All doors were secured at night by roller shutters which had substantial framing fixed to the brickwork; the brief was to provide unobtrusive fixings for the flood barriers with the least visual impact. Both entrance doors had to allow for wheeled access and provide no trip hazards. Barriers had to be able to be deployed quickly and efficiently even during services if necessary. With these requirements in mind, the Flood Angel® Flood Defender™ Barrier was specified for the project.
Two type D Defender Barriers with rails were installed to the main entrances and a third to protect the service door to the crematorium towards the rear of the building. The main doors had rails neatly fitted inside the door reveals whilst the service door had face fixed rails which were located to the outside of the shutter door framework.
