Airbrick covers are a reactive product, i.e. require manual deployment ahead of a flood event.
There are a number of Anti-flood Airbrick Covers on the market that utilise a range of materials and fixing techniques. They are manufactured in standard single or double or bespoke sizes.
Airbrick covers are a cost effective solution to stop the ingress of water. They are easy to deploy, taking only minutes to install.
We only recommend & install Anti Flood Airbrick covers that hold a Kitemark.
It is important to remember Anti Flood Airbrick covers and vent guards used for gas or solid fuel appliances should only be used when they have been approved by a Gas Safe Engineer*. They should only be deployed when a flood event is imminent, and during this time your appliance must not be used. When the threat of flooding has subsided, the Anti Flood Airbrick cover or vent guard should be removed. Click here to read advice on flooding from Gas Safe Register.
