US NATIONWIDE FLOOD BARRIER INSTALLATION AVAILABLE!
Our flood barriers are designed for quick and easy deployment:
Flood Ark protection systems are suitable for building openings, doors, patio doors, windows, garages and gateways. The Flood Ark barrier can be installed in residential properties, commercial buildings and retails centers, and public buildings. The aluminium barrier frame along with the specially developed closed cell PVC foam gasket ensures a watertight seal to almost any surface, even rough or damaged brickwork. The seals are also impervious to weathering, including salt water, and ultra-violet rays. Flood Ark's powder-coated frames are aesthetically pleasing, unobtrusive and non-corrosive. The lightweight, yet extremely strong uPVC extruded boards which are attached manually to the frame to create the watertight barrier are reusable, require no tools, so are easy for people of all abilities to assemble and dismantle. Each board is only 7 3/4″ in height, and may be added or removed one at a time as flood water rises or recedes; giving maximum protection and accessibility to your property.
To achieve optimal performance from your removable flood barriers, store them correctly when not in use. Our wall-mounted racks can be installed in a garage or outbuilding so that you can store your flood boards where they will not be an obstruction. Alternatively, for larger properties and commercial premises, we can also install a choice of custom fabricated storage containers, racks, and sheds.

The water got under the front glass door seals and just an inch deep of water went down the stairwell and entered the elevator shaft and the server room. After consulting with FEMA, the Emergency Manager reached out to Flood Ark USA for a solution. Flood Ark USA surveyed the site and analyzed the water entry points. It was determined that installing a Flood Ark Flood Barrier to protect the front entrance would solve the problem. The flood barrier that was installed will protect this critical building from future flooding. The facility staff was amazed by how easy the barriers can be deployed and removed in just minutes with no tools. Flood Ark USA also installed a hurricane shutter over the glass front entrance to prevent hurricane driven debris from breaking the glass above the flood barrier.
