- FloodBreak’s automatic flood barrier helps protect infrastructures from floods and hurricanes.
- This floodgate can work in flash floods and areas that are unprepared for natural disasters.
- Since it uses hydrostatic pressure of the flood water, the gate does not need to be controlled or operated by people.
- Watch the video above to see how FloodBreak can save communities from natural disasters.
Following is the transcript of the video.
This automatic floodgate can rise against floods.
The higher the water levels, the higher the gate will rise, until it reaches a 90° angle.
The barrier stands firmly against the flood water.
It was created by FloodBreak.
We’ve had gates that were deployed during Hurricane Harvey in Houston just recently that saved commercial buildings and shopping centers and hospitals.
We have gates that have saved buildings in flash floods in Colorado.
We’ve had buildings that have saved communities in river floods in the upper Midwest.
The way it works is it’s a floating panel.
It’s structural. It’s incredibly strong, but it lays in the ground.
And it’s so simple. It just floats up.
It literally just floats up and closes the entrance, seals the entrance, creates a wall in front of the entrance that the water cannot go through.
