UKFB were approached by Robertson’s Facilities Services and were asked to carry out an initial survey on the building for budgetary purposes. Once approval was given, a short presentation was conducted to centre staff and a representative from Newcastle City Council to demonstrate the ease of which the barriers are deployed.
Flood Angel® Flood Defender™ Barriers were installed into reveal fixed type D to protect the main entrance and a second to protect the outward opening side fire exit door and glazed side panel. The Defender™ Barrier rails were also grey powder coated to match the existing door frames.
Twelve airbricks were replaced with Flood Angel® Anti-Flood Airbricks and, following a client request, locking devices were incorporated into the rail system to prevent unauthorised removal after being deployed.
