Southampton City Council asked UK Flood Barriers to tender for the project, after deciding our product range was the most appropriate for this scheme. We were awarded the contract to provide flood mitigation, beginning with the two homes identified for the pilot project.
Following initial surveys, a selection of Flood Angel® products were identified as the most appropriate measures to use, including Flood Defender™ Barriers, Anti-Flood Airbricks, 50mm Backwater Valves and sumps and pumps.
As part of the community’s actions to protect homes from flooding, a website was created to provide access to useful information. The installation process was documented by one of the homeowners in this initial pilot scheme and uploaded to the site as an example of a working project and products in situ.

This scheme has been set up to encourage property owners in the area to take action against flooding in the future.
