About us

Distressed by news of people’s lives being devastated by floods and aware we would face more extreme weather events including flooding as a result of climate change in 2012 we read the UK government commissioned Pitt review executive summary, to understand their authoritative assessment of how Britain as a nation should better prepare following the summer 2007 floods.

It informed everyone in ES.49 that although strategic sandbagging by experts alongside roads and adjacent to important buildings was helpful, they could find no significant evidence that it was effective in providing protection to individual households. It went on in ES.50 to say that although sandbagging brought communities together in their battle against localised flooding the general provision of sandbags should be phased out in favour of better products … other forms of temporary defence.

Understanding this and that insurance simply cannot compensate fully nor can we expect infrastructure to work 100% of the time we decided to develop quick and easy to use low-cost products people cannot easily make to help themselves that could make a real difference in their battle to protect their homes, families and places of work from all surface level floods.

We founded Allups Ltd in 2012 to address flood issues in the most practical common sensical way, with low environmental impact, to enable everyone to better protect themselves against personal loss, damage and post traumatic mental illnesses.

We believe damage repair is the most expensive option, far better to reduce the pain and time to recover by protecting our property, family and business in advance.

So guided by our desire to help we developed our small range of products to reduce flood damage to property whether from external or internal water floods and leaks, and reduce the risk of injury - from slips and trips on wet surfaces and from mould, bacterial and viral infections that quickly grow on wet and contaminated surfaces.

Benefits from our products go beyond the expected, for example leak and spill traps can be used to line hanging baskets and provide nourishment to pot plants, they can also be used as a cold pack or even once quickly microwaved as a warmer to help defrost a car.

We very much hope to help you safeguard against natural disasters from flood storms to monsoons, typhoons, hurricanes and exceptionally high tides ... to simple spills and other accidents that may make an area unsafe.

Please feel free to drop us a line to let us know what your experiences with our products are, so we can share them with others who may benefit.
