With flooding around the UK taking over the media and affecting thousands of people, UK Flood Barriers have appeared in the press over the past fortnight to get the message about property level protection solutions out to the nation.
Last month UKFB have featured on BBC News 24, BBC Midlands Today, BBC Radio 5 live’s breakfast show, BBC Radio Berkshire with Tony Blackburn, BBC Hereford & Worcestershire and Radio 4’s The Today Show, where CEO, Frank Kelly has been explaining the importance of passive property level protection and how these solutions can help homes and businesses around the UK.
UKFB are keen to spread the word of the UK’s already established capabilities in flood defence. With passive technology taking precedence over recent years, our very own Flood Angel® product range is able to say a firm farewell to the sandbag using intelligent, no human intervention flood defence solutions that require no people or power to operate.
UKFB have been working hard to promote our ethos, protection through education at a community level to help solve this global problem. In light of this UKFB are soon to launch the Flood Advisory Service to ensure passive flood protection is available in flood affected towns and cities.
To help support this community led initiative the BPEC accreditation for the installation of flood mitigation solutions was launched last year to give businesses around the UK the knowledge and expertise in flood defence to help serve their own local communities. This unique opportunity will allow small, medium or large organisations to have the skill set and knowledge to be able to market these passive flood defence solutions to property owners in their area. With over 20 companies around the UK now BPEC accredited, UKFB are keen to expand this to more flood hit areas.

With BBC coverage, UKFB have had some great opportunities to spread awareness of passive property level protection, and we hope to continue to spend our community focus into long term solutions for flood defence.
