Has a local authority or Government body like the UKs Environment Agency told you to expect floods due to heavy rain, rising river levels or high tide with strong winds or storms?. Flood Traps can do the job of the 10-14 x 15kg bags of sand you usually use to build a leaky wall like barrier in front of your robust door, and if belt and braces is your preference you can use both.
In further tests the strips were seen not to leak for days working well as long as they remain wet and in position until the flood waters drain away.
Operations Director Paul Hendy at the independent Scottish Flood Forum reported Flood Traps were "tested & worked perfectly" when he saw how they kept water out of 4 homes in Glasgow. He went on to say they are an "Outstanding Success" and will bring benefit to many in need of an affordable alternative to sandbags.
Flood Traps kept contaminated overflowing drain water from entring through gaps around the doors on 4 properties in North Glasgow in November 2014 far better and more affordably than all previously tried solutions.
Images of distance from front door to the ground 13cm (5") to 30cm (1ft) that bags of sand and quick dams needlesly cover before they get to the door where high pressure forces contaminated flood water through.
Image of stagnant water, not flowing through a door in a test facility compared to that trying to get into a
drain following a heavy downpour of rain but overflowing as is seen more and more commonly as our
Image of Flood Traps being examined after protecting 4 houses from surface flood in Glasgow and of the
inside of one of the homes, previously flooded but kept dry this time thanks to Floodlock Flood Traps you
can see in position around the door and its frame.
The water activated soft water-proof gel quickly swells within each length of flood trap boosting your door's seal against flood water pressure, it continues to help keep water at bay until it dries out or until the door is opened. Here you can see how much the wet portion of the Flood Trap strip has swollen while the portion trapped in the door remained thin and dry.
This image shows just how little you would throw away, compared to several sandbags.
As flood water pressure presses on the soft swollen water proof gel strips they are squeezed into the gaps between the door and the frame.
Now instead of flood water pressure forcing water through gaps around your doors it helps Floodlock strips seal it out!
While kept dry, Floodlock Door Protection Strips can be stored in a draw for years, always ready to help you prepare for a flood whenever you need them.
Once used Floodlock strips can be buried or disposed of as household waste.
Each of the three strips in a pack absorbs 2 Litres of water, so can be used to soak up leaks, spills or flood incidents indoors and in hard to reach areas too!
Buy them now, before you need them and be ever ready to reduce water damage and recovery time whenever the next flood strikes - whatever the source.
Here you can see Flood Traps protecting a window sill from condensed water on the windows, a washing machine leak when the filter is blocked and defrosting fridge freezer leaking water that would otherwise create a slip hazard on the floor.
