Protecting lives and properties from floods:
The catastrophic effects of the floods the UK has experienced in the last few years have shown how many buildings are inadequately protected against the consequence of such natural events.
Flood waters and mudslides can often put lives and livelihoods at risk and may cause high direct and indirect financial costs.
The patented ASD WaterStop flood protection system offers the ability to create effective bulkheads to seal off openings in endangered buildings. Conventional systems and techniques for holding back water or mud often provide inadequate security, especially if doors or windows are subject to increasing pressure over long periods of time, as for example, from rising water.
However, ASD WaterStop flood protection system is extremely watertight and guarantees effective sealing for all kinds of openings in external walls.
Designed on a modular basis, ASD WaterStop is universally applicable: it enables components to be installed quickly whenever flood warnings are communicated, adapting to different wall thickness and surrounding masonry.
