Automatic Flip-Up Flood Barrier

Fully Automatic Flood Barriers that fully recess into the ground.


Automated Flip-Up flood barriers efficiently protects the historical buildings from flash floods.

Designed to provide totally unrestricted access to pedestrian and vehicle entrances, this self-raising flood barrier is fully recessed in to the ground when not in use.


A range of surface finishes is available; from skid resistant epoxy coatings to timber cladding or paving to fit in with the external hard landscaping.

These flood barriers can rise automatically with the rising flood waters or by push button in advance keeping you in control for complete peace of mind. Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) and manual backups mean these barriers will not let you down.


A single system can protect openings up to 12m wide (39 ft.) and multiple systems can be linked with intermediate posts to create a flood defense run of almost any length. Depending on span, flood defense heights of up to 2m (6.5ft.) are available.


Movement and weight sensors prevent the barriers opening if the entrance is obstructed whilst optional audio/visual alarms sound prior to and during operation.

Optional 24 volt back-up systems are available for use in the event of mains failure and permanently installed security grates cover the housing pit – serving as both a safety platform for traffic and pedestrians and as protection for the hydraulic system while the barrier remains raised.

These barriers are designed for pedestrian and vehicle entrances, or anywhere where unrestricted level access is required.
