Light weight and compact in storage - your organisation's flood protection equipment will spend most of its service life stored in readiness for a flood. Whole of life cost - storage cost is an important consideration. Photograph right - each pallet contains a 25m flood barrier complete with pump connections, lifting strops and connection collar. Each barrier weighs around 170kg empty and 70 tonnes when deployed as a flood barrier.

Palletised - for ease of handling and shelf style storage most European AquaDam operators store their flood barriers on pallets.

Loose - Stored loose in a 20ft shipping container will allow operators to hold around 1000m / 1 km of flood barrier. A standard articulated trailer (see right) will store/ transport around 2000m / 2km of DEMA model AquaDam.

Your choice - same barriers arranged to best suit your needs.

Low cost - for total flood barrier lengths in excess of 50m acquisition costs are very modest as compared with metal frame & skirt sytems.   

Beredskabsstyrelsen Midtjylland, the Danish Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) contracted with us to purchase 40 x 25m DEMA model AquaDams. Thus far (November 2018) Beredskabsstyrelsen have purchased around 240 AquaDam units (6km) plus accessories.

Well proven and visibly effective - The most powerful argument for selecting AquaDam is that the system is visibly effective. For any flood protection system to be credible there should be lots of photographs of that product working correctly in real life flood events (not to be confused with staged demonstrations). Naturally, such photographs will be available on company websites and across the internet. AquaDam was first manufactured around 1985. AquaDam in Europe and the USA can boast plenty of such photographs and videos across the internet, social media and on this website. AquaDam Flood Protection Gallery
