About us

Allups Ltd develop & offer Floodlock brand innovative, low cost, effective and useful products to help you manage unexpected incidents, independently.

Why we invented Floodlock Door Protection Strips.

In 2007 the British government commissioned Pitt review reported the following in ther executive summary 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. 

Floodlock Door Protection Strips were invented to reduce dependency on sandbags it its many limitations and to empower every single one of us including children to take action in preparation for flood. Reasearch as since shown that if we do not take action and in effect "agree" to become victims we learn a helplessness that is damaging to our mental health and adds to the emotional trauma flood victims face. This is especially true of children who cannot be expected to build a wall out of 10 x 15kg sandbags in front of a door so are forced to wait for assistance while they feel quite helpless and vulnerable. 

Why we invented Floodlock Soak Up Pads, some great applications.

Watching a Gas engineer fold an incontinence pad over to fit above the electrics and PCB before servicing a boiler we thought we could do better, with a more compact and better sealed pad.

Floodlock® 175 Soak Up Pads are lined with plastic to be sure that the surface (bottom) remains dry. We then noticed people started using them as hanging basket liners, flexible alternatives to buckets for catching drips and even as cold packs for bruises…. 

Why we invented Floodlock Wet Mess Clean Up Powder

After my then toddler daughter suffered from frequent episodes of car sickness, we simply could not wait until the end of each journey to clean up the car. Despite out best efforts on route the stench often distracted us from fully enjoying the planned experience. Blended to remove not only water based but also greasy (milky) vomit with a pleasant fresh fragrance we developed Floodlock® Wet Mess Clean Up Powder.  Friends, family, teachers and the odd buyer started to tell us it was quite unique and very effective. They asked us if we could make it available to help anyone faced with a need to restore an area to use without leaving a slippery residue or unpleasant smell whether a family, a schools or anyone really who wants to reduce the risk of slips and trips and so help them comply with health and safety legislation. 

Of course no one really likes or wants to face situations that threaten our homes, cars, family and health. We believe our Floodlock range can help you just then, when you are looking for a quick fix to reduce the significant damage life's unpredictable events can cause.

Thank you for choosing to try our products. We hope you benefit and share what you have found with your friends, family and colleagues so they can benefit too. Please do let us know what you think by e-mail ...  and please visit us again soon.
