With the prevalence of inland and coastal flooding on the rise, the use of flood protection products are a must for municipalities and homeowners. As we enter 2020, there are a number of different flood protection barriers on the market. Which flood barriers are the most effective? And which are worth your money?
Look no further than our list of the best flood protection barriers available in 2020:
Quik-Response is a flood barrier system used by municipal response crews and individuals alike. These self-expanding sandbags are initially compact & lightweight, allowing for convenient storage, quick transportation to the flood-site and even faster deployment. Upon contact with floodwater, Quik-Response grows in both size and mass, forming an effective barrier against flooding. We have chosen Quik-Response over other “sandless sandbags” such as Quick-Dams and Floodsax, due to the reliability of the brand, its superior performance, and lowest pricing on the market.
The Heritage Flood guard is as effective defense system used to prevent flood water from entering doors and windows. It’s a great option for homeowners with low-sitting doors and windows.
Water-Gate is a PVC flood control device that uses the force of oncoming water to stabilize itself. While more expensive than sandbags, it has been proven to be a highly effective means of containing flood damage. A single person can deploy the product in a few hours to protect a home, or larger devices can be purchased to protect entire areas and unrolled trucks.
The easy-to-use, durable, and reusable HydraBarrier solution protects valuable assets from water damage. HydraBarrier is an effective alternative to sand bags when it comes to spill containment and similar water containment and prevention applications. These water barriers are durable, come in a variety of sizes, are reusable, and can be filled when needed and emptied once used.
Garadry threshold seals prevent leaves, dust, sand and debris from entering the garage as well as protect against drafts, wind-blown rainwater, standing water, cold air and snow.
The threshold seals are made from high-strength PVC to form a completely watertight barrier when installed with Garadry adhesive and serve as a superior alternative to rubber seals as they are UV resistant. They are 100% recyclable, odourless and will not rot, decay or lose their colour with prolonged exposure to water or sunlight.
The seals also prevent critters and small animals from entering through the gap under your garage door.
