Flood Management

Rubber dams and pneumatic gates have a number of uses in flood management.

They are an ideal replacement for hard structures such as stone weirs. During periods of high flow they can be deflated removing the obstruction which might cause flooding. Their low profile means that they look very similar to a weir once water is flowing over them.

We have supplied dams that can be inflated to protect vulnerable areas from flooding. Pneumatic gates can be used can be used to divert water into storage areas and washlands, or to control the arrival of flood water downstream. We can also supply a roadway gate designed to protect underground car parks and other infrastructure during flooding.
