Tested and certified by FM Global

We know how important it is for you or your organization to have the best anti flood system on the market. That’s why we have chosen to certify our products as FM Approved, by FM Global, one of the most widely accepted certifications in our industry.

The Water-Gate water barrier has undergone intensive testing to assess deployment speed, resilience, watertightness, and resistance to waves. Our FM Approved certification was performed in real time with all WL models exceeding 1m high have been tested and certified.

The tests were conducted in a test basin at the US Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM), the US Army Corps of Engineers, and FM Global as part of a national testing and certification program for anti-flood products.

Water-Gate Barrier

The Water-Gate is a temporary flood barrier which is unique in the way that, once rolled out, it self-deploys.

It uses the weight of the water to hold the water back. The water lifts the top of the barrier whilst at the same time weighing the base down, forming a seal. By utilising this unique self-opening method, it reduces the time, effort and number of people required to install it.

We believe the system can provide an efficient and effective fast response resource when dealing with emergency response situations.

The flood barriers are already used by homeowners, water companies the Environment Agency, and anyone with assets to protect.

Water-Gates have recently been awarded FM approval.
