Floodmate ? the advanced solution to surface water flooding

by | Aug 25, 2017 | News, Product News, Products | 0 comments

Two business men Andy Pedrick and Gino Abate have created a revolutionary product ? an emergency flooding barrier that takes only 30mins to install, and can be used to protect against expensive flood damage for a number of different applications.

This state-of-the-art product is quick and easy to install, and can be used just about anywhere, it is suitable for front doors, back doors, garages, sheds, gates, driveways, businesses or anywhere else that is vulnerable.

With global climate change, flooding is becoming more frequent and less predictable and in many areas there is not the infrastructure for permanent flood prevention. In 2009, local business owner Andy Pedrick was concerned for the victims of the floods, how their personal life was severely disrupted and their personal belongings were destroyed or lost as a result of low-level surface water flooding.

Thinking about how this could be avoided without people committing large sums of money and without having hinges and fittings permanently attached to buildings, he devised Floodmate. He began the design and development of the idea by working with Gino Abate, a professional Product Designer from Bournemouth who has been using his creative thinking to develop products for many years. With this knowledge of flood damage and engineering experience they created Floodmate.

Floodmate takes minimal time to install, the creation works by using water pressure and smart polymers to create a seal with your house/business wall and the ground, to create a barrier to stop water seeping through. This can then protect from up to 300mm of water. When no longer needed it can be easily emptied, removed and folds up for convenient storage and reuse.

Said Andy Pedrick, Inventor and Co-Director of Floodmate, ?We wanted to create a ground-breaking product that is quick and easy to use, affordable and suitable for all types of businesses and homes in the result of a flash flood.

Floodmate is proven to be the perfect solution for an emergency flood barrier and can also be used to divert water away from exposed areas. It is available in various designs and sizes to suit your required area and its non-permanent fixture means it can be used for multiple purposes.?
