Western Power Distribution is an electricity distribution network delivering power to the East and West Midlands, South West and South West Wales. Operating from 189000 sub stations across the UK, various flood defence measures have already been adopted to many at risk from flooding.
Hatton in Lincolnshire is one sub station where a need for flood defence was identified. Working on behalf of Western Power Distribution, North Midland Construction contacted UK Flood Barriers to determine the most appropriate measure.
The Steel Security Fire and Flood Door is the UK’s first kitemark certifed industrial door offering fire and flood protection whilst also acting as a 24/7 security door. Three doors in total were installed to entrances around the station.
