MEDIA

Our passive flood defence barrier got extensive press & TV coverage including BBC Countryfile when 9 million viewers witnessed how the barrier worked so successfully to protect homes in Cockermouth. TV coverage clearly demonstrated how, unlike other ‘reactive’ systems it wasn’t overtopped or damaged & was back up and running the next day. Click here to read further about how the passive flood defence barrier helped to minimise damage in Cockermouth.

WATCH THIS SPACE

And as if that wasn’t enough, Spring 2016 will see the launch of the Industry’s first Insurance backed flood protection scheme in partnership with one of the World’s leading specialist insurers.
