zoo.
The barrier was adopted in Malaysia to help protect a Zoo in the town of Kemaman. Two barriers were manufactured and installed to entry points of the zoo to prevent a nearby river from flooding into the park causing disruption to visitors and more importantly, their permanent residents, the animals.
Designed and developed by UKFB CEO, Frank Kelly, the first generation passive flood barrier is a simple yet extremely effective flood defence system. Installed underground the barrier is operated via the flood water itself prompting the barrier to rise and create a 24/7 flood solution without the need of any human interaction.
Frank Kelly commented;
“Our global market is continuing to expand which is great news for the UK’s manufacturing industry. Working together with local companies, our passive barrier range is manufactured solely in the UK enabling UKFB to offer an end to end solution. As a company we thrive on expanding our portfolio of work on new and exciting projects and we are thrilled that the passive barrier can help to protect the animals in Kemaman Zoo!”
