Single System

A single system can protect openings as wide as 12m while 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 are available. Movement and weight sensors prevent the barriers from closing in if the entrance is obstructed while optional audio/visual alarms sound prior to and during operation.
