Inflatable Flood Barriers

Description

Inflatable flood barriers, also known as flood control tubes or inflatable dams, consist of long tubes that can be connected to form a continuous barrier against floods, much like a multi-use dam.

They are easily transportable when deflated and quickly inflated with air on-site. Once in position, the barriers are filled with water, making them robust, heavy, and resistant to water leakage. Despite their sturdiness, the barriers are flexible enough to take the shape of the ground surface.

These versatile inflatable flood barriers can be used for:

  • Protecting landscape and assets
  • Diverting water streams (from construction sites, for example)
  • Protect critical infrastructures, buildings and properties
  • Act as temporary bridges
  • Act as temporary water storages or tanks (for fire-fighting vehicles or swimming pools, for example)

Laminar’s flood barrier protection system guarantees fast installation of these barriers whenever and wherever needed, protecting houses, buildings, roads, and assets. Our portable flood barriers are designed for durability and multi-use, making them very cost-effective.

With quick deployment and reliable flood protection, our inflatable flood barriers are ideal for properties, homeowners, businesses, construction companies, and local authorities with a low budget.

Benefits

  • ROBUST TEMPORARY SOLUTION

Reusable and robust flood defence system – can be used in any location and at any time. Stable even against strong waves.

  • QUICK TO SET-UP

Lightweight can be moved quickly into the position and assembled on-site, way faster than conventional metal flood barriers. Installs quickly with only 1 or 2 people.

  • EXTENDABLE

The inflatable water dams can be strapped together to make a long, continuous dam. Link more parts to make the barrier as long as needed to hold back the flood water.

  • ADD EXTRA HEIGHT FOR HIGH FLOODS

A third tube element can be strapped on top of the two base elements to form a taller barrier in case of high or rising floods.

  • FLEXIBLE TO PREVENT LEAKS

The water-filled barriers are adaptable enough to rest on the ground surface so that there is little or no seepage underneath up to the height you need.

  • EASY TO TRANSPORT

The flood barriers can be deflated for easy loading and handling.

  • REQUIRES MINIMAL STORAGE SPACE

Once emptied, these individual flood barrier parts can be rolled up and folded neatly for future use.

  • BETTER THAN SANDBAGS

Sandbags are traditional flood barriers that require more manpower and more storage space and take longer to set up. In many places like Singapore, sandbag disposal rules must be followed. Moreover, the sandbags cannot be reused.

FAQ's

Flood barriers are crucial in mitigating the devastating effects of heavy rain and controlling floodwaters. They offer several advantages in terms of flood protection and damage prevention.

They provide immediate protection against rising water levels. By creating a physical barrier, they can effectively divert or contain floodwaters, safeguarding homes, businesses, and infrastructure from potential damage.

Flood barriers are versatile and adaptable to different settings, including urban areas, coastal regions, and riverbanks. They provide protection and are easy to install and maintain.

Many modern systems are modular and portable, enabling quick deployment when needed. This flexibility ensures communities respond swiftly to changing weather conditions and potential flooding threats.

Flood barriers have drawbacks, including high installation and maintenance costs that some communities or individuals may find challenging to afford.

Flood management demands more than flood barriers. Comprehensive water management strategies are necessary to avoid unintended consequences. Long-term solutions for managing water flow should be implemented alongside flood barriers.
