Issue

Flood hazard

An increased flood hazard because the flood defence does not meet the requirements and/or due to extreme conditions.

If, because of external factors, water safety cannot be guaranteed temporarily, or there is no temporary water storage available, one has to act quickly. In a short amount of time, a flood defense construction will have to be placed to keep the hinterland from flooding.

Solution

BoxBarrier

This construction is made out of linked boxes filled with water, which form a flood defense barrier. It can be used to quickly place or heighten a flood defense system. The water stopping height is 0,5 meters without buttresses.
