Flood Traps - help keep floods out



Floodlock Flood Traps (aka Floodlock Door Protections Strips) are easily trapped between your door or window and its frame. Once wet they swell to create a water proof barrier boosting the seal around your door or window against high flood water pressure until the floods drain away. 

A great way to protect your property from surface flood water damage pouring in from the street through gaps around your sturdy front, back or basement door or window.

Floodlock Flood Traps,

are your easiest, best value for money way to protect your property from surface flood water damage pouring in from the street against your sturdy front, back or basement door or window.

After the devastating summer 2007 floods the most authoratitive Pitt Review commissioned by the British Government reported:

"ES.49 ‘Strategic sandbagging’ can be successfully used alongside roads or adjacent to important buildings to prevent them from flooding, but the work needs to be done properly by experts. The Review was unable to obtain any significant evidence that sandbags were particularly effective during the 2007 summer floods in providing protection to individual households.
ES.50 Nevertheless, sandbags are still widely regarded as an important focus for community action and they should not simply be withdrawn. The general provision of sandbags should be phased out in favour of better products such as kite-marked flood boards, air brick covers and other forms of temporary defence."

So sandbags are ineffective or household use. Each weighs about 15kg when dry, 25kgs when wet and you need 10 - 14 filled sand bags to build a barrier 0.5m in front of a door yet we continue to rely on them even though the better alternative Pitt said should replace them now exists in the form of Flood Traps.
Inflateable sandbags absorb water and are virtually are as heavy as the water itself.  FEMA, the USA's Federal Emergency Management Agency, says 12 inches (30.5cms) will float many vehicles, it should be no surprise then that inflaetable sandbags in all their formats unless fixed like Flood Traps are prone to being carried away with flood water. 

Floodlock Flood Traps help your robust door and window resist flood water pressure for a fraction of the price. Each pack of Floodlock® Flood Traps makes it easy for you, school aged children and the elderly to obstruct floods from entering though gaps around sturdy doors and windows. One pack typically provides protection against 0.63m (25") to 0.8m (31") deep flood, depending on the width of the door and the height of the door step. You can simply use more packs for bigger openings, for protection against deeper floods and for basement doors. Flood Traps are:-

  1. Ideal against all surface floods, even tidal and coastal floods.

  2. Empowering and so easy to use a child or pensioner could fit them without risking a hernia.

  3. Ever ready until wet & small enough to store in a draw.

  4. Easily disposed of as household waste or buried. 

  5. Independently proven effective on test & in real life,  Visit the news and articles page for examples.

  6. Ultra lightweight 100 grams per 60 cm strip when dry length, max 2kg when wet

  7. Suitable for use with doors and windows including basement doors - just use more product to extend the seal boosting effect over a larger area.

How use Flood Traps - DIY Flood Door Kits - to better seal your robust outside doors against flood water pressure.

Place one length in the doorframe, at the bottom. Use the sticky tabs to help you position and hold the strips up the sides of the door so the three lengths in the pack along the bottom and up the sides of your door (or window) frame. Then shut that door. You can use more to run them all the way across the top of a door to boost the seal on a basement door for example. Rapidly swelling to create a waterproof gel when wet a single pack used on a typical UK size door will boost protection against 0.5m (20") deep floodwater, plus the height of any door steps, so typically 2ft / 61cms.  Against saline water floods just fold each strip in half parallel to the long side and wet half the folded width of the strips with tap water first, then trap the dry part between the door and the frame.

Floodlock Leak and Spill Traps 

Why leave dangerously slippery drops or pools of water on the floor when you can trap them and remove the hazard painlessly? Leak & Spill Traps have a plastic water proof face to ensure the surface beneath is not water damaged and a super absorbent material above that uses water to create a drip proof gel. Some example uses of wet pads include as a reservoir to feed hanging baskets and potted plants, when chilled to make a cold pack for sprains and bruises, when warm to help defrost cars ... or you can simply bin them once they have soaked up any unwanted water. 

  1. Securely catch, soak and remove dirty spills and leaks from even the most awkward-to-reach areas!
  2. Soak up to 1.75 Litres (3 Pints) of water based fluid per 20cm (7") x 30cm (11") pad.
  3. Water & feed thirsty plants so they look healthier, being more resistant to drying out & wilting.
  4. Wet and chilled, they make great flexible cold packs whether to keep food and drinks chilled or to place on a bruise or sprain.
  5. Wet with lukewarm water you can use them to deice a car, move the warm pack over the ice and snow and wipe off the melted water.
  6. Flexible blue plastic base stays dry, protecting anything it touches from water damage.
