Flood Barriers’ Secrets Uncovered

August 29, 2017 | Created by: Andreas Klippe

Metal Barrier and drain plugs

We’ve been promoting (aggressively!) Flood Control Asia RS (FCA) and its flood barriers. Needless to say, we won’t do such if we’re not convinced that these flood barriers will work. Once more, we are opening this technology to all who are seeking for long-time solutions to flooding!

However, some of our patrons are asking if we’ve revealed everything we know about flood control. To those who raised that question, it’s timely to ask since we are now introducing two of our “secret weapons”.

We brand them as secret weapons because they work without you noticing them. Mind you, they come with our usual flood barriers; yet, no one has ever given them special attention!

Holding it Altogether: The Compression Clamps

We’ve always boasted that our products are all leak-free. Thanks to rubbers and tightly-sealed screws, our flood barriers are able to resist all sorts of outflows — down to the last drop.

But rubbers and sealants alone don’t make our barriers leak-free. We’re totally leak-free because of the compression clamps.

Manufactured from Germany, the compression clamps don’t simply hold the barriers in place. They give the barriers the right amount of pressure so they can be sealed tightly to prevent water leak.

How do they work?

These compression clamps are usually placed at both ends of flood barriers. After mounting the barriers, anchor the compression clamps on “clamp boxes” fixed at the topmost portion of side channels (the posts where the aluminum panels are inserted).

Then, increase the compression clamps’ pressure by tightening their screws (watch this video). As the screws tighten, the rubber seals between the aluminum panels — including the one at the bottom — will be compressed to prevent any liquid from seeping in.

Ooops! Before you go on, there’s more:

We mentioned that the compression clamps can be attached to side channels. In cases of large-scale installations, the compression clamps can also be attached on middle and corner posts. When placed in these posts, the clamps can support barriers that cover a larger area.

The compression clamps work effectively. We are also providing covers for the compression clamps, and we are advising you to put padlocks on them so they won’t be stolen.

Flush out your Worries: The Drain Plugs

Here comes the second “secret weapon”.

Though we’re specializing in flood control, we can also troubleshoot problems like minor leakage and clogging.

We’re proudly presenting the drain plugs — plastic blockages that work with expandable rubber. Simply put the plug in the hole where the water’s coming from and twist the screw to expand the rubber. The expanding rubber will block the entry point and will prevent the fluid from seeping in.

These plugs come in various sizes, enabling them to fit in any drainage system — toilets, gutters, and sinks. The smallest drain plug can block a waterway with a diameter of 2 inches. Other sizes (3, 4, 5, and 6 inches) can also be manufactured.

How sure are we that these trappings work?

What’s the guarantee that these two — the compression clamps and the drain plugs — will work well?

One reason is they are both German-engineered. Like the flood barriers, they are crafted through excellent technology.

Second, these two complete a total flood protection. As we’ve said, the compression clamps support the flood resiliency of the barriers. On the other hand, the drain plugs will allow you to block other entry points that the flood barriers cannot handle.

Invest in solutions that really work!

Complete your flood protection set with our compression clamps and drain plugs!

The compression clamps always come as part of our standard demountable barriers. Though the drain plugs are an optional feature, we are encouraging you to purchase them as well so you can have a complete battle gear!
